No, not mine. I’m thoroughly, goofily happy for my friend and fellow JABberwockian, Jeri Westerson who has finally landed the big fish: A Book Deal! With St. Martin’s no less. For her very excellent medieval noir detective novel Veil of Lies. Yup, you read that right: medieval noir. If you imagine Philp Marlowe or the Continental Op as a thirteenth century knight whose gotten stripped of his spurs and is now out on the mean streets of England hustling up work as a detective and general go-to guy of problem solveage you will have a good idea of what her protagonist Crispin Guest is like. Yes, of course I like him! What a silly question. I can hardly wait to see it in print at last! (and maybe she’ll finally let me read the whole thing.)
Congratulations, Jeri! You rock!
