Help First Book

First Book is a charity which donates books to children. J.A. Konrath says on his blog here today that he will donate $500.00 to First Book if his book Origin breaks into the top 100 at the Kindle Store.

So, let's all help First Book by buying a copy (or two) of Origin.

J.A. Konrath's Blog Today

If you have some extra time tonight, go to J.A. Konrath's Blog and read the interview with Mark Coker from Smashwords on March 28. Interesting information about Smashwords and indie publishing.

While there are a lot of questions for Mark Coker about Smashwords, I think he does a good job of responding to them. It's worth reading not only the interview but the comments as well.

What I'm Doing Now

I've been working on my short story collection for the past week. I'm writing the two new stories I'm adding to the collection. There's one new Lori and Panzer story and one new non-series story. Yes, I am writing both at the same time. I like multitasking! 

I was hoping to be ready for formatting by next week, but it will be later in April before I'm finished.

Life seems to have a way of interfering with our plans!

Cats and Crime?

Why name a blog Cats and Crime?

I chronicle the Lori Stockley the private investigator and Panzer the cat short story adventures. Lori investigates the lesser crimes in her world: drug dealing, burglary, bank robbery, and theft.

Lori and I leave the murder investigations to her policeman husband, Detective Matt Stockley.

So there you have it. Cats and Crime.
