    Now I just need some reviews. No that wasn't a plug. Just an observation that they seem harder to get For nonfiction when it's not about murder.

    I've got something that's almost Braggatoria, and I hope is fun. I guest-posted a humorous bit about "Character Rebellion" at the MotiveMeansOpportunity mystery writer blog. Topic: What happens when your characters won't cooperate with the story you want to write?

    In my case, characters in my grave-robbing WIP decided robbing graves is too much hard work, so they issued a list of complaints! If you’ve got a minute for a quick laugh, click here to visit.

    Best wishes,
    Peter

    So my book in my siggy is up to 32 college/university libraries in 19 states, and 1 of them in Ont., Canada; and a 350-yr-old library in Berlin, Germany that I can't pronounce. It was well received in the Native American communities I spoke at and they want me back to speak to larger groups. The signings I did for other folks have been pretty good too. Sometime within the next two months I'll know about royalties. But with this particular book, to be honest, I'm more interested in it being well received. I'm addicted to worldcat.

    Thanks Peter! It's a shame Calla Lily that a lot of regular libraries don't use worldcat any more and opt for their own regional systems. Cost I imagine?
