I just read EPITAPH in THRILLER. What a great well-rounded story. Nice snippets of whit from Phin and excellent full-circle plot leaving just enough "ah-ha" for the end.

Cool story Joe.

Joe, found a virtual assistant who works at reasonable rates and takes a load off. Think about it. Worth my investment! Best of luck.

See, this is why I registered. I can still post. Your interviews were great Joe and I take this entire post to heart. I have a vision of you smiling at a paperback copy of Rusty Nail, and that shows the excitement never goes away entirely. I am just starting out and will hold on to the excitement for as long as I can. I promise. Terrie

I was just spammed for the third time by someone selling prepaid cell phones, so I'm turning off anonymous posts for awhile.

If you don't have a blogger account and want to leave a comment, it only takes a minute to join, and it's free.

There's something to be said for the ability to retain a "beginner's mind", in the Zen sense -- where everything is always possible, and fresh -- and to avoid hubris, not matter how big one gets.

Once you lose that, no matter the pursuit, you've lost the magic, methinks.

Congrats on the new box of new books, Joe. May the smile last awhile :)

Dude, writing is like the Army. It's not just a job, it's an adventure!

It's just that sometimes you're on K.P. detail. :-)

Yes, my fellow participant in PERFECTLY PLUM, everyone better hurry up and buy it! ;)

Yes, it's a job and there are days when it's more of a slog than others. And then there are the days where we take a moment to breathe, and realize it's still the best job in the world (for us, anyway)!

My first little bit of an essay that's going to actually be on the shelf in Borders? Totally psyched! (Okay, honestly, terrified.)

My stories and novellas? I don't even know when they're released anymore.

But I still treasure, treasure, treasure my reader mail. They awe me. That they seem inspired to share such vulnerable tidbits about themselves, just because they read my book ... that is so special to me. I never know what to say. I always feel so inadequate in my responses.

Have you ever thought about doing a post on how to respond to reader mail?

Joe: although I still haven't had the privilege of meeting you in person, I still think a lot of you based on what you've done for writers with this blog / web site.

So I just wanted to say "congrats" on that enviable state of "relaxed confidence" you now seem to be enjoying. Gives me something to shoot for.

In the meantime, I still get giddy, when, say, I read my referrer logs and notice that someone clicked over to my new serialized podiobook from the comments on your site. So please, feel free to make me giddy: THE VEINGEL, a free serialized dark fantasy / thriller. (hell, you might even be entertained).

Keep up the good work, Joe!

My humble opinion of Whiskey Sour is my Blog Review for this month. Here

Loved the interviews, Joe. They're almost like reading one of your short stories - very funny. Plus, they have great info for struggling writers.

Like many of the frequent commenters here, I can't thank you enough for all the good stuff you've shared with us.

2007-05-23T06:37:00.000-05:00

I'm with you Joe. It's a great job, by the way, but a job and I sometimes miss that enthusiasm that used to come with every byline and every sale. I still love the sales, etc., but sometimes, when I get a call from my agent or editor, I can just tell a part of my brain is going, "Oh jeez, what now?"

Must need an attitude adjustment (again).

I'm still one of those newbies waiting for his debut to come out (Sept 07 to avid book buyers.)

So when I read an interview with a big deal successful writer like Joe Konrath and he mentions me...it makes me giddy.
