I've been quiet on the blogging front because I've been working hard on my fourth Mike Bowditch novel, Massacre Pond. Now that I am nearing the end, it feels like I am rising from the depths after having been submerged a long time. I describe the unreality of this experience at Maine Crime Writers today.

In other news, Edgar winner and Associated Press book critic Bruce DeSilva very kindly named Bad Little Falls to his list of the Best Crime Novels of 2012. To say that I am honored and grateful doesn't really do justice to the emotions I am feeling to be included with such great books.
