Two Things...

By Cornelia

Thing the First:

The lovely and talented Julia Buckley has posted an interview with me on her blog, Mysterious Musings.

Thing the Second:

International Thriller Writers is having a contest in which one lucky reader can win 150 amazing signed books, written by ITW members. Here's the scoop:


It's a thriller lover's dream - the chance to win autographed copies of 150 novels by some of the biggest and best thriller authors in the business. That's right, 150 thrillers, signed by the authors.

Imagine receiving signed books by Joseph Finder, Tess Gerritsen, John Lescroart, Gayle Lynds, and David Baldacci for free. Then multiply that by thirty, because they represent only five of the 150 books you will receive if you're the winner in the International Thriller Writer's 150 Thrillers contest. The best part? Just by entering you'll begin receiving the free ITW newsletter, a monthly email newsletter that contains loads of information about upcoming thriller novels, thriller authors and thriller news.

All you have to do is go to www.150Thrillers.com before February 15th and sign up to get the free ITW newsletter. That's it.

Once you've subscribed, you're entered. The winner will be picked randomly from all entrants, and will receive 150 books from some of the top thriller novelists writing today. Three runner-up entrants will each receive a copy of the 2006 Thriller Anthology, edited by James Patterson. But really, everyone who signs up to receive the ITW newsletter is a winner.

So go on, sign up. You know you want to.

*Please note, there is a limit of one entry per person. And, as always, ITW will not share or sell your email information with others.

I hope to write an actual post after driving the sprogs to their schools tomorrow morning...


  1. Ms. C,

    I love the interview. I didn't know about the Caroline Dare/Cornelia Read juxtaposition, and I thought I knew all your stories!

    And I'll introduce you to Barbara Seranella at LCC, if you promise not to say "Dude, you are so awesome."

  2. "Sprogs"...love it ;-)

  3. from Jacqueline

    And I thought it was just Brits who used the word "sprog." See, you learn something new every day.

  4. Louise, you are a spoilsport. May I kiss her ring?

    Rae, ;-}

    And Our J--my children are British. They demand to be called sprogs. Wait... that's not it....

  5. Cornelia,
    Great interview on Julia's blog.

    I especially like the comments about writhing and pride. I'll have to hunt down that post on this blog.

    Like you, I fall into those "Wagnerian" cycles far too often.

  6. That interview had me laughing.

    Dryer lint. My goodness.

    I linked to it.

  7. Thank you, Mindy and Pari!

    I have now officially fashioned my dryer lint into a tiara...
