New review of WIGGLE ROOM on Martha Cheves' "A Book and a Dish"


Sometimes writers have to take a break. For many authors that means a jog around the block, an afternoon of yard work, or a round of golf ... for a lucky few, maybe a trip to Europe. Of course, a cruise might be a nice time to reflect and finish the next bestseller. However, for me a cruise is out -- since I get seasick much like my protagonist Brad Cummins in my latest thriller "Wiggle Room." (Actually Brad suffers from air sickness, a potential problem when you're an Air Force trauma surgeon.)

When taking a break from writing, I don't jog, but I work to polish off a couple of miles on the treadmill upstairs or on a neighborhood walk. Believe or not, I enjoy yardwork as another sideline. There is great catharsis in yanking up weeds.

Now author and chef Martha Cheves has challenged my versatility in a different manner, psuhing me to relax while still being constructive and creative. She's trying to turn me into a cook!

Martha asked me to take my laptop into the kitchen and submit a favorite recipe for her to publish along with her new review of "Wiggle Room."

Bon appetit!

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel tentatively titled Wiggle Room.)

The results of my non-scientific experiment are detailed in this essay and presented in the guise of a blog entry on my author’s website. While it is meant primarily to interest other authors or maybe publishers, I hope the piece is clever enough for my book fans as well. I was intrigued when author Jeffrey Marks recently reported his own experience with advertising on FaceBook, publishing an article and follow-up piece in the Mystery Writers of America newsletter. I decided to see for myself.…

Mystery Author Darden North to Sign Novels at Mississippi Picnic in NYC

____________________________________

Date: 6/5/2010
Time: Noon til Dusk
Location: Central Park East Meadow between 5th Avenue and 97th Street

Darden North will join other native Mississippi authors and artists at the 2010 Mississippi Picnic in Central Park East Meadow in the Mississippi Authors tent. Copies of Norths three novels will be available for purchase and signing.

The New York Mississippi Picnic was started in 1979 as the brainchild of a handful of native Mississippians living in New York City. The group joined together to create an event to highlight Mississippi’s attributes. The first picnic attracted some 500 individuals, and that number has steadily increased over the years; the 2010 picnic is expected to attract more than 2,000 picnic-goers! In addition to the picnic and live music, there will be a Mississippi Authors Tent where mystery and suspense author Darden North and others will have their work available for purchase and autographing.
