Alas, my interview with Phil Hawley will have to be postponed today.  I’m down with a flu bug I caught at Left Coast Crime.  It would be terribly ungracious of me to not be able to thank those who comment – or chit-chat with all of you – and Phil wouldn’t be able to be here either – he’s got tons of kids that need his attention.  That’s what happens when you’re a dedicated busy doctor first, and thriller writer second.

BUT – that doesn’t mean I can’t tell you what a terrific book Phil’s debut is!  STIGMA is one fast ride that will keep you – as they say – glued to the edge of your seat.

Stigma_thumb STIGMA will be out in March and believe me when I say it is one of the best debut’s ever.  I mean, have I ever led you astray?  So get your order in (favorite indie naturally) and be prepared to sit in awe that this is a first book.  We’ll catch up with Phil soon and it goes without saying that all of us here at Murderati wish him great success.

But please do stop back next Wednesday and have a few laughs with Jim Born and Evil E.

    Hope you’re feeling better, EE. And it was great to see you in person–as beautiful as I thought you’d be. Just got back from Seattle; we stayed a couple of extra days to see friends and do some sightseeing.

    Now I’ve got to piece together my mess of a desk and get back into writing. And looking forward to a future installment with P-H-I-L.

    Get well, Elaine!

    And Phil, nice to meet you in Seattle. But since we didn’t get much time together, I having a feeling that I’ll get to know you better when you and Evil E. finally coordinate your interview.

    I’m reading STIGMA right now and can tell you that Phil’s a GREAT writer. The kind of prose that just grabs hold of you and sucks you in.

    Hope you feel better soon and look forward to the interview.

    And I agree with JT — Phil is one of the nicest guys around.

    Thanks for stopping by all you great people! I promise we’ll have Phil back – and I’m glad to see he was able to take a moment to stop by as well…hope he’s still talking to me after not being able to get his interview up and running.

    Back to bed for me…

    Oh, and my thanks for the get better wishes and Naomi? You need to get new glasses asap :)xoxo

    I want to know: how is Phil well enough to comment, but not well enough to answer OTB queries?

    In for a penny, Philip…

    You’ve now forced the issue. You, like all of us at one time or another, HAVE to answer Evil’s insipid questions.

    It’s a rite of passage.

    I have risen from my sick bed to be a somewhat gracious hostess and what do I find? INSIPID QUESTIONS???

    First I get hit with the apostrophe barb and now this?

    Note to male readers: I may have two openings in my Secret Love Club.
