These messages first thing in the morning make the whole day....

From a pre-publication reader who is a successful author: "Hey, you're a damn good writer. It's almost 2:30 a.m. and I'm still reading. Enjoying it ["Joey's Place"] a lot."

Awesome JWNelson! My sister lives in Vegas. You need to do a signing there so I have an excuse to try to visit her, plus nab a signature.

Thank you! I will definitely be investigating Las Vegas' still-existing book stores along with its readers groups and clubs interested in local crime fiction. Having grown up in town during the 60's and 70's (my parents resided there from 1963 to 2002), I am looking forward to going home to "pitch" my first crime novel.
