    Hi, Morgan and T.J.,

    Love reading and writing mystery fiction. When my sons were teenagers, we collaborated on a YA mystery entitled WHERE IS ROBERT? We were thrilled when the novel was published. Wishing you every success.

    Terrific interview. I enjoyed getting to know both of you a bit better through this. Marketing and blogging is a time-consuming process but it’s important and generates more than sales, it generates live-long fans. And as for books we’ve written that should never see the light of day? We all have at least one of those!!

    Fun interview! TJ brings up an important point – with e-books taking over the known universe, nobody is standing guard at the quality gate. And if everybody and their uncle can slap a title on their laundry list and pop it up on Kindle, readers might start thinking a little more seriously about turning on the TV instead. But I don’t think the e-book market is going to tighten any reins at all. If anything, the process is becoming more open. But that’s OK because readers are going to start paying more attention to reader reviews. I’ll take a chance on an unknown authors, but not if the reviews are bad. So maybe the whole field is changing in a more democratic, meritocratic way.

      Exactly William. I still think it’s all down to the reviews. But then I go and see a film that’s panned and end up enjoying it, but a writer can only know so many people; have 50 five stars and 100 one stars, that’s got to say something. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. Morgen
