I’m writing everyday. I’m putting my butt in the chair whether I feel like it or not. That’s how books get finished.

Some days are good. Some days are just okay. But I rarely regret making the time and doing the work.

As Carlos Castaneda on mindset: “The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same.”

Here are 3 crime fiction links, 2 quotes, and 1 question for this week:



Two quotes from Connelly’s Harry Bosch this week:

  • “When one link is broken, the chain will come loose.”
  • “Hollywood. You build a city in the desert, water it with false hopes and false idols, and eventually this is what happens.”


  • What is your favorite Bosch book? I’m partial to ANGLEL’S FLIGHT.

Until next Thursday, happy reading,
