And to Sum it all Up

Wow, this has been quite a journey, fourteen mystery authors all visiting one another for fourteen days.

I knew some of the authors and their books before we started, others I only knew their names. Because we were supposed to visit each blog every day--not always possible--I learned even more about the authors I knew and became acquainted with the others.

Another plus was all the writing information that was produced each day. It was enlightening to read other writers' views about so many topics.

On my own blog, I asked each one to write about setting. What was so amazing was the different approaches to the same topic. Some wrote about the importance of setting, others gave examples of ways to describe setting, and still others wrote about the settings in their own mysteries. I hope all my visitors enjoyed reading the various posts as much as I did.

One other chore each of us was supposed to do was promote two blogs a day, his or her own and the one she or he was appearing on that day.

I promised to give a copy of my latest Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery, Bears With Us, to one of the people who commented on one of my visiting posts, and I have randomly, Patricia Gilgor. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did writing it.

Would I do one of these again? You betcha. It was a lot of work but also a lot of fun. Anne Albert was the mastermind behind this--the idea and the scheduling.

What's next? Maybe I can get some work done. (See below)

Meet Central Valley's Most Prolific  Author at Porterville, CA Art Gallery

Marilyn Meredith also writes as F. M. Meredith
Friday and Saturday, December 9-10

9 am to 5 pm 
Christmas Boutique
152 N. Main St, Porterville, CA

Praise for the Rocky Bluff PD series...  Angel Lost is the seventh in F. M. Meredith’s Rocky Bluff Police Department series, and fans of this series will be delighted to learn that it delivers everything we have come to expect in these books – characters that feel like neighbors and a handful and a half of subplots all neatly woven together... Meredith wraps everything up in a most satisfactory fashion. These books are a sort of cross between The Waltons and Hill Street Blues, and I hope there are many more to come.

Merry Christmas, Marilyn. It's so nice to know you after these two blog tours.
This was fun, Marilyn, and it was great to hang out with you, virtually, anyway. It would be great to meet face to face some day.

Have a great holiday season.

It was a great tour, especially getting to know everyone better. Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Marilyn, and a Happy New Year.

Marilyn, you always amaze and inspire me to do better. I'm so grateful to have 'met' you online and that together we chose to create the Mystery We Write Blog Tour. (I can't wait for the 2012 edition.)

Happy writing, and happy reading!
I loved every minute of the blog tour. Merry Christmas, everyone. Get a good rest and keep on promoting. Hope to see you all here and there.
