I had the nicest compliment when I took J.J. (AKA the Ancient One) in for his shots last week. I had mentioned to my vet at his last visit (a few months ago when he had a UTI) that I’d written A Most Malicious Murder. She told me that her mom had also published some stories and we chatted a bit about being indie authors and how that had really opened up publishing for a lot of people

Cut to last week’s visit when my vet shocked me silly by praising AMMM to the skies and went on to say that she’d told her mom about it, who also loved the book and left a review on Amazon. I told her a little bit about the impetus behind AMMM and the possibility of a sequel and she was very enthusiastic about that so maybe I do actually have to write the damn sequel after all.
