Homocide’s my favorite venge

What? This cool rap song is by Ice-T. I don’t listen to rap, but I thought it would be apropos to start with this cool song title. The hubby and I are collaborating on a murder mystery. It is totally out of our usual genre, but we both love watching mystery and crime dramas in the evening, figuring out who-dun-it together!

At this moment, the story is called murder mystery, but for obvious reasons that won’t remain the title. We have one working title, but the manuscript says Murder Mystery. This makes us both laugh. We actually spent time at our favorite iHOP restaurant working through ideas and difficulties for this new story. We are even making a murder board like on TV shows and using words like modus operandi! Let me say, we are having a lot of fun.

All that being said, Phoenix Fan Fusion appears to be a no-go, again. They moved their convention out to the end of May, again. I guess we won’t be playing with them anymore. The difficulty lies in finding other book festivals, library events, and staging our own book signings. When we first started on this road of writing, we went to Bookman’s Used Books to sell. They were really kind, but there weren’t a lot of people to sell to. Most people go to Bookman’s to buy low-cost books. I don’t blame them. We did sell a few when we did this, though. Bookman’s a cool place. Their stores are huge, too. The hubby and I spent many an hour pouring over their shelves in search of great stories to read. I got my ukulele there. Don’t ask me if I can play it. I just have it, if you get my drift.

In the meantime, the hubby and I have too many cats. I even wrote a poem about my lack of enthusiasm for them. That’s how we will end this blog:

I don’t prefer kitties

It’s true

They slink;

Leaving hardly a clue.

Appearing quite cute;

So adorable.

But really the devil;

Quite horrible.

Kitties feign friendship,

They do!

But false companions

Asleep on your bed.

Don’t die in repose,

They’ll chew on your head.

Yes! Really the devil;

Quite horrible.
