Wednesday Scramble

Tomorrow's Guest Blogger

Jacqueline Seewald, author of the new Five Star mystery release The Truth Sleuth, will be here to give us a technique for breaking through writer's block.

On Again Off Again Internet Access

We're changing wireless service providers at our house and due to a technicality I totally don't understand, we'll be without service for up to four days. As a result, I'll be checking in whenever I can.

And Finally, What You've Been Waiting For:

Monday's "eye on you" belonged to a burro, one of the descendants of the burros that served miners during the gold boom days in northwest Arizona. Oatman, AZ, to be exact. These burros roam the streets, begging carrots from the tourists.

And why is that kinda sorta writing related? Because part of The Desert Hedge Murders is set in Oatman, and some of these burros make a cameo appearance in my story.

That's all for this Wednesday. I hope you'll join us tomorrow for Jacqueline's guest post.

Pat - Good luck with your internet switch. Those things are always a pain, even when they go smoothly. I hope yours isn't too bad.

And... a burro!? How wrong was I!? Makes me think of your Sylvia Thorn's encounter with burros in The Desert Hedge Murders ;-)

A burro! Now there's an animal that you don't see often in a novel.

So close and yet so far...

Did anyone guess burro?

Pretty sure I would NEVER have guessed burro... :) He's a cute little guy!
