It's official: The Taylor Stevens group was fantastic!

Responding to my grateful email message--for which the subject line was "Thanks! You were wonderful!"--Taylor replied, "I appreciate the kudos so much and I'm so glad that everyone had a good time!...  I enjoyed myself so much. You all were such a wonderful crowd, with fantastic questions. It was a blast."

Thanks to everyone who attended Taylor Stevens' September 21 author visit--and those of you who wished you could have.  (Claudia and Frank, we missed you.)  The occasion was characterized by a nice synergy, owing to Taylor's engaging speaking style and the variety of great questions and comments offered by all of you.  

Please tell your friends about Taylor's Vanessa Michael Munroe series.  Your participation in this event is truly appreciated.

Thanks for the post Linda, I tried to make notes on her comments and will post some of them eventually.

I also very much enjoyed the Taylor Stevens talk, and liked being able to get copies of four different books signed. If you are reading them in order, she recommends reading the novella before the fourth book (The Vessel http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-vessel-taylor-stevens/1119434742?ean=9780553419900). Stevens will be at BoucherCon in Raleigh NC (Oct 8-11; still time to get there); this is the world mystery convention. Looking forward to the movie by James Cameron.
