Art Taylor

Oh, I love the cover! And very much like the story behind the story here too. Congrats on the new collection and with such a fine publisher. I'll tell Jeff to put aside one of the numbered editions for me!

Kathy Lynn Emerson

Congrats, Elaine. Crippen & Landru are wonderful to work with. Doug published a collection of my Lady Appleton short stories some years back and it was a great experience.

Elaine Viets

Thank you, Art. I have your stories -- you're an award-winning storyteller.

Elaine Viets

Delighted to know this, Kathy Lynn.

Terri Parsons


Elaine Viets

Thanks, Terri. You'll get to see it at Malice Domestic this year.

Hank Phillippi Ryan

SO GREAT! Congratulations! Can't wait to toast you at Malice!

Storyteller Mary

Brava! . . . so the man/devil didn't get your car, but he did give you a story idea. He had no idea who he was dealing with. ;-)

Elaine Viets

LOL, Mary. Mama said don't talk to strange men, but this one gave me a story.

Elaine Viets

See you there, Hank. Thanks for stopping by.

Diana Wunning

Love the cover. Can't wait to get my copy at Malice. See you there.Congratulations on the new anthology.

Elaine Viets

Oh, good! You're going to be at Malice, too. See you soon.

Mare Fairchild

I like it. I like it a lot!

Elaine Viets

Me, too, Mare. Glad you like it. It's different from my other covers, but striking.

Alan P.

Love the cover! Personally, I think the Devil drives a BMW. I spend a lot of time in traffic. I seem to tell many BMW drivers to go to Hell. But you are the author.

BTW, look for the cover on your web site later this afternoon.

Marcia Talley

Even though I've read all your stories ... except Devil ... I want them all together in one place. Congratulations on this collection, Elaine, and the super cover! See you at Malice!

Elaine Viets

Thank you, Alan Portman. Folks, Alan is my masterful Web master. He does a devil of a job.
About BMWs. Down here in Florida, those drivers win the Biggest Jerks on the Road award, hands down. But I still think the devil drives a Mercedes

Elaine Viets

Thanks, Marcia. I've read your short stories, too. You need a collection.

Alison J McMahan

The Cover really says "Florida" to me! Hot people driving hot cars about to commit hot crimes in broiling sunlight! Love it!

Sally Goldenbaum

Congratulations, Elaine. Amazing cover (and author!). Looking forward to reading it.

Susan Oleksiw

Love the cover, and I love the genesis of the story! Congratulations, and look forward to reading the collection.

Nancy G. West

Great cover and tale about how you came to write the lead story. Congratulations!

Elaine Viets

You got it, Alison -- or rather, the artist perfectly captured the scene.

Elaine Viets

Thanks, Sally.

Elaine Viets

Hope you'll enjoy it, Nancy.


Elaine, I absolutely ADORE the cover!

Elaine Viets

Thank you, Sasscer. And congratulations on the good reviews for your new book.
