My dear friend and CBC, Kathryn, has published her first book! I cannot even begin to describe the thrilling sense of joy that is sweeping through my being right now! Having acted out the play the book was based on, and getting to read the preliminary copy, I know this tale is one of extraordinary characters, compelling plot, and page-turning excitement. Maybe one day, I shall manage to pen a review worthy of such a story.
I must direct you to the CreateSpace link, of course, so you can pick up your own copy of this marvelous book! Did you visit yet? Click here! You absolutely must read this wonderful mystery!

1. What is your favorite Historical Mystery book? *ahem*Christmas at the Tittletons*ahem* And no, I'm not being biased! Okay, maybe I am a little biased, but I have good reason to be so; it's that good. If I'm not allowed to say such things because the author happens to be my CBC, then I'd pick The Hound of the Baskervilles, the famous Sherlock Holmes story.
2. Would you rather read a Classic or a Mystery? If I really had to choose, probably classic. I'm in the middle of Dickens right now, so my mind is greatly geared towards classics, although I do love a good mystery.
3. How do you think Christmas at the Tittletons will compare to your favorite Mystery? Compares grandly and not at all. Odd answer, you think? Let me explain... grandly in the sense that it can sit in equal rights beside your volume of Sherlock Holmes; not at all in the sense that this is unlike any mystery you will ever read. You have the same gripping elements of an exceptional mystery, but never have you encountered a mystery like this!
4. How do you think Christmas at the Tittletons will compare to your favorite Classic? My favorite classic (for the moment) is Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens, and let me tell you, CatT may be a lot shorter than a Dickens, but the tale weaves together such intricate characters that Dickens would be proud of. I love the way certain characters have their own little habits that make them so... them. Kathryn, I think you know of whom I speak. ;)
5. Do you think you would like to write a Historical Mystery sometime? Me? Most likely. I have some plans for a HM, but I haven't any solid notes on projects yet. My mind is too steeped in fantasy at the moment.
