Thank you, blog host Barbara Lunsford, for posting this. Barbara also has a website, Mystery Crime Scene, with tons of information about crime-related books, movies and TV shows.
The interview with Bridget Tunnicliffe of Radio New Zealand International, broadcast yesterday, went well (IMHO). If you missed it, here’s a link to a Podcast (abbreviated) and text synopsis: Memoir unmasks new evidence in 36 year old mystery.
Amazon Best Seller
Although the book no longer sits atop the Hot New Releases list (it’s no longer considered a “new release”), it had a remarkable and gratifying two-week run and remains in the top 10 of three Amazon Best Seller categories, including #3 in in Books > Biographies & Memoirs > Arts & Literature > Authors.
I have been getting a lot of (mostly) positive comments and reviews about the book. Thank you to those of you who have responded. Some of the emails include old photos from high school and my father as a young man.
I find most gratifying, however, emails from people I’ve never met, but who have written to thank me for writing the book. Often these people have also suffered a violent loss—joining the club none of us wanted to join—and say the book has helped them see that they are not alone, and the intense emotions they still feel years and even decades later are normal under the circumstances.
The book is now available (in English) in France and Germany. The reach of the Internet still astonishes me.
