PHOENIX LAW  
THE PHOENIX LAW is now available at eHarlequin.com's webstore. (Has been for a couple weeks, in fact, but I forgot.) It'll be in stores December 2006, and no other time, so please do go forth and buy it!

This is the last Cate Dermody book for the foreseeable future. I've got a couple ideas to write for Harlequin's new Nocturne line, but whether I actually get to that or not remains to be seen. I hope that in a couple years I'll be in a position to re-package the rest of the Strongbox Chronicles and sell them as spy-thrillers (let's all practice saying, Catie aims for mainstream!), but it's not on my list of things to do right now. It wouldn't hurt, though, to have a great sell-through on PHOENIX if I'm going to do that. She said encouragingly. :)

Dear Ms Murphy

Please pardon me for asking this question but, as you will see, it is quite urgent.

You see, we're currently reorganisng our bookshelves, replacing IKEA Ivar ones with the ShelfStore ones that dduane and petermorwood have.

In the process, we're sorting and cataloguing the books. We've got as far as B, and are now waiting on delivery of more shelves. So ... the question:

Do you want to be shelved under one name, or multiples?

Thank you for your prompt reply

Yours

A reader

Dear Reader:

It's entirely up to you. My inclination would be to shelve me separately because I'm writing under more than one name; I don't shelve Megan Lindholm and Robin Hobb in the same place, even if they're the same person. However, if you enjoy the continuity of having all books by the same person in one place, I'm comfortable with having Murphy and Dermody cheek and jowl, what with them sharing the same body and all.

Yours,

C.E. Murphy, aka
Cate Dermody

Dear Ms Murphy

Thank you for your response.

On due consideration, we have come to the conclusion that ordering by name of author is inequitable, and possibly ultimately unachievable due to the differing ordering conventions in different languages. Instead, we have decided that a far more aesthetic solution is to file firstly by size in order to achieve maximum density, and then by Pantone reference number of the spine colour within that.

We appreciate that this may, on occasion, cause a series of books to be dispersed, but would urge you to petition your publishers not just for consistency in cover art, but also in spine colour.

Again, thank you for your assistance.

Yours,

A reader
