Let's just make sure Fell doesn't lay  hands on a carving knife...
You can always get what you want if you never count the cost.

I love how the teaser preview of question 2 ("Why did you write a book about serial killers?") cuts off halfway through the sentence, so it just says "One day driving home from writing group, someone found out about my secret hobby." Without the last three words of the sentence ("serial killer research"), that quote sounds really creepy.

Very nice, Dan!
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Finished I am NOT a Serial Killer in one sitting last night, and all I can say is the quote that marks the book as "unput-downable" is spot on.  I love this book, and I want to share my copy with everybody I know.  Mr. Wells: Kudos Sir, you've made a slightly crazy fanboy out of me.
