Hey, that's pretty cool, Peter. I think she'd be wise to go with it.

Her books have started to take off here in the store since the Anthony award. More power to her.

I was chuffed to learn her thoughts on this matter, especially since (as I think I mentioned here once before) I spent a good deal of Bouchercon entertaining my fellow convention-goers with whimsical titles. "All you have to do now is write the books," I'd tell them. Now someone may take me up on it.

State of the Onion is a terrific title; I'd have been proud to come up with it.

You're single-handedly reshaping the crime fiction genre, Peter.

Oh, now don't say that. I believe that authors have and will continue to have an important role to play in the production of books.

That's the kind of profession I'd love to have!

I have already offered my services. The story of my life in the titling profession will be ghost-written, of course.

Next time I need a title I'll come to you - and put you in the acknowledgments unless you pay me not to.

I hope I can attain success on the James Patterson level and pay someone to come up with titles for me.

Haven't there been a few scandals in the UK involving the selling of titles?

My title-hawking will be entirely above board.

Smashing. State of the Onion is also a great title.

Whey to go, Peter!

Thanks, Paul. The title "State of the Onion" is structured like a little joke, the payoff coming at the end, like a good punch line. And it's a hell of a good punch line.

Solo, perhaps Julie Hyzy will save that one for a book in which a delegation from Kurdistan visits the White House.
