Fiction is about stuff that’s screwed up.
– Nancy Kress
Dana is scurrying around The Attic Agency Office when Bast walks into the room.
Bast: What are you doing?
Dana: Getting ready for the big launch.
Bast: Our agency opening reception. I thought all was…
Dana: No, no, not that. Sharon A. Crawford’s book launch. You know the author who created us?
Bast: Of course. That is coming up already?
Dana: Yes, this Sunday. October 19. We have to get the word out Bast about her book Beyond Blood.
Bast: You mean before our agency opening?
Dana: Yes, and Sharon’s book launch has to happen first so that Beyond Blood can happen.
Bast: You mean our actual launch, the kidn…
Dana: Sh. Bast, don’t give it all away. People have to come to the book launch and buy a copy of Beyond Blood to find out what happens.
Bast: Right. And we should also mention what else is happening at the Book Launch.
Dana: Yes. The book launch is also for another first time mystery novelist, Klaus Jakelski’s book Dead Wrong. It’s a medical mystery.
Bast: Yes. And Klaus is a medical doctor in Sudbury, Ontario.
Dana: And Sharon, like you is a former journalist, although she covered health as well as some crime stories.
Bast: Sharon is also short like you. In fact, she has a couple of inches on you.
Dana: Bast. Leave my height out of it.
Bast (chuckling): Okay, if you wish.
Dana: What I wish is to find that poster that Blue Denim Press, Sharon’s and Klaus’s publisher, had printed. Have you seen it?
Bast: Yes, right here on my desk.
Dana and Bast grab the poster, hold it up and together announce:
