SPS

When I was a kid, if I brought home the news that my teacher had particularly praised some project of mine, my father would frown and say, “SPS.” This stands for “self praise stinks.” Actually he only had to do this twice before I learned to be truly ashamed of ever letting anyone know about praise in my life.  So forgive me for violating the SPS mantra, but Booklist has given Hardball a starred review, which is very pleasing, and Chicago Magazine named me Chicago’s “best mystery writer.”  Okay, I’ll go away and be quiet and promise I won’t do this again for a long time, although I will post links to pieces I write if they appear online.
