DELIVER US FROM EVELYN: RIPPED FROM THE HEADLINES

Some more recent stories in the news that run a frightening parallel to my upcoming novel, Deliver Us From Evelyn (Harvest House Publishers) ...
CONRAD BLACK IN COURT (BBC)
The former Hollinger exec has appeared in a U.S. courtroom to answer charges of fraud totaling $84 million. Black was heard muttering about "character assassination" on his arrival at the Chicago courthouse. NYP: Black's courtroom manner was "sullen" and "glowering." Guardian: Black was "steely but subdued."
Chicago Reader: The 8th count is the juiciest.

SEE JANE SKEWERED (NYP)
The main character of a forthcoming novel about a magazine called "Jill" bears
an uncanny resemblance to former Jane founder and editor Jane Pratt, sparking
speculation that it may be an "unofficial" version of the split between
Fairchild and Pratt.

(Of course, to tell you the truth, some of these "frightening parallels" are because they are ongoing stories that inspired the book in the first place. Hey, we novelists have to get our ideas somewhere.)
