one whirlwind month of GIRL!

Where did the time go? It's already April 21, which means that GIRL IN DISGUISE has been out in the world for exactly a month. It's been a whirlwind, to be sure, and I can't possibly sum it all up in its entirety here. But I can give you a few highlights, and thank readers profusely -- thank you, thank you, thank you! -- for giving Kate Warne's story such a warm welcome.

A few link-y highlights:

And then this, always this: while in Chicago, I spent some time at Graceland Cemetery, paying my respects to Kate, who is buried in the Pinkerton family plot. The big obelisk here is Allan Pinkerton's, and off to the far right you see three tall tombstones: a generic "employees of Pinkerton's National Detective Agency" stone, one for Timothy Webster (an obvious inspiration for Tim Bellamy in GIRL) and one for Kate.

Her name is misspelled on her stone as Kate Warn. I couldn't help correcting it, if only temporarily.
