About a month ago I received a copy of Ding Dong the Diva’s Dead by Cat in the mail… a gripping mystery/suspense novel by the talented Cat Melodia, for which I was lucky enough to be able to illustrate the cover! The book won’t be in print and available in bookstores until early next year, so I’ve also had the fortune to be able to read it. It’s not in my usual preferred genres (sci-fi or nonfiction), but it’s a really fun read, populated with animated characters and edgy relationship geometry: even for a non-opera singer, this is highly entertaining.
