Jervey Tervalon, a June graduate of the UC Irvine Program in Writing, has sold the hardback and paperback rights of his first novel, "Understand This," to William Morrow/Avon Books. Tervalon, who now lives in Pasadena, says his book is one of the few contemporary novels dealing with South-Central Los Angeles, where he grew up and taught high school for five years. The novel's main character is an 18-year-old high school student who witnesses a shooting. He is not, however, a gang member.

"I was just fortunate in that I didn't know how good UCI was at the time," said O'Connor, who now teaches an advanced fiction workshop at UCI.

That's what fellow mystery fans call blatant self-promotion on Dorothy L, the Internet e-mail message group named after British mystery writer Dorothy L. Sayers. "You don't want to go on sounding like a detergent ad, so I posted sort of gently," says Lachnit, who lives in Long Beach. "I went on and basically said, 'Well, I'm a writer, and my book's coming out.
