Congrats to you and Ken Bruen on you Mcavity (sp) award for "Tower, a novel." A great book, great read, great heart. I'm waiting for Innocent Monsters from Amazon. I expect no less.

Hi Reed. I wonder if you'd be interested in contributing a brief review of a forgotten book to my blog project in early August. You can find samples of the previous weeks here:

If you're too busy or it's not your thing, I understand and thank you for reading this. Best, Patti Abbott

A little Judy bird told me it was your birthday. Have the happiest one yet. By the way, Christmas came early to the Hiller home. I received this box of books from Judy, 4 of them were yours! Yipeeeee.

Dear Uncle Reed-
Ours went fine, too. It was a lot of fun to be on a panel with Chris Grabenstein, Roberta Islieb, Jonathan Santlofar, and Jeff Markowitz. I'm looking forward to my first library panel in March!

Good lord, a writer promoting something! Alert the media! :)
Hell, if it was here in LA I'd come for the free food.

Joan doesn't behave much either, do you Joan? You do have good taste though!
