My first author interview and next writing projects

It is still in progress, but the first two installments of my discussion and interview with Qiu Xiaolong appear on Nearly Nothing but Novels. What a kind man and a terrific novelist. I took a break to read his two latest novels and write a bunch of environmental posts elsewhere, but I'll wrap it up soon.

On the subject of the environment, I just spoke (rather unexpectedly) at my State representative's "State of the State" address: I'm multitasking so much that I guess I didn't read… Continue

View the Tube

They told me the place to be if you're in video is YouTube. So, I got some talented friends to come over with video equipment and a microphone and cut what could be the most shameless bit of self promotion anyone has ever created. Still, if you'd like to see and hear me personally explain why you need to read my novel Blood and Bone, but can't make it to one of my signings, this is the best way. View my video and add yourself to the 1261… Continue

Honorable mention, motherfucker!

Ha ha! I'd like to thank my good, good friend, Ray Nessly, for giving me much needed revisions, and also The Dwarves, for being the greatest band ever.

The Wisdom of Aerosmith

I've been running a sort of trivia game on my daily joke page in which I defy my readers to tell me the source of various song lyrics. In the process of wandering through my music collection for inspiration I realized how positive most rock and roll is. For example, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith prompts us to try something new once in a while, especially if life is disappointing. In his song, "Get a Grip" he makes the reason clear - "If you do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've… Continue
