Hi Alan, Have posted about Noir Nation on Facebook (also liked your page) and Twitter (am following you and would appreciate a follow back - I'm jenthom72). I'll also post it on my blog http://ramblingsofafrustratedcrimewriter.blogspot.com later tonight when I do my update.
I can't imagine a more beautifully foreign concept for me than 'family cotton farm'. Sort of like 'villa in the south of Italy." Very romantic to a girl north of the border. Hope the tornado damage was not severe.
Eddie, I'm catching up . . . checkin' in. How are the responses to your contest? Any from CrimeSpace? I like the $25 honoraria: it would let me expense off a couple of things this year. One question: is the contest still open?
Alan, opening Noir Nation with such a great invitation to writers adds spice and challenge and fun to the time I spend in CrimeSpace, and . . . to my writing life. This dialogue is one that I've awaited--it seems--my whole life. It's long overdue; it is. I'm shapening my pencil now and can't wait to get my hands on the first issue! Woot! (Now back to the forum).
