Not at all. People do that all the time. We'll tell him that he's a poor, lonely, autistic boy with with dreams of seeing the United States before he dies from some multi-syllabic brain disease that leaves him incontinent and drooling. he should be able to pull off the incontinent and drooling part pretty well.
Oh shit. Do you actually have the bottle? I thought you'd get it, then send it or ... something. That bottle was only supposed to be if we hit 50k! You're the one that's finished the first draft. You should get something from me first.

Everyone else, I already wrote something about not coming to Thrillerfest, so scoot on over and have a read, then come back.
Back yet? Good.
Thing is, if I did go this year, Thrillerfest's the one for me. I've been to NY before and I have a couple of friends living there now. Not sure how I feel about the whole charity thing. I wouldn't say I was embarrassed, more flattered. I could pay for myself to go (read my blog post dammit!), but I really want a finished novel to take over.
Okay. Here's one idea: I'm working on some Crimespace t-shirts and buttons and magnets and such. Buy a bunch of them and take them to any one of the cons, stick em on people as they walk past, maybe offer them first aid afterwards. I've almost got the products ready, so I'll be announcing them soon.
