Good morning. I haven't been posting much -- not at all, actually -- lately for two simple reasons: finishing book and art projects and travelling, and frankly there isn't much going on on the site beyond self-promo and book reviews. There seems to be little discussion of real matters, those things that brought me here in the first place. Hopefully that'll change over time.
But I hope this lands in the right place. There's a terrific article in The Daily Beast today: How Chester Himes…Continue

Just a quick note for anyone going into tradpubbing, epubbing, or selfpubbing: An interview with Rob Hart on the LitReactor site (www.litreactor.com) is worth reading.

LitReact is a pretty okay site and worth checking once in a while. Lee Lamothe
