from the pumpkin patch

so many things i can't possibly catch them all. but here's some of what i see:

october (my favorite month) brings the new decomp (hi, barry!).

and the new elimae (hi, bones!).

it also brings christy "honeysuckle" crutchfield center stage at softblow.

and nominations. so many well deserved nominations. pushcart, best of the net, best of the web, best of the best, yo.

congrats to dorothee lang, xTx, roxane gay, eric beeny, sheldon lee compton, steve himmer, ben loory, goddamn goddamn goddamn! too many to list. congrats to everyone. you are all heroes. HEROES! and i wish you love and luck. but you're all winners already in my book (i seriously wrote a book about you all being winners).

and in greasy news, the aforementioned sheldon lee compton (who is also a best of the human race nominee) took some time out of his busy schedule to not only read my novella, but to also write a review of it. here's a sampling:

"The journey is truly the thing with this book. Destination steps aside. And when that happens, we have a man and a woman and all else is backdrop."

read sheldon's entire review HERE. wow. thanks, shel.

and lastly, there is this little thing coming up in washington, dc:

get your ass there. oh man.
