And xTx, super nice lady and curator of Zombie Summer, was kind enough to run my kooky contribution today. Supah thanks, lady X.

....and did you know that my novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom is only $7? It's a steal, people. Well, almost. But $7? C'mon! You find me a better deal and I'll shake your hand. And maybe I'll send you a free copy of Grease.
