I'm giving away a copy of Ben Tanzer's glorious new novella My Father's House. Simply email me at eddiesocko[at]gmail[dot]com with the subject line "I WANT TANZER." You can write other stuff too in the email if you want. I'll pick a winner tomorrow morning, and if that winner gets back to me quick enough with their mailing address, the book will go out tomorrow as well.
Thanks for playing, and good luck.
Update 7/30/2011: Winner chosen, contest closed. Thanks, all.
Christy Crutchfield leaves a permanent mark on The Good Men Project with an excerpt from her in-search-of-a-great-home-come-and-get-some-amazing-novel How to Catch a Coyote. Read her contribution HERE.
Also, Wild Wolves gets another nice nod, this time from the folks at Full Stop. Much appreciated.
sure things get slow in the summertime, or maybe busy, who knows, but it's always nice to take some time out to visit your friendly neighborhood OWC. there's stuff there, like book reviews and cool videos and other stuff too. it's a nice place. recently i reviewed Tiff Holland's forthcoming Rose Metal Press book Betty Supermanthere.
you should go check it out. drink lots of water. it's summertime. it's hot out there.
"Freight is the elegant, sensitive story of a man who carries things with him. Within him. Around him. And sometimes even above him. Freight is the story of every man. Or...EveryMan. Sometimes he discards things because the burden gets too heavy or because it sickens him, and sometimes he takes on too much. But he really doesn't discard all of anything. Bits of things remain for him to haul along. Things. You know these things well. They're life. Your life."
Also smashing things up is Pablo D'Stair, founder of Brown Paper Publishing and KUBOA and curator of The Predicate Dialogues. In true Pablo form, he is smashing things up free-style. Click HERE to learn more.
Lastly, I've been sending out blurb copies & thank you copies & review copies of my novel FREIGHT. Kevin Murphy of Dark Sky Magazine & Books took a great picture of my novel with his favorite toy. I just wanted to share. Because it makes me smile.
