good things slip through the closing seam

2011 is nearly over, and today two great folks offer up bouquets of kindness and generosity.

Thanks to Robert Vaughan of JMWW for putting together his Best Of list HERE, and for giving my novel Freight a tip of the cap.

Thanks also to the amazing Ethel Rohan for her kind words about my novel HERE.

If I don't catch you before the end of 2011, I'm sure I'll see you next year. Be safe out there, wherever you are, and thanks for stopping by.

triple nipple grub lure or three great lists that taste great together

We all work really hard. It's true. And so I'm humbled and honored to have my novel appear on three outstanding lists compiled by some really outstanding writers/readers/hardhat worker mothergrabbers. This little land we inhabit can be thrilling and exhausting, and today I happily collapse.

Thanks to Amber Sparks for including my novel on her Best Of list at Big Other HERE.

Thanks to the beautiful team at Dark Sky Magazine for including my novel on their Best Of list HERE.

And thanks to Mr. Jason Jordan, author and E-I-C of decomP Magazine, for giving my novel a most gracious nod HERE.

Okay, break is over. Get back to work.
