Karen Lillis has been running a great set of small press book recommendations for holiday gifts on her blog. I finish off the series with my picks. Thanks, Karen! And thanks to all the giant readers of the small press! Happy 2011!

Peer To Peer Proofing

The serialization of Blog Love Omega Glee will be up for as long as I can leave it, but I am working on collecting the novel and once that happens (say when my publisher demands that the book can't be available online for free) the serialized version may disappear. So enjoy it while you can and consider it my Christmas gift to you. If you want to return the favor, then if you spot a typo or anything else seemingly wrong anywhere in the novel, then please feel free to leave a comment on that chapter alerting me to it. There is a lot of wordplay so some goofy uses of language may be intentional (such as the previous sentence having two if thens), along with some strange subtle plotting, but I'd still appreciate anyone pointing out anything that seems to have gone awry. I won't be changing the serialized chapters, but I'll try to fix anything that needs to be fixed in the collected version of the novel. Grazie!

Emus In The News: Emu Escapes In Rhode Island

In yet another installment of the occasional WredFright.Com feature, an emu has made the news yet again. This time, one of the big birds escaped in Rhode Island and tried to run back to Australia. It was unsuccessful and was caught and returned to the farm from which it escaped, but it had a nice two days on the lam. See what the AP has to say about it. Have I mentioned lately that my novel The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus makes a fine stocking stuffer? And, unlike a real emu, the book can fit in a stocking. Have a cool Yule!
