Kindle Scout Campaign Starts!

Amazon has posted the Kindle Scout page for Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead!  It has a nice chunk of an excerpt from the book, a goofy picture of me, and a short interview with me.  It can be found at  If you like what you read, then please vote for it, so they will publish it.

Frequently Asked Questions About Frequently Asked Questions About Being Dead

Last year, I announced that I had a new novel finished.  Unlike my first two, I did not serialize it before publishing it in its entirety.  I want to explore some other publishing options.  I have sent it out to a few literary agents.  I even applied for a grant.  The latest news is that I have entered it in some Amazon Kindle contest where readers vote on novels they would like to read and Amazon will publish them itself.  So the publication of the novel is in the works.  You might see it as early as this year, and, provided I am still living and the creek doesn't rise blah blah blah, only as late as 2017.  In the meantime, you can read a big chunk of the beginning, about 12 pages or so, once Amazon posts it in their contest, which I think is tomorrow.  I'll announce it here once it is live.  Please feel free to vote for it and any other novels that you want to read.

Go Back To School Like It Is 1982!

With the depressing and dismal antics of another presidential election looming, you may find yourself nostalgic for the innocence of an earlier time.  If so, transport yourself back there, at least for lunchtime, with one of these fine vintage lunchboxes.  And don't forget a drink (though you may need something stronger than milk as the election season moans on)!
