I took my ten-year-old daughter to the Bloomington, Illinois, Barnes and Noble today so that she could use her hard-earned money to buy a Hermione Granger replica wand. I live in Bloomington-Normal and actually did a signing at this store recently, so I thought I’d take a look in the science fiction section just to … you know.
First all, imagine my joy when I saw several copies of Andropiasitting on my local Barnes and Noble’s bookshelf. That was pretty cool.
Then, to make it even better, I saw one of my literary heroes–Neil Gaiman–on the shelf below me. To see my book in proximity to his work … it gave me chills.
Of course, while Neil Gaiman seems incredibly polite and genuinely kind, I’m sure his excitement regarding this occasion would not match mine. I’m definitely getting the better deal out of all this.
Take a look at the picture below. Cool, right?
By the way, my daughter was not impressed by any of this.
Ah, to be humbled.

You may have noticed that I’ve been writing quite a bit on my website of late. Though I’m not quite publishing daily, I’ve been awfully close to doing so for the last month. I committed to writing more editorials awhile back, and I’m fairly pleased with my output. Although I’m not writing as bravely as I would like, I’ve tackled a few topics that required a bit of courage on my part. Best of all? Those particular articles were received well.
However, this does not mean that I’ve quit writing fiction. I’ve taken a break from writing new short stories because I’ve had a project that’s been occupying my time since last November. It’s still got several months of revision to go, and, honestly, it may never see the light of day, but it’s an exciting endeavor that’s providing me great pleasure. It’s something I’ve never done before, so there’s also a bit of a learning curve with it.
I really don’t want to talk too much about it for fear of jinxing everything. I’m superstitious like that. Not to worry, though–I’m still writing fiction!

Stuck inside on this snowy day? Let me help with that! I would love it if you downloaded my e-book series entitled Dr. Nekros. Each installment is only ninety-nine cents. That’s almost five hundred pages of writing for less than three dollars! It’s available on both the Nook and the Kindle–remember, these are free apps on your phone. Trust me, at first you’ll love to hate the good doctor, but in the end, you’ll hate to love him.
Don’t have time for an entire book? No worries–I understand. I also have many, many short stories available for your Nook and Kindle as well. Though I write in a variety of genres, they all focus on that which we all have in common–our humanity. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry, some will make you think, and others will make you hide under the covers. I promise you, though, each will entertain. They are also only ninety-nine cents each.
