WFC is over and John has returned. However his flight back was delayed twice, he got back so late that I haven’t heard too much about how it went. One thing he did mention was that he ran into someone from Bantam Books and they had actually heard of RDSP so that was cool. I’m always surprised when strangers know about our company, it usually feels like we’re whispering into a sewer drain telling a bunch of rats about how they could buy our books on if they knew how to use a mouse.

Apparently people were looking for Bare Bone #8 because they had seen the cover on on LJ and liked it. I was also tickled to hear that jlassen from Night Shade Books was bitter about just how special the Westermead special edition is because if he’s bitter then you know he was impressed.

I also learned that D. Harlan Wilson went to a very small college (less people than the high school John and I attended). You see John doesn’t tell me about this stuff in any kind of reasonable, ordered fashion. He just throws the stuff out there with no concern to the relevance of it at all.

Oh, he also saw Deuce Bigelow, European Gigolo at the hotel and thought it was hilarious. Thank god I was spared that indignity.


  1. sticks and stones

    I imagine you’ve been called worse! How’ve you been anyway, haven’t seen you around much lately.

  2. Re: sticks and stones

    Haha, that i have. I’m doing about as ok as it gets. Feeling a little empty and devoid of creative juice (need some serious mojo to work on my book again, parts of it are seriously messed up). Otherwise the wheels turn.

  3. …Deuce Bigelow? Have you considered…putting John…someplace? (People always call a madhouse “someplace,” don’t they?) It’s just…it seems he’s hurting you.

  4. Pretend fish

    You know I have been considering it for some time. Can you recommend ‘someplace’ nice? I’d like to send John to a facility with a pool, so he can pretend he’s a fish…

    Sharpe Hospital, it’s not too far from where I live. You and Ripley can stay with me when you come to visit. I don’t have a place for the baby though, so we may have to put him in the clothes dryer. John would be very happy. He could do that whole Brad Pitt 12 Monkeys thing. No more monkey (fishy) business!

    What kind of fish? I see him more as an algae eater (creepy) than, say, an angelfish or carp.
