Great news -- I got my novella, Dead Boy, Live Girl picked up by Storylandia Press! I'll keep you posted on all the details. You will be able to purchase it as both a print and e-book. Thank you all for the support while writing it (you've seen teasers on the blog) and a big thanks to editor Ginger Mayerson for saying yes to it! My computer's name is Severin, and she is my faithful servant (Velvet Underground reference to Venus In Furs) for delivering the good news.
I'm in the process of returning to my regular writing/reading habits (starting with the Iggy Pop biography, Open Up and Bleed), and will be back each day with whatever flotsam I managed to gather from my feeble mind. For now, I will leave you with the fun stuff over the holidays -- watching Dexter for the first time (enjoyed the entire first season with my dearest Ang), catching up on old Soul Trains (my favorite show as a kid), and in the words of the great Don Cornelius, wishing you peace, love, and soul for the new year. See you tomorrow!

Instead of more yummy cocktails for you gremlins, I will be sharing health tips this week as a detox from the delights of the month of December. December is the month where I relax on all dietary concerns and do another plan, one titled Whatever the fuck I want to eat/drink is okay. I like the plan, but alas, the plan doesn't like me as much as I do it so here's the first tip. For an effective body detox, freeze cod liver oil pills. Take one in the morning and one at night. The freezing works as a time release, allowing the pills to get to your lower small intestine and clean out your system. No worries -- this is not some nasty harsh cleanse, but something you can do every single day to improve your overall health. If you have any afflictions or just want to feel better and have more energy, this works better than a voodoo charm. The pills are cheap and can be found at any health food/ larger grocery store.
