(Insert Clever Title Here)

[Please visit for updated content]

Tumbleweeds are rolling through the desert of my mind.

Okay, that's not entirely true, but it sounds nice.

It is a bit quiet here on the porch, though. I finally received a rejection from an agent who had requested a partial submission of CROWLEY'S NIGHTMARE back in March. Even though I had written that one off a few months ago, it's still nice to have some closure. My short story PAINTED has been submitted for a contest. Some of you may remember A REQUIEM FOR THE UNNAMED from my reading at the "Up From The Underground" art show back in June; a revised version of that story is awaiting response from a well-known digital distributor. I've completed my partial submission of BOX 32 for a huge novella contest, and started revising a ghost story for possible inclusion in a 2011 anthology. Oh, and there's that pesky MFA thesis that is ongoing, ongoing, ongoing.

Huh. Guess it's not too quiet, after all.
