Check this out - John Hornor Jacobs is having dreams about me. Hmmm, that is odd, but not unprecedented. The week before, I had two oddly-specific author dreams. Perhaps, John can psycho-analyze me too. First, I dreamt that Daniel Woodrell, Reed Farrel Coleman and myself were wading, fully-clothed and chest deep in a swimming pool and I was listening to the two of them talk about being very jealous of Gary Phillips. The next night I dreamt I was standing in a parking lot, making bread for Matt Bell (whom I've never met). So, John, if you have any theories, please help me out.
Also, thanks to Bethany & Stacie of The Word Nerds blog for spending some time on me. An interview they conducted with me was published there this week - here's a taste:
Word Nerd: What's the best part about being a writer?
Me: All the respect. And the money.
(Read the rest of that interview right here)
But hey, if you really want to have fun, check out Scott Phillips giving as good as he gets against the Books and Booze Podcast.
Still need more? Here's a new piece called Love and Other Wounds by Jordan Harper at the Flash Fiction Offensive and here's a longer and really nicely creepy story set (parts of it) in my very own St. Louis neighborhood titled The Farmer's Market by David Schuman at Joyland Magazine.
