To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

No Other Way

Goin' dark for a while. Went to the print on demand/FedEx/copy place yesterday and printed out the whole WIP. Took quite a while. Manuscript came in at a sizable doorstop, at least for me. Jeeze...350 pages? Scared to death, but here goes round three of slashing. No other way. My deadline is December 1st. Not much else in the pipe. Trying to build a groundswell for B'con 2012 idea...anybody know who's in charge? Because if they hire this Cleveland-based band, I promise it will be epic. Onward.
