"Would you like to hear a story? This is a good one. And very short. This is the story and the story goes: Simon meets Janie D. at work. She tells him who hurt her. She smiles. This is love. This is rigor mortis."
My first novel, Strangeness in the Proportion, is now available in print. This makes me more than a little giddy, more than a little, "Cousin Larry, we so happy, we do the dance of joy." Why not buy a copy and share my giddiness?
If we can define power as the degree one affects the universe -- and if we agree that buying a book by a mega-popular author (say Steven King) has less effect on his universe (by degrees) than a less popular, less accomplished author -- then we can conclude that buying Strangeness may just be the most powerful purchase you make this year.
My tome received a blushingly nice review from the cool cats over at the Booked podcast.
Also did an interview with them the following week.
Not so long ago, I was somewhat worried that no one would like Simon and his scalpels and head full of undead crows and cadaver romancing. But people seem to be falling for the little weirdo. That almost feels more important to me than whether or not they liked the book. Maybe I'm just attached. We've been co-living in my head for over half a decade.
I recently ordered some business cards. I can't resist Poe references. And you should respect my addiction.
