So, a little more than a year ago the complete, collected, and re-edited Best Picture Project appeared in book form. It sold like gangbusters, which is to say, it barely sold at all. But, I don’t necessarily write to be paid, I write to give me joy, and so if anybody bought it and enjoyed it, great!
And then I was notified of a comment on a post on this site — to the post regarding The Sound of Music, a Best Picture Project entry. The comment? Apparantly I forgot to include The Sound of Music in the book. It took about two minutes for me to confirm that, yes, I did forget it.
Well, you’ll be pleased to know that everything should be fixed now. I revised the Kindle version of the book right quick and you should be able to get that one now. The paperback version has also been corrected but that might take a couple days for all the kinks to work out between the old version and the new.
Nevertheless, feel free to purchase now and, as before — if you find an error in it, let me know, because I fix that shit.
Ah, here we are at the time of year when the good people of the world start throwing around shitloads of money on gifts to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Or, because we grew up in a culture that values yearly gift giving. So if you are one of those people, but don’t quite know what to get for that special someone, maybe tried spending your hard-earned cash on something I wrote.
I know you only have one week remaining to get your pre-order in for The Best Picture Project book, but that doesn’t mean you actually have to wait until the last minute — get it now!
Hello, cherished readers. As followers of this blog, you are no doubt aware of the long-running The Best Picture Project, a semi-regular series exploring every Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards from the beginning, through today. Well, if you were wondering if there was a way you could have The Best Picture Project in book form — well, you can! Set for release on November 17, 2017, will be The Best Picture Project. Featuring complete re-edited content, and together for the first time ever in one place, you can pre-order the book now for the Kindle, for the low-low price of $3.99. What a steal! And if you’re a member of Amazon Prime or Unlimited, you won’t even have to pay that!
And wait — if you’re one who prefers their media to take physical form, there will be a paperback version available as well. Unfortunately, that version cannot be pre-ordered, for reasons completely unknown to me. But never fear, come November 17, 2016, you will be able to order your own copy.
Loyal readers might have heard me mention my latest book, Hot Water Cold, at least one time already. Well, now it’s available. Sort of. To get any bit of it you have to go to the Kindle Scout page and peruse the sample and nominate it for publication. If chosen, I get paid.
You want to help me get paid, right?
If you wanted, you could go ahead and go here or here to buy my other work.
I am a writer – of novels, short stories, essays, this blog, girls soccer recaps for the online version of my local paper and, occasionally, grocery lists.
To be fair, I don’t earn income as a writer – not really – which is why I’m an attorney by day. But just because I make little money at writing doesn’t mean I’m not a writer. After all, hardly anybody makes a living as an artist of any type, so if income is the dividing line between ‘writer’ and ‘not writer,’ as opposed to metrics like ‘I write’ or ‘I don’t write’, I guess John Kennedy Toole and Emily Dickinson weren’t real writers because they earned no income from writing in their lifetime.

All right, so here’s the cover for my latest book. There isn’t quite a timetable yet on a release date — still have to write a blurb and coordinate other stuff — but as always, I will let you know when I have it.
To see the evolution of the cover, you should look at the pics on my Facebook page and especially my comments on them. It’s a little clearer why I chose this over other, abandoned ideas.
In the meantime, follow the Best Picture Project. Or, go here and buy my other stuff — my advice, buy Goliath. You won’t be sorry.
