cross-posted from "announcements" because i'm just crazy like that...


AuthorScoop is pleased to announce the arrival of a new contributor (and old friend), Rob McCreery. Rob is a gifted poet and essayist and has served the online writing community as a labor of love for some time now as Poetry Moderator and Supermod over at the Absolute Write Water Cooler (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/).

As you can see from his initial offering (below), his keen insights make for wonderful reading.

Itís great to have you here, Rob.

Rob's excellent first piece:

Famous Old Things (http://authorscoop.com/?p=344)

Congrats to ALL of you--and have fun, Rob! :)

Outstanding news. Congrats Rob.

Shameless shout out, anybody who isn't checking out Author Scoop regularly is missing out. It's one of the first things I do in the morning.

How can so many of my favorite people occupy one blog?

AuthorScoop is a fantastic site, William. I absolutely love it. Now I have one more reason to visit AuthorScoop every day (as if I needed more reasons).

Great first post, Rob.

thanks for the kind words, everyone.

Congrats, Rob! This is the first time I've been to author scoop (don't know how I missed it) but I have it bookmarked and won't miss it again!

Way to go, Poet. I hope for the best for all three of you.

Wow. Many thanks for the big wrap, William. And thank you all for the encouragement; this should be a lot of fun. That is, if I can manage to uphold the standard. I've held William and Jamie in ultra-high regard for a long time now, and the Author Scoop reader list is full of the same sort.

It occurs to me that AW both attracts and produces a whole lot of wonderful writers and personalities. I dig you all, deluxe.

Very cool, Rob. What an amazing trio of talent at Author Scoop.

I've a lot to catch up on, since I was away taking care of my mom for the last weeks. Looking forward to it.

Nicely done, Rob. Congrats and I can't wait to see more of your writing on AuthorScoop. There are three talented people who were meant to be together.

Congratulations, Rob! (And also to William and Jamie for all the hard work you've been doing on Authorscoop.) Loved your first article "Famous Old Things" -- well-done! :)
