I haven't been here in a while, but did want to share the good news. My book, "The Legendary Pine Barrens-New Tales From Old Haunts" was published by Plexus Publishing (www.plexuspublishing.com) and released in June. I have been doing several book signings/shows a week since, did the BEA in NYC in May, and it's all been an absolute ball. Thanks to the AW'ers who helped me with my query letter writing. I think that was the toughest part of the whole experience. Doing many more book signings/shows in the PHL/NYC area. I'd love to meet you. Stop by and say "Hi".

Congratulations on getting your book published, Cook. I'm glad you decided to come back to AW and post some self-promo with your first post back after a three/four year absence. It makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside that you would remember us in this way. Will you be participating and joining in with the community this time round? Or is the self-promo all you want to do?

Since this is the chat room forum, I gotta ask, are you planning on popping into chat? You would be most welcome. We have a great family of chatters in the chat room, who are brilliant and helpful and a lot of fun to hang around with. They would make you feel most welcome.

Read It Again - Published by Alfie Dog Fiction

Well - so one Sunday evening, there I was, writing a piece of flash fiction - sent it off into the world and the thing got published! Yippeee!!!

A little later, the publisher says, "Well, if its okay with you, I'd like to stick your little story in my antho."

So I'm like, "Tsk, well, if you insist..."

Anyway, this collection of children's stories is available on Amazon in print and as an e-book.

You can find it on the publishers site or on Amazon - so - please, Read It Again

Reviews welcomed!

While it ain't a big reason to brag, I decided to give my self-pub book "The Sub-Inactives" another go! It's the cheesiest, corniest, and bloodiest story you'll ever read! And cheapest, too.

The Sub-Inactives.
