Learning to blog without putting an eye out
Went out blogging on invitation spots, but I was actually invited on some. They asked me to come by, then dumped me...sniff, by not making me a friend. Well, I'll just take my books and go home.This has been one of those days. Working on screenplay revisions and beginning first day of teaching screenplay writing at SFA, and now trying to keep up with this blog. I like people, so it's fun, but to be honest, I see it as a tool to let people know about my work. Honest as I can get. Hey, folks, trying to sell books here. Anyway, once again, end of this month, VANILLA RIDE from Knopf. For those who are fans of Hap and Leonard, I think this may be the best in the series, or damn close. Check it out. For those who want to sample my short stories, which are what I prefer writing over everything else, check out SANCTIFIED AND CHICKEN FRIED, THE PORTABLE LANSDALE from The University of Texas Press. I understand they're moving fast.And so I retreat back into my lair to...well, probably read comic books. I'm really into those old DC ARCHIVES book, and the new Grand Morrison BATMAN AND ROBIN.
