The year is winding down, most New York publishers are working under “No Buy” orders, and I don’t have much in the way of news, so today I’ll be playing general catch up.
Have you looked at The Bookstore lately?Â Sure. it might be tough to find a copy of Just Like Hell these days, but there are plenty of copies of Drive, A Trip to Rundberg, Brian Keene’s FEAR, Bits of the Dead, Tales of the Mountain State 2 and The Dead Walk Again available.Â Really, you could do worse for your Christmas shopping.
Did you know I’m on twitter now?Â Just check out www.twitter.com/natesouthard and you too can watch me whine about how miserable I am at all hours.Â I’m also on facebook and myspace, for those who feel like running a quick search.
It occurs to me that subtitle might be more creepy than clever.Â Oh, well.
The last week or so was spent knocking out a trio of new short stories.Â Two of them should have homes ready and waiting, and I know where the last is going first went it starts making the submission rounds.Â Maybe it’s early, but all three feel like a strong step forward in my writing.
This week, I’ll start the second draft of a crime novel that needs to be fleshed out a bit.Â There’s a good skeleton there, but it needs a little muscle.
And that’s about all the news I can think of.Â Hopefully, I’ll come back later in the week with something fun.
