Dearest Slacker Nation:
How are you today?
Life has been crazy for me of late.
Freelance work is going well. Dancing with a few high profile magazines, but still too early to get excited. Editors and their deadlines rattling at my cage. No Thumbsucker to speak of, sadly. And a three day vacation (escape?) to New Jersey (New Jersey?) on Friday.
All that and I received a lovely response from Michael Simon on my previous post:
I did read a few of the Preacher comics as well as one 87th Pct. book while I was working on the Reles series.
I loved what you said about my work. I’ll be adding your blog to the top of my Links page as soon as I can remember how to do that. I never thought the words “unknown writer” would sound so flattering. And I particularly like being compared to Elmore Leonard, only more psychotic and Jewish. I don’t know if that describes me or the books, but either way, I’ll use it as a pull quote.
Many thanks, and good luck with your book.
I knew I liked the guy.
