Humungo News!

An exciting development for me: I won the H.R. (Bill) Percy Novel Prize for my novel (Living in the Dirt/Drive-by Saviours) in the Atlantic Writing Competition! This is hopefully a big step toward finding a publisher.

Check out http://www.writers.ns.ca/pr25Aug08.html for details.

I will receive my prize and do a reading at a Gala Celebration of Writers and Writing Sept 27, 7 pm, at Alderney Landing Theatre in Dartmouth. It's a free event so come on out all you local folks.

Wow, that's wonderful. Congratulations. I hope this opens a bunch of doors for you. Would love to come to the reading but I probably won't make it all the way from Louisiana. Good luck with it.

Thanks Charles, and yeah, no worries about the event. Louisiana's a good place to be.

MRI: Yes, yes you did. I just always thought you meant a crack on the head. Didn't you notice how I kept flinching everytime you said it? Thanks for the hardy congrats, I'm feelin good.

We are looking forward to being there on the 27th - I always think and say how happy we are that you are now living nearby, and we can share these moments. As always, very proud of you - you work hard and deserve all the accolades.
