Publishing news

I found out today that my writing bud Paul Genesse sold his first book! Five Star Publishing (a small press) is publishing the first book of the Iron Dragon series called The Golden Cord. It's coming out in hardcover late 2008. This is such good news for Paul, and I'm so excited for him. Although, I have to admit ... I can't wait until the day I announce I've sold a book. Hell, at this point I'd like to sell another frickin' story. I really don't want to be a one-hit wonder.
But this is not about me. Three cheers for Paul Genesse! We can say we knew him when.

It's great, Paul getting one into the goal, isn't it? It's a big step for him, and a lot of new things to consider. I've been reading chapters and re-writes of this book/series since the world was young, it seems like. It's great to know that it can be done, if your courage holds.

I'm sorry to hear your story didn't make the cut. You'll get it to someone who likes it eventually.

Your recap of the old TV themes was a walk down memory lane. I knew a lot of those! Too much TV, I guess. We are sponges, aren't we? Picking up all this useless information.

In any case, anything that you can do to keep the rejection depression at bay is great. Talk to you later.
