Final name of my manuscript

Parker has accepted my final manuscript for my book. And chose the name "Vampire of God". Which was my first choice, but Parker wanted Immortal Quest (didn't like it, sounded like a video game) at first. I'm glad they changed their mind, Vampire of God is really the story in a nutshell. It's scheduled for publication Feb '08.

Don Imus Fired. Whoa!

This week Don Imus got fired. Deservedly so. The only thing I have a problem with is the coverage. I think the days after 9/11 MAY have had more coverage. We are stuck in a quagmire inept war. It got pushed to the back page because of a half werewolf like Imus.

World Horror Convention 2007, Toronto

Two weeks ago, I went to my first WHC. It was fun. I love being around aspiring writers. In my full time job as a Financial System consultant I rarely encounter people who stretch their imagination beyond the spreadsheet. My editor, Chesya B., told me about it four weeks ago and I bought a ticket to fly there on a spur of the moment. The best thing I learned about it was how important it is to get your face out in the public if you're going to be a successful published writer. And the best thing about it, my Nigerian friend goes to school in Toronto, so I had a place to crash. Toronto is a great city, but to cold. The end of March and still cold as $%^&!
At the convention I got great ideas on how to prompt my book. I plan to make cards, post book covers and just get my face seen.

This is my first blog. Soon to be followed by other rants. :-)
