I promised to post more during this period of time, but…stuff got away from me. On the publishing news front, I've managed to place poems in four journals over these last few months, Plumb, Ginosko, BEAT to a PULP amd FRiGG. I'll also have another Kraj story in Mystery Tribune coming up soon, and another in Goliad Review this fall.
I'll be at Bouchercon in the fall too, late October, early November, so look me up or drop me a note via social media beforehand. I'd like to get together, as I don't get to mingle very often. That's about all for now.
Rusty: Over the past several years, I’ve picked up a couple of books of yours at a holiday gift market in Buffalo. While I’m supposed to be buying Christmas gifts, I inevitably get some items for myself! This last December, I picked up your short story collection “Mostly Redneck,” and just finished it.
Wow. There are so many great things in this collection, I’ve couldn’t help but drop you a line to say thank you and congratulations.
FYI, my favorites are probably the Song and Jimmy stories.
Keep up the great work. Hope 2020 finds you happy, healthy and creative.
Rusty, see you at Bouchercon. Look forward to meeting you. I'll be the guy in the corner, but acting like I'm talking on the phone to somebody very, very important. You know, like an agent or something. — Jim
