Since this is a web site for writers then I suppose I should start making entries in my blog. Perhaps I should start by introducing myself to the reader--naaah, I'm too boring for words. Michael Gruber is a better subject. If you don't know of Mr. Gruber he is an author. Unfortunately he is not on...

My book hits the shelves in one week. I'm feeling great when I'm not feeling terrified. So far the press has been incredible -- lots of attention from most of the big magazines including Elle, Nylon, O Magazine, Self, Playboy, Penthouse.

I just got another rejection note. This is my third one in a month, so I’ve got my groove on. I’ve been writing for God knows how long, and although I’ve gotten acceptances as well, rejection slips still bite.             I can’t remember my first rejection note. Wait, I do remember. It was for...
