I have taken down my novel -- FINDING RITA (formerly known as THE WHOLE CLOVE DIET) -- as I needed to get back to my writing. The feedback I have received from Authonomites will be very useful and I thank you all for it.
I will be around from time to time to throw flames on fires or start new ones, as well as to indulge in the usual shameless self-promotion if I ever have anything to promote. In the meantime, you can find me through my websites, and especially my blog site, The Militant Writer at WordPress (link below), where I invite feedback on my opinion pieces (aka rants) about writing and publishing.
I have published two novels (THE WOMAN UPSTAIRS and BITTERS) with NeWest Press and COOL a collection of short stories (River Books). My first book of nonfiction (Write An Effective Funding Application: A Guide for Researchers and Scholars) has just been published by The Johns Hopkins University Press.
2666 (new favourite), The Book of Dave, Midnight's Children, Possession, Animal Dreams, Sacred Games, The Road, Netherland, In Search of Lost Time, Gilead, The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, many many others. See my book review blog for details.
