I just posted an interview with Borislava Borissova, all the way from Bulgaria. I’ve been to a fair number of Eastern European countries (Latvia, Hungary, Czechoslovakia before it split, and Rumania), but I’ve never been there. I’d love to visit, particularly the Black Sea area.
I just received a very nice review of The Hawk And His Boy on the book review site Universe In Words. I had forgotten I’d sent the manuscript for review, so this was an excellent surprise.
I just finished up an interview with André Jute. It’s a fascinating and thought-provoking look at yet another indie author. André doesn’t exactly fit the typical mold of indie authors, of course, but I’ll let you discover that for yourself.
I just did an interview with indie author Nell Gavin. You can read it here. Nell went to the same high school as Dan Castellaneta and Ernest Hemingway. I have to admit that I’m totally impressed by the Castellaneta connection. If you don’t know who he is, all I can say is “d’oh!” As for Hemingway, who’s he?
Well, Mark Helprin wrote A Winter’s Tale (excellent book), but all I can manage is this post. A winter’s day in California? What does that entail, you might ask, while the rest of the nation is turning into an ice cube?

Even though California is almost completely populated by crazy people, it still does have a few positives.
