No problem, guys!

The latest interview is now live. Michael Marshall Smith is the featured author, and he was good enough to give me an excerpt from his latest novel KILLER MOVE to go along with it.

Check it out here (http://kealanpatrick.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/the-seven-michael-marshall-smith/)!

I fully support this idea! We should make a separate thread with a voting poll to get people to support this idea as well!:)

a bit off topic: Just read your story in Shivers V and really enjoyed it. The feel of it reminded me of King's "Sometimes They Come Back". I do wonder if Ger ever caught up with Mick...

If you have not yet read Brian's ebook collection "Seven Stories" you owe it to yourself to pick it up. It is only 2.99 over at Amazon and there is not a bad story in the bunch!

Me, too. :) The plan right now is to do three little collections of 5 or 6 stories each, collected by theme. I've gotten some good friends to write introductions and sign the signature sheets, and there will be some awesome interior artwork and beautiful covers, too. I think the first collection will be announced in the next couple of months, and we'll see how it does before fully moving forward with the others.
