    It's official. I'm one of six authors (and six visual artists) to be selected by Flying House. I pair up with a painter, as it turns out, and we create a collaborative piece. We'll have a release party, gallery showing and reading all in one later this year. And then there will be a nicely produced coffee table book produced, as well. Check out the website for more details. I'm honored to be a part of this excellent Chicago non-profit. Should be a lot of fun. More info to come.

    What this means:

    For six weeks this summer, I'll be at a sci-fi/fantasy creative writing workshop, where my instructors will be (one each week):

    George RR Martin
    Connie Willis (winner of 11 Hugos and 7 Nebulas!)
    Chuck Palahniuk
    Kelly Link & Gavin Grant
    Mary Rosenblum
    Hiromi Goto

    I am thrilled. I am humbled. I am intimidated. I am unbelievably excited. I have sunshine coming out of my butt.
    Wow. that's amazing, Nik. And that book, man, I let out a little bit of pee when I saw that cover.

    Considering we're sharing news. My short story collection, Quintessence of Dust, is now available to buy or download. It has a couple of horror stories in there, a bit of naughtiness and a lot of humour. PLEASE - if you're going to read this book, download it (if you have a e-reader that is) because it's FREE. I'm not in this for the money, so it makes no matter to me if you buy it or download it, but because I value readers over cash, then yes, download. If you write a review, I'll fly over and lick you.

    Here's the link for the FREE download: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/147029

    If you prefer paperback, or don't have a e-reader, here is where you can buy it: http://kuboapress.wordpress.com/current-titles-2/

    Thanks, and if you can help spread the word, I'll name by next child after you. That might be a lie, but I'll name something after you. Perhaps a banana, or sandwich.

    Don't have an e-reader, Craig (well, I do hav PC kindle app, but the books on it are, for the forseeable future, stuck there in limbo because I don't like reading books on the computer) so I ordered a copy of QoD. Looking forward to it!

    It's very true that I don't use that word often. I usually LOVE something or HATE it. Although with movies I often think they are ok and my review would generally consist of "meh" when asked. SK Books are the except I think they'll fall under my movie reviews. Such as LOVED Bag of bones, MEH To The Talisman(so far) and HATED Insomnia

    thanks, guys! I wanted to multi-quote you all and reply to each post individually but I'm finding it hard navigating around this place. Suffice it to say, I'm flattered and hope you "like" it. And if it makes the process less traumatic for you Teri, I can refrain from the licking. What if I just feed you grapes while you read Anal Twine, or Night Holds a Scythe?

    I think she would actually like it if you licked her from across the pond, Craig! If you tatooed SK on your tongue for doing so, she'd be in heaven!

    I best err on the side you hate it then, Teri.

    BTW: Stephen King this is not. In truth, there are only two horror stories in there, one which is not a typical cookie-cutter horror. Just want to let you guys know before download and/or buy. Thanks though for those willing to take a tour down the seedy and perverted avenues of my mind.

    Great job, Adam Lowe and Chris Kelso.

    Congrats on that brilliant-sounding collaborative project, Richard. And Craig, thanks very much for the download for the collection, will take advantage of it.

    Also, thanks for the kudos about my (as yet non-existent) collection, you guys. You'll be the first to know when I've got the kickstarter going.
