so my head has been deeply under water, largely the product of turning a 60K square foot warehouse into a 60K square foot retail store...


It was a clear reminder to me of why I have ALWAYS avoided retail in the past.

The rescue dog that I was musing about several weeks ago has settled in nicely and learned the local rules. His original owners had warned me that he might "come around" when groomed -- but even this is fading as he learned that even blurried eyed humans only halfway through their coffee don't hurt you with a brush if they know what they are doing. So other than a really heavy ball habit he has learned to like it here.

I think [livejournal.com profile] matociquala might steal him someday if we don't watch out.

Anyway, I would like to make a shameless plug for a relatively new writer friend of mine, both new friend and new writer --

Jake Bell is a fellow out Arizona way that I learned of from a good friend of mine at Amazon. Or perhaps a better way to put it is he learned of me when he was job-hunting with the hydra that is Scholastic Book Fairs.

I failed at getting him "in" to our Florida headquarters (the position he was applying for got filled internally) but I got the chance to get to know him a bit in order to feel on the up and up recommending him.

Now, he has an agent and a graphic novel under what appears to be serious consideration at a couple different publishers.

You can get a glimpse of the main characters in him (hopefully) upcoming novel at http://www.ithinkmyteacherisasuperhero.com/index.html

Okay, so its a handful of a web address, but the book is a fist full of laughs from what bits I've seen.

So, if you like graphic novels, check out the character briefs, then stop by his blog at http://www.jakebell.com and leave some sarcastic musings on his blog. Or link back to either site if you are feeling generous and want to help a brother out by making him more "real" to the virtual world.

Hugs to everyone out at Cons everywhere.....
