Work update

As planned, I wrote the synopsis for Xmas Carol yesterday. And today I wrote the cover letter. Now all I have to do is edit them to death and the book will be on its way to the publisher. I'm going to send it to Tor Books. Among horror and sci-fi publishers, I find Tor the most appealing. Here's hoping.

Fingers crossed, car is gassed up and waiting...let's go. or in baseball parlance "It's outta here!"

Well, it's almost outta here. Hey, I'm recording today's Cubs game. Unfortunately, it's against the Dodgers, who are totally boring. Still, I'll watch. Maybe "your" baseball announcers will say something that ends up in the Language of Baseball posts.

I hope it's Len and Bob. Though they don't make the Keith's great announcers list. Maybe I will have to start watching the White Sox (shudder)..well I can watch, I don't have to root for, right?

Harrelson is also crazy and seems like a rightwing nutjob. I get those vibes from him. I don't love HIM, I love the things he says. I sat Carmine down one day last summer and played a recording of one of his games, and he loved the guy, too. You ought to hear Harrelson's yell when the Sox hit a home run. But we love him for his weirdness, not his greatness. You have to see the guy in action to understand. White Sox hater, eh? Ah, well.

More fingers crossed here. I'm wishing you lots of luck and all the best with Xmas Carol.

Thanks, Carmine. With you guys pulling for me, how could I fail?

PS - I didn't miss the Big Moon rerun http://popoph.wordpress.com/

PPS Are you familiar with Leonard Cohen? Strange and wonderful singer/poet. You really have to listen to the words of his songs. I will be adding him to my poet list in the future.

PPPS I can't wait for Xmas this year!

I can picture Cohen but I think drugs blasted my memories of him to bits. You'll have to remind me on POPOPH. I see you got a photo of the moon. As for the poets, I'm tellin' ya (as we say in NY), no one is like Frost. The others seem like children next to him. And why are you looking forward to Xmas so much? I do appreciate your correct spelling of the holiday.

Looking for to Xmas - your book! duh.

I know, Frost is unbelievable, he belongs in a super poet category.

I should never ask you these questions.
