Another graveyard photograph on which I based these lines for Dark and Disorderly:
The lots in this part of the cemetery ignored the tidy rectangles in the newer section on the flat field below the hill. So I found myself muttering "sorry" under my breath as, by necessity, I ducked under bushes and trod on resting places and sunken slabs to take a quick catelogue of names as I spiraled the pit...
Thank you so much, those of you who took the time, which is always in short--sometimes desperately short--supply, to visit the Carina Press blog and/or leave supportive comments on my debut posts as a Carina author!
And the latest issue of ElectricSpec, that e-magazine of "shockingly good works of science, fiction, fantasy and the macabre,"contains an interview with me by editor Betsy Dornbusch, aka, Sex Scenes at Starbucks. My very first interview as a soon-to-be-published-for realz-novelist!

The Ello Basket of Goodies:
Besides a large package of large and individually wrapped Choco-Pies, Ello sent me a package of Shin Ramyun gourmet spicy noodle soup and one of Sapporo Ichiban soup.
And the squid. Wild squid. Shredded into ivory, noodle-like strips.Smells of fish, lobster, shrimp, of the sea. Chewy. Tastes a bit like smoked herring, but milder. A handful makes a nice snack.
And that's the lot, and it was lovely.
