A MUST Read!

Ok all my crime fiction buffs out there. I have a short story that you absolutely have to check out. My friend Naomi wrote it and I am so incredibly proud of her. She titled it "The Winter of My Discontent." It's posted over at A Twist of Noir. And I was riveted by it. Her word choice creates an incredible setting. I felt some Daniel Woodrell, some William Faulkner, some James Lee Burke. I really recommend you check it out! I do believe she has the makings of the next big thing! :)

Congratulations Naomi! I'm so proud of you!

Eh? You mean she knows another word besides 'schmoozer?'

Okay, Jen, I still trust you.

Thank you, Jen, you really know how to give my ego a HUGE boost! Burke, Faulkner AND Woodrell. Those are some mighty powerful writers (and Burke is a great favorite of mine) and I know the comparison is so unfair to them.

Corey -- if you say nice things about my story, I'll take it back.
