Cranking Up

Thanks for checking in with SURROUNDED ON THREE SIDES, a blog that has been a work-in-progress for way too long. Actually, I've felt guilty about cranking up this blog until my next book, BERMUDA SCHWARTZ, was submitted to Marc Resnick, my way-awesome editor at St. Martin's.

But B.S. is done -- say Hallelujah! I'm expecting FedEx to deliver me the copy-edited manuscript today for review. And now I figure I can fritter away a little time while I learn how this blog thang works. It can't be too hard if guys like Dusty Rhoades and Joe Konrath have learned how to do it. (I would provide a link to their sites right here, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet..)

So hang in here with me while I muddle along. I hope to be fully up-and-running by July 20 when I set out for Trinidad for research on the fourth book in the Zack Chasteen series -- TRINIDADDY-O.

Hey, I showed up just in time to be the first comment! What do I win?!

Bob said...

You win, uh, let's see ... a bottle of rum. It's a very tiny bottle of rum, but it does bear the JAMAICA ME DEAD label.

I'm not prepared for people to actually show up here yet. I've got so much more work to do to get all the kinks worked out and for it to look the way I want it to look.

But welcome anyway. And even though it's a federal offense, I will mail you the tiny little bottle of rum if you send me your surface address off-blog...

Kristy said...

:-D You can owe me the bottle. Let me know when you're ready to go live and I'll make sure I link to you under my Blog links. Oh, and you can get rid of these comments if you want to be all clean and shiny for your debut...

Bob said...

Clean and shiny just ain't my thang.

If nothing else this will prod me forward...

Kristy said...

All right, well, get off your ass then...throngs of fans are waiting.

A belated welcome to the blogsophere, mon! Pull up a stool and lets uncap some Appleton Estate.

Nice blog--I may have to link yours to mine at http://satorikick.com even though I didn't get the free booze. No worries, though, I've got my own brand handy. (Burp.)
