Just a quick note to let you know that a couple cool things happened on my blog over the past couple days.
First, Jenna, who reviews books on her blog, The Hive, has honored "The Man Who Does Not Exist," with a One Lovely Blog Award.
Jenna writes, "I really enjoy your description. It really comes alive when you read it."
Jenna's most recent book review is of "A Thousand Splendid Suns," by Khaled Hosseini, the celebrated author of "The Kite Runner."
Even more significant, over on twitter, Noveltweets, recommended that her more than 3,000 followers read "The Man Who Does Not Exist," calling it "Poetic romance."
This is an especially inspiring recommendation as Noveltweets is written by Kristin Callendar. Not only does Kristin tweet, but she's also the author of, "The Truth Lies in the Dark."
Rome wasn't built in a day, so maybe I'm starting to get a little traction. Thanks for all the help and support!

Hey guys -- Beth Fish Reads (http://bfishreads.blogspot.com/2009/04/publishing-and-twitter-good-mix.html) tackled whether or not a tweeted novel is a good thing. Please check out her post and please comment (bad/good, I don't care). Also, for those of you on twitter, please retweet her blog post or tweet about it. Going to email you this too. Thanks.
I admit I'm way behind on seeing this video. It got a lot of attention a couple years ago. Regardless, if you haven't seen it, it's well worth the four minutes. Who would think a white guy doing a silly dance could be so inspiring? (Josh we should have thought of this.)

We celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary Dinner at Sydney Street Cafe. We had never been there before, but since we had a fabulous gift certificate, we thought this the perfect opportunity. (Thanks Josh & Rachel). Look at some of the yummy food we enjoyed. We highly recommend the blue cheese tarts (and the restaurant!).
