Said so

Assorted writing-related news…

I’m going to try to do some housecleaning here before we get over to 2011. So effking futuristic are we, no? Except for flying cars.


– My short story Hamlet was picked up by Bellevue Literary Review and should be out this Spring (here’s BLR on Facebook).

– I believe the Turkish-language rights for Couch have been sold to Domingo Publishing. So if you speak Turkish, voila!

David Naimon and I are now officially calling our co-written short story, entitled The Voyage, a book. So presumptuous! So exciting! We’re just under 20k words in.

Laura Moulton’s website is way over-due for an overhaul, which is my spousal responsibility. So in the meantime I’ll mention a few of her goings-on here:

  • She was awarded a Regional Arts & Culture Council grant for her project StreetBooks!
  • She has a great piece coming out in Street Roots soon (< That link searches for ‘Laura Moulton’ on – right now it just comes up with her Brazil article & Project Hamad)
  • Her book is coming along – (I’m currently reading the first 100 pages).

– Speaking of novels…mine is still in progress. Laura’s editing the first 75 pages which are considered to be semi-final. There are another 325 pages lying in wait of further edits. is still being coded…

I think that’s it, or all that I can remember presently. Enjoy the last few days of 2010.
