"The notion that such persons are gay of heart and carefree is curiously untrue. They lead, as a matter of fact, an existence of jumpiness and apprehension. They sit on the edge of the chair of Literature. In the house of Life they have the feeling that they have never taken off their overcoats."
- James Thurber, My Life and Hard Times

It's NOT all about me!

This is a quick and dirty post today, because I believe in supporting my fellow authors, especially the good ones.

My friend and mentor, Gordon Kirkland, has released his first novel. He was a syndicated humor columnist for years, but this is first foray into fiction (according to him - his wife Diane might tell you something different). Described as a marriage between Fargo and darker parts of the Old Testament, Crossbow, is a mystery with funny overtones, or perhaps a comedy with mysterious undertones.

It is, at any rate, on sale NOW at Amazon, in both paperback and Kindle. To learn more about the book, go to Gordon's site.

To give you a little inkling as to Gordon and his sense of humor, I've included a snippet of him on a morning news show, promoting his last book, Holly Jolly Frivolity. Enjoy.

And tune in tomorrow for some flash fiction from a guest blogger!
