Christopher Moore's a Fool in Love

Ok, I'll admit, I'm a bit biased because I have inducted myself in the cult of Christopher Moore, not that I had any authority to do so, but that kinda goes with the territory. And it has nothing to do with the fact that we happen to look kinda similar. (It's the gray-speckled beard.)

Anyway, whether you're a Chris Moore fan or never heard of him or somewhere in the middle, you may want to check out this interview that ran in Good Reads. I'd never heard of Good Reads before this, and I may want to check it out myself, though I don't have much time any more.

So if you like Good Reads — or even the Chris Moore interview — I'd love to have you drop a note here — and let me and other readers know what it is we're missing.

Nonfiction Writers Wanted!

If you're a writer of nonfiction who's looking to get his book idea into shape for agents, you might want to visit and join AgentQuery Connect, where a nonfiction discussion group was recently established. For those of you who are familiar with AQC, you probably know that it's primarily populated with fiction writers, but nonfiction remains the biggest segment of the publishing world and AQC recognizes that.

I don't work for AgentQuery, I'm simply an active member of that community, and while I'm there to gain insight into getting my fiction published, I'm a working journalist with ideas for several nonfiction works, so I'll be an active participant in that area too.

There simply haven't been many participants yet, so come on in and join on the ground floor of an active online community of writers. I'm sure you'll like it.
