Mailbox Monday!


I know. I don’t often do Mailbox Monday posts. Or an In My Mailbox post. That’s because I’ve significantly slowed down what arrives in my mailbox. I’m trying to move things OUT, not in.

However, just this morning, my trusty PO Box was stuffed to the gills. Okay, maybe one or two more could have been squished in, but four’s a pretty darn good haul!

I got…

Never Mind the Pollacks, written by Neal Pollack. It’s a Rock and Roll Novel, and will be reviewed shortly at Rocks ‘n Reads. ‘Cause, you know, I write rock and roll fiction. I gotta know the genre inside and out. This was a find.

Another find was Steven Brust’s Taltos, the next adventure for my bud Vladimir. I totally love this series. I don’t get why more people aren’t reading it. Maybe it’s Vlad’s voice. Dry, acerbic — and yet smart. That doesn’t mean Vlad doesn’t do dumb things, though — and that’s the fun of this series.

A RABCK (that’s a Random Act of BookCrossing Kindness) also showed up. Bangkok Tattoo, written by John Burdett, has been on my wishlist since July of 2005. Only 1930 books left on my wishlist to find…

I saved the best for last. It’s autographed. It’s a great story.

You see, I was keeping an eye on my Twitter stream one day before Christmas and my bud, author TJ Bennett was tweeting about buying Christmas presents. So… I pulled a Trevor. “Oh, but why are you stressing?” I asked (or something to this effect). “All you need to get ME for Christmas is your latest book.”

The Promise

So guess what showed up today? TJ Bennett‘s The Promise.

Damn. Trevor’s good.

Disclaimer shit: the buy links take you to If you should be motivated to use them, I’ll save up my take of the sale and use it to buy something I’ll turn around and give to you. If you’d like to help me financially, you’re better off to buy my books. Links are up on the left-hand side here, so click on through and get busy!

    Love the back story behind The Promise! I’ll have to store your opening volley in my memory bank for future use.

    Enjoy your books!

    Cool stuff you got! I love getting good mail. Unfortunately the last couple of days have been really sucky.
