Chasing Smoke

From Publisher's Marketplace:

"Lost Dog author Bill Cameron's CHASING SMOKE, in which the hero finds himself investigating four suspicious 'suicides' of men linked only by their doctor, who is also the hero's doctor while he struggles to recover from cancer, to Ben Leroy at Bleak House, in a nice deal, for publication in September 2008, by Janet Reid at FinePrint Literary Management."

Bill's so cool.

So's his agent.

My kids latest favorite book

The Sisters Grimm by Michael Buckley. Sent to them by my beauteous agent in an obvious attempt to foster lying, scamming, and diversionary tactics among the members of my family. Because that's what we are all resorting to in an effort to get a little uninterrupted read time on this thing. It's inventive, snappy and funny. Really, really funny. And y'all know how much I like funny.

'Scuse me. Gotta go. My boy just jumped up to grab his microwave mac and cheese before it bubbles over. He left the book at his chair.


It's mine.

Because most of us with Attention Deficit Disorder can't remember what we ate for breakfast much less what happened three decades ago.

What would you do if I sang out of tune?

Well, that's not quite true. You need groceries and clothes and rent money and the six hundred pencils that your kid manages to lose from his or her school supplies every six days or so and health insurance and all kinds of other weird little and not so little things that keep body and soul together.

So I'll send you HERE and HERE and let you count your blessings from there.
