Even though I've only written one book, now long out of print, it was a labour of love.

My focus has always been on the work of rather than necessarily writing about it. So I'm better known as someone who has worked on co-operative projects over these past 30-something years.

Even The 'Pillar of Isis' was built up from a correspondence course I had written in the mid-80s for 'The Fellowship of Isis' even though those aspects were down-played at my Editor's suggestion and she was quite right.

I have also contributed to a number of essay collections edited by friends and colleagues.

While I'd never say never to writing another unique work again; I have plenty of dear friends who are excellent at writing and we have always worked in co-operation n

While this was an ok read I did feel it was a strange book for the Man Booker short-list.

The focus felt too narrow and the narrative left too many unanswered questions. So not likely to top my list.

Lisette Brodey Hi Vivienne:

Thanks for connecting with me on GR!

Happy New Year!

Best,
Lisette


Savannah Vivienne, thank you for the friendship.
Stay naughty,
Savannah

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

-Jeremy


Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

-Jeremy :)

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Jeremy Hi Vivienne!

Here’s wishing you a yippee-filled Yuletime overflowing with yard-long yams, yapping yoyo-yanking yetis, yak-milk yeast-cakes, and yellow yarn-yielding year-end yard-gnomes.

-Jeremy :)


Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Vivienne!

If you don't mind sharing--I'm curious, what's your favorite novel(if you have one)?

Also, I was wondering if you'd do me the honor of reading about my debut novel, Vacation. Your support would mean a lot to me. If you'd like to do me this honor, feel free to click here:
http://www.hauntedhousedressing.com/v...

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous fates, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

-Jeremy :)
