Howard Of course, I think it's required reading for a nerd like me. I see that you were reading a little Lovecraft, did you enjoy it at all?

message 10: by Jeremy

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.


Like my granddaughters, Buffy, your hair hangs down right over your eyes.

Jeremy Thanks so much, Buffy! I really appreciate the support.

I hope you enjoy Vacation and Camp.

Jeremy :)

I thought I'd let you know that my novel “Vacation” has been nominated for the best Horror Novel for 2007 in the Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll.

In case you'd like to do me the honor of voting, here’s the website:

Also, here are some other categories where I’ve been nominated:


Short stories:

Thanks for the support!

-Jeremy :)

PS—if you do decide to vote, you should know that you need to validate the vote by clicking on the link in the email they send you.

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 Buffy!

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 so much for the kind words, Buffy, and for adding my book to your list! If you end up checking it out, I'd love to hear what you think. And I hope you enjoy it. :)

I love the Harry Potter books too. I'm only on The Order of the Phoenix, but I'm planning on reading them all.

Some of my favorites are 1984, Slaughterhouse-Five, The God of Small Things, and A Clockwork Orange.

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day full of first-rate fates, fascinating flavors, and famous fire-eating ferret faeries.

-Jeremy :)

Jeremy Thanks for the friendship, Buffy!

If you don't mind sharing--I'm curious, what's your favorite novel of all time (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:

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

-Jeremy :)

Laura Hi, Buffy--
I'm happy to be your friend too, and it is wonderful to meet another vamp lover (grin)! You have an awesome library of vampire novels. I'm reading a good one now..."Sex and the Single Vampire" by Katie MacAlister. So far I am loving every page of it! I am also a big fan of the "Blood Books" by Tanya Huff. What are some of your favorite paranormal and urban fantasy vamp novels and series?

Thanks for putting my novel "The Witches of Dixe" on your to-read list. I'm the one who is flattered now! Have you read the reviews from Goodreads people about it?

Happy reading and magickal blessings!
