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.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

message 9: by Winna

Winna Hello Jeremy, thanks for adding me. Wish you all the best with your book.

Mbak Nuke, Banana Yoshimoto punya 7 buku, semuanya rata-rata spiritual dan model semacam chick-lit tapi genrenya lebih gelap, malah menurutku cenderung ke aneh. Cerita bervariasi, biasa naratornya itu wanita muda umur 20an tahun, yang punya pengalaman spiritual (misalnya kehilangan suara trus muncul lagi, ketemu hantu, bisa melihat orang dari masa lalu, dan lain-lain). Biasa ceritanya itu tentang kematian orang terdekat atau kehilangan :)



Jeremy Thanks for the goodreads friendship, Winna!

Here’s wishing you a nifty new 2008 filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

I thought I'd let you know that my novel “Vacation” has been nominated for the best Horror Novel of 2007 in the Preditors & Editors Readers' Poll. So far it's ranked 3rd.

In case you're interested in voting (today's the last day to vote), feel free to visit the website by clicking here:

Thanks again!

"Shipp's clear, insistant voice pulls you down into the rabbit hole and doesn't let go."
--Jack Ketchum

"[Vacation] is an intriguing, challenging, literate, provocative novel I'm not sure I understand and suspect I'm not meant to… I recommend it to those who find reality boring; it may make them see it in new ways."
—Piers Anthony
