Jeffery Anderson | 165 comments Ok - I didn't 'exactly' make the Wall Street Journal.

But a short review I got in a New Jersey newspaper showed up on their site.

It didn't do a lick for my sales, but it was still a kind of cool thing to find.

Jeffery Anderson | 165 comments Thank you, Lynne and Big-J.

I need to apologize, though. I thought that I had posted this in the self promo section. I obviously did something wrong, since it is showing up in a general category. Didn't mean for that to happen. Moderators feel free to move it.

Hi Jeff -

No biggie. Got it moved over here for you. When creating a new post it'll default to the "General" folder unless you tell it otherwise. If you specify the correct folder, and then create your message, just double check that the correct folder is still showing. It's changed it on me a few times. Damn gremlins. :)

Wow! Thank you, Michael. I am honored.

I would love to know what you think. Email me or post your thoughts here, if you can. I'd love to get your feedback.

Jeff -

What issue? I'll be on the look-out for it and if I see it, I'll pick up a copy!

Sadly, I don't normally read the WSJ. The last time I tried (you'll get a kick out of this) was about ten years ago when a friend and I went to pick up another friend at the airport and we discovered we were early. So we went to get a magazine or something. Since it was at odd hours (super late at night) all those damn little news stands were closed. The normal newspaper bins were empty as well. The one that wasn't? The WSJ. So we bought a copy. My friend rifled through it and said, and I quote, "Where's the sports section?"

My response wasn't much better. "Where's the comics?"

*sigh* Can't say that I've really changed since them. :)

Michael Juge (underdogwriter) | 12 comments Will do. I love the themes you're exploring in Ephemora, so I look forward to reading it.

Big J - Michael was talking about buying a copy of the book. The New Jersey review did not make the print, only the online.

LOL! at your airport story, though. I've been there at those weird hours. Airports are the perfect places for a good story. Everyone who flies has good airport stories. I think it is because everyone is outside of their element and has no control over what happens while they are there. It's sort of a survival situation where one tries to make one's self as comfortable and normal as possible, but obstacles always arise.
