  1. “Where the Hell Have You Been, Dave?”  • 
    If anyone's looking at this blog anymore, you might have noticed that I haven't updated it in around two years. So where have I been and what have I been doing?
  2. How to Help Promote Your Favorite Author  • 
    We often latch on to the authors we love. We realize this is a tough business, and we don’t want them to starve. We want them fat and happy, sitting on cushions stuffed with hundred dollar bills.

  7. Book-Geekity Fun with LibraryThing  • 
    I love snooping at other people’s libraries. Whenever I’m at someone’s house, you’ll usually find me with my head tilted to one side reading book jacket spines within the first ten minutes of walking in the door. I’ve been known to walk through IKEA paying much more attention to the books on the shelves than […]
