Mark, Shut The F&*$ Up!

January 12, 2009
If ever there was a career that induced--yes, INDUCED--bipolar disorder, it's fiction writing.

I just got off the phone with my agent. We've had an offer for the third and forth Derek Stillwater novels, at this point in time titled ANGELS FALLING and THE VALLEY OF SHADOWS.

I will have more details after the contracts are signed.

So, except for the furry happy monsters, you need to realize that I am, above all else, full o' shinola.

Wow!!! Congrats! Awesome news!

Also, my friend Stephanie read Eric Orloff's book recently. She sent me the link to her blog, and I recognized her from her avitar on your blog. Small world.

And love REM + muppets.

Fantastic news!
I think that Novel Writing may be one of the top ten indicators of bipolarity.

That's AWESOME! Congratulations!

When you're done with them, can you send the happy monsters over here?

They're on their way.

And thanks everyone.

It's Erica Orloff. She writes a variety of things under different names, too.

Great news Mark. The way you've continued to write in spite of everything you've had to put with, you really deserve it.

I'm dying to know which publisher.
