Amazon contest

This just in: A Gift for Sultan is one of the 1,000 general fiction titles that made it past the first winnowing of entries to the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award. This may not mean anything in the longer run, but at least I'm still in the contest.

Congratulations, Geoff, not only for making the first cut, but for your imaginative and pioneering resolve to seize the means of production and make self-publishing viable, effective, and victorious!

Hasta la victoria siempre!

Thanks, Charlie. I was just reflecting that I have two advantages over Hemingway: First, I'm still alive, and second, I have not been corrupted by what he called the bitch goddess, Success. She does look attractive, though. I could be seduced, if she'd only look my way.

And what's happening with 'Gates of Eden'? It deserves a wide readership.
