One of the best things I’ve discovered about writers is how supportive they are of each other. In a cynical modern world, it’s nice to know we can find like-minded souls who understand our pain and joy. Writing can be a lonely occupation, just us and our keyboards and the voices that fill our heads. Some of us are lucky enough to have critique groups to provide us a support system close to home. The surprise for me has been the support of relative strangers; editors, writers, and others that I meet as the result of writing and publishing.
One of the people I’ve met in this journey – not literally but in cyberspace – is Richard Thomas. He’s a wonderful writer and editor who has the distinction of writing one of the nicest rejection letters I’ve ever received. It’s been nice to see his success as his book sold, and he’s experienced that high we all wait to achieve. Transubstantiate (Otherworld Publications) is a neo-noir, speculative thriller debuting 7.1.10. Congratulations, Richard. I can’t wait to read it.
