First of all, profound thanks to all who came out to Liberty Station Nov. 11 for the "Wine and Sign" for "There and Back Again." I really appreciate it. If I may ask another favor, not only of you good people but of everyone who's purchased and read the book, please post your comments/reviews on the amazon.com purchase-site for "There and Back Again." I look forward to your feedback!
In the meantime, I am hard at work -- well, at least as hard as I can be given the responsibilities (most of them related to grading) of the remaining semesters at SDSU and Mesa College -- on my next novel, for now titled "In Violet." Briefly, it follows the plight of a would-be Hollywood screenwriter whose obsessive project is a Marion Crane-oriented "prequel" to "Psycho."
But before that book is complete, I hope to publish under my little-used literary pseudonym Barrett McCloud a short-story anthology titled "Raining in Paradise."
Thank you for your interest and your support, friends!
