    Thanks for checking out my blog! I like you humor.

  6. Glad to see that an accomplished, thoughtful, and practiced writer stumbled upon my writing. I’m excited to give a listen to your podcast. I’ve been wondering if there were any bloggers out there formatting their blogs into podcast form like I do.

    • Thank you for your kind words. The podcast I did some time ago has unfortunately been taken down from iTunes (because I stopped paying Libsyn). My audiobook collection of bizarro short stories is currently available for download through this blog.

    Hi, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I enjoy your blog and hope you don’t mind that I included a link to it on my post Blog-O-Rama.

  12. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my literary treatment of Austin, David (on wattpad)! How can I get you to read the whole novel? You know, I handpress each copy of Austin Nights. They feel authentic, unlike any book you’ve ever touched, probably. You can find copies at Domy, or you can order them here: It’s always a pleasure meeting other Austin writers. Keep in touch!

  13. Thanks for the enthusiastic greeting. I hope you continue to enjoy following the blog. It is good to connect to someone else who is writing and being creative. I have enjoyed seeing yours. Keep up the good work.

    David, found your site via Goodreads. Growing Up Wired sounds like a great read, will have to look it up next time I’m in the US (yeah, Kindle’s the back-up plan–I’m old-fashioned that way).

    Got a nice Kirkus Review and Clarion review for my novel Chocolate Chocolate Moons. (check it on Amazon ) Would like your opinion. May I send you a copy? If so to what address may I send it to. I have not found that many who like humor and science in one bite.

  17. Thanks for responding. All the best, JK

  18. Very nice to meet you David, as well as all the work you have produced. Much appreciation for the retweet. Along with spreading the word, it allowed me to, this time, bookmark your site.
