Happy New Year


Happy New Year, Slushpile readers. I hope everyone has had a safe and fun holiday season.

In addition to the usual holiday carousing, I’ve been working on demonstrating my writeability while working on my nonfiction book, A Year of Committing Homicide.

Meanwhile, let’s all wish J.D. Salinger a happy birthday. Yesterday, while we were taking down Christmas trees and nursing hangovers, Mr. Salinger turned 90. Let’s hope his new year’s resolution is to get out of the house a bit more in 2009.

Let’s hope 2009 holds better tidings for books and the publishing industry.
