Hello world!

August 18, 2009

Welcome to my blog, which I plan to use for many purposes, including random rants and rambling, but my primary purpose here is to introduce myself as a writer and showcase (a euphemism for “shamelessly promote”) my writing. 

My first book of short stories, Rapture Practice, has just been released. Copies are available at http://www.mainstreetrag.com/store/MSRFiction.php  The book is also available through Barnes & Noble Online and Amazon.com, and at select bookstores nationwide.

I will be announcing public readings and book signings as their dates approach One of these will be a reading and signing on September 28, 2009 at 7:30 at the Hub-Bub Showroom in Spartanburg, South Carolina. You can check out the Showroom and its “Hub Culture” at http://www.hub-bub.com

By the way, I was at The Showroom last night for a fiction reading by Brian Ray, whose new novel Through the Pale Door won the South Carolina First Novel Prize. I was so impressed I bought a copy with money I don’t really have (good literature  does that to me–otherwise I’m pretty frugal) and I can’t wait to read it. 

If you love good literature as much as I do, please help it survive by supporting emerging writers. Thanks for reading. More soon, 

Sam
