"Okay, 2007 couldn't have been more exciting, I had TWO books come out in the last five months!! The first was The Next Adventures of Guy ... more wackiness, a sequel to my first book published in 2006. Reviews are awesome and my Adventures of Guy series is being compared to Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers series and Christopher Moore's wacky stuff.

The second is a story in the anthology Heat of the Moment which comes out today!!! All of the stories are about fire and loss, and all proceeds go to victims of the California wild fires. Yep, ain't getting paid for this one... but it's worth it. So visit my page, or ~ Norm"
