Lost, no, not lost ... Missing

A new book.

Yeah, that's what it's all about.

I was going to blog about writing, or vampires or nose hair ... important things like that - but not today, for I have a new book out!



Well, okay, to be honest, it's not MY book, like just me. It's a collaborative work by a bunch of talented authors, including Bob Goldsborough, Luisa Buehler, trouble-maker Joe Konrath and, well okay, he's not the only troublemaker.

No, I'm not talking about me. I'm no troublemaker.


Did I mention its title?


And to be honest again ... that's getting to be a bad habit ... due to a glich, I haven't even read it yet. I couldn't get my hands on it until just this weekend. Well, I did read my story ... most of it anyway ... and I'll tell you, it's worth reading just for mine alone.

But I know a lot of the other authors, and we have award-winners and mad-style
word-meisters in the group. I'll tell you something about the book. Each of the stories is about missing persons, and we were allowed to use our characters from our own books, our own genres and ... best of all ...

...all of the profits go to charity.

You heard me, er, read me, the profits all go to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

So get yourself over to this link and get yourself a copy>>

Meanwhile, I gotta get back to reading my own copy.

You make me want to read this book, Norm! What a salesman!

Seriously, it sounds great and for a very worthwhile cause.

I'm working my way through my only copy too, Norm.

This is an awesome collection and such an important cause!

Sounds like a great book, Norn! Makes me want to read it! It's even better that it goes to a great cause!

What's 'this post has been removed by the author' thing? I didn't remove anyone's posts.

If I removed anyone by accident, shoot me, I mean, I'm sorry. Please re-post.

And yes, our own Regan Black is here. I should have mentioned more names, but I'm a cad.

Somebody probably spelled a word wrong and deleted their post. I do that all the time with my comments when they ain't perfick. ;)

Norm! Great story about an important work. If you are a pet lover, there are a few missing dog stories in here too. Norm's story is really fun, too, he doesn't lie.
As editor, I've read all the stories at least 3 times, and honestly it was great fun. I can't think of one I really didn't like in the collection.
