A Small Bookish Announcement

This thing on? Good. *Ahem*

via Publisher's Marketplace:
Stephen Blackmoore's CITY OF THE LOST, set in Los Angeles in which an enforcer is murdered and brought back to a twisted half-life only to find himself stuck in the middle of a 400-year-old battle for an ancient stone with the power to grant immortality, and DEAD THINGS, to Betsy Wollheim at Daw, by Allan Guthrie at Jenny Brown Associates (World).
Yes, boys and girls, I gots me a book deal. Two, in fact.

More correctly, The Amazing and Talented Mr. Guthrie got me a two book deal.

We now return you to your previously scheduled stories of dead porn stars, drive-by shootings and domestic disturbances, large and small.

That is all.
