Back in the gutter again

At least I hope.

Matt Louis, publisher and editor of Out of the Gutter magazine, has a new venture called Gutter Books. Mr. Louis hopes to expand beyond his hardcore pulp journal into publishing books, particularly crime fiction. Sounds good to me. I've published two short stories--both in Out of the Gutter--so you can understand my fondness for all things gutter (scroll down to the bottom of the blog). Matt asked me if I would help out Gutter Books by contributing to the blog on the website, and doing stuff like advance reading and perhaps some editing. How could I say no? Not only that, he says he'd like me to turn one of my short stories into a novel and submit it for publication!

Ann Landers is reputed to have said "Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them."

I'll have to start working my ass off pretty soon.

Good news, Mark! Sounds like a great fit.
