Today’s Advertisements for Myself

Out there in the world are some nice recent pieces about me and/or my latest book:

1. My local paper, the Dayton Daily News, has run a feature about me and Fuzzy Nation, with a focus on what it’s like to be a writer living in Ohio (pretty good) and if living here has had a negative impact on my career (evidently not).

2. Right before the madness that is San Diego Comic-Con, the San Diego Union Tribune chimes in on Fuzzy Nation, and has nice things to say about it, including this blurb-worthy line: “Year’s best? Yeah, one of them.” There are also reviews of 7th Sigma, The War That Came Early and that new book by a fellow, the last name of Martin. I know, never heard of him either. But let’s be encouraging to him anyway.

3. Also chiming in about Fuzzy Nation is the Seattle Times, in a book column guest-written by Duane Wilkins, who many book folks will know as the fellow in charge of the science fiction and fantasy section of the University Bookstore in Seattle. Duane’s been a huge supporter of Fuzzy and my other books, and I suspect I owe him a fruit basket in appreciation.

Enjoy the links.

Unless I misread, the SDUT article says that you once worked there – which would explain (in part) your ongoing fondness for San Diego. Just curious*: was your stint with the SDUT before or after you worked in Fresno?
* Read as “none of my beeswax,” if’n it ain’t.

#4: A couple of universes over, where John didn’t move to Ohio, he wrote both the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series.

He is also a police detective.

Weird to see Dayton Daily News articles again, now that I’ve finally escaped that city and made my way to the other side of the planet. Can’t say I miss it there. Other than being able to buy real cheese.
