Keeping an old promise

So I climbed into the attic and rooted around in the plastic tote that has all my old newspaper clippings from back in the day when I used to keep all my old newspaper clippings, and I found this, the story of the A-OK, which inspired the description of The Centennial Man's home in Welcome to the Dawning of a New Century. I hope by following the link you're able to read the story and see the photo reproduced large enough. Let me know if you aren't.
More old promises yet to be kept, soon to be made good. Hope Thanksgiving was good for you, and the holidays ahead will be happy ones.

About time, eh?

1) So what if you've got our books? Come get another one! You loved it so much you need to give one -- or three! -- as a gift, right? Right? Lynn Wallace, Michael Lister and I will be signing our novels and whatever else we can sign at Books-A-Million in Panama City on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 1 or 2 or until the last customer runs screaming from the store. Nathan will continue his tradition of having something else to do on my signing days by being at the Florida Theatre Competition in Lakeland, trying his best to win a full-ride scholarship to college. Wish us both luck.

2) Constant Vigilance, the first addendum to Welcome to the Dawning of a New Century, a short story that originally appeared in Postcards from Pottersville Volume II, is now available on the Web at Sunshine and Crime.

3) Someone (I have recently discovered who) placed a reader review of ...New Century at Barnes and Thank you very much. None of the rest of you love me as much as she does. But if you could love me ALMOST as much if you were the second or third or fourth to put up a review...(wink wink, nudge nudge).

4) My next major entry will be a review of prior entries and an attempt to actually do what I've promised to to do in the past. If I said I was going to post something or explain something, then you're going to see it at long last. Keep your eyes peeled.
