My novel Bullshit Rodeo will be available from Epic Rites Press in July 2013.
These spastic babies in my brain are dying to be born.
The book I return to most often is Scary Kisses by Brad Gooch. Lucy and Todd are my favorite literary couple. The way they love each other makes my idiot heart sing.
Thanks for everything Misti. Appreciate the comment about 'I don't Wanna Not Know You' I'm the kind of guy that loves criticism, thanks for yours. Helps me a great deal!
Hey Misti--I'm glad you found my "Songs of Townes Van Zandt" story and that it worked for you. I'm a big fan of your work.
Thanks for your Werewolf enthusiasm.

Hi MRL-- Thanks for your response to Lex Talionis. We Texas girls have deep reservoirs of angst, don't we?
Hello, Misti. What's up?
Your recently posted poem, FRED, AGAIN, really woke me up -- and I wouldn’t know a stanza if it bit me. Congratulations!
Thanks for the words..both your comments and in your own work. <3
thanks for your words on The Spanking Experiment. It means a lot coming from you!
Misti, Thanks for your kind words on Outside Starbucks... Funny story about your Las Vegas encounter with Mr. Lactose Intolerant. Reminds me of the woman outside Foggy Bottom metro with her tin cup and "I am blind" sign. When I plopped an apple into her cup, she said, without touching the fruit, "I don't like apples, gotta buck instead?" But mostly, I still feel guilty enjoying my small pleasures. Peace...
Hey Misti. Great to recognize someone here on fictionaut. I am loving your Texas short stories!

Misti thank you for reading and faving my story about duck sex. it has changed a lot since you first read it. I have a terrible habit of making edits after a piece is up. But thank you so much, even if it's a bit smaller now, it was a great boost of confidence. xo
Just saw your grocery list tattoo - wow - one of the coolest i've ever seen... (i write that stuff on my hands in biro!)

YAY! My wall is back up!
Hey!! I just accessed your wall.
Misti, I'm a triple: sun, moon and venus. My hair is wildly out of control, they used a ton of gel in my photo. I also forget to shave my legs. ha!
Thanks, Misti, for faving "8 New Ways of Looking at Waffles." Appreciate your comments always.
Ahaha, reading that comment gave me a recollection of Bruce's full sensual lips! Apparently that cover art is embedded somewhere deep in my psyche. I devoured all the Sweet Valley High books when I was growing up.
I had a phase a couple of years back of working the Babysitter's Club and My Little Ponies and things into weird giddy stories. Never SVH though.
Thanks for reading and commenting. Looking forward to reading more of your work soon.
Thanks for the fave, Misti. Appreciated!
I like your reason for writing. It makes me want to be your friend. Thank you for the read & comment. Love your work--I see your name everywhere :)
Thank you for the kind, kind comments on my stories. Have followed your blog. You have a great name, by the way.
Hey, Misit. Thank you for commenting on "A Literary Separation". Much appreciated.
Thanks for your comment on Put it Where it Doesn't Belong... I'm glad you liked it. I hope you feel better soon! At least now, you will never have to worry about laughing so hard your uterus falls out. Just like I can no longer laugh my balls off, as my wife has them in a denture cup by the sink.
Misti, thanks for commenting on "Disappearing Ink." Glad you liked it!
thanks for commenting and favoriting "Flake", Misti!
Misti, thanks so much for Ringing, yeah, the insanity for sure..
Thanks, Misti, for commenting on and faving "Ribs." Glad you liked it!
God, what a great name!
Hi Misti! Thanks for reading "Thing" and the fave. I read "Cooter Shorts" simply because the word "cooter" makes me giggle. I liked it. I look forward to reading more from you.
Misti- your comment on "Smashed" made my day. Thank you! Haha!!!
Thank you so much for reading and commenting on "The Musical" - I hope you didn't shoot coffee (or Shiner Bock) out your nose.
"Thanks... for making Non-existent Vagina a favorite!" - Yes, the list of sentences I never thought I'd hear just got shorter by (at least) one. :)
..Anne Sexton, Kurt Vonnegut, J.D. Salinger, James Tate, Joe Pachinko, Zora Neale Hurston, Henry Miller, Dr. Seuss, the Brothers Grimm, Edward Abbey and Sandra Cisneros...yep,that's the stuff! Welcome.
