It's pub date for Maze of Blood--

I'm pleased and touched by the many shares of news about Maze of Blood on Facebook and also on twitter--thanks so much to readers and friends (irl-friends and e-friends) for supporting the book. Maze of Blood on the website here.


  1. May I be the first person today to respond here by wishing you a-maze-ing success with your book launch.

    1. Thanks, Tim! I did get a wonderful number of posts about the book elsewhere, but it's definitely a job to lift a book into the light unless you have a lead book with the Big 5. Every little bit helps.


Alas, I must once again remind large numbers of Chinese salesmen and other worldwide peddlers that if they fall into the Gulf of Spam, they will be eaten by roaming Balrogs. The rest of you, lovers of grace, poetry, and horses (nod to Yeats--you do not have to be fond of horses), feel free to leave fascinating missives and curious arguments.
