From the Harvard Coop

The above picture was taken by a friend last night at the Harvard Coop, where I had a reading event which was a lot of fun. As with the Brookline Booksmith, the person organizing it was extremely well prepared, and the people working there are not only book lovers, but they had read Small Crimes and were fans. Add in dinner at Henrietta's Table, and all in all, a very nice night. And it didn't hurt to see that the Yankees and their $370 mil payroll get smoked in their season opener!

It sounds like you had a great evening and congrats on the success of the book. (I'm leaving my first comment here as you knock my beloved Yankees.)

Well done on your amazing evening.
I'm blogging for help!
Due to a glitch in amazon.uk’s system, I believe I’ve written the only crime thriller in the UK that doesn’t appear on amazon.co.uk. My publisher’s many other titles are listed, and my book can be ordered from all other online suppliers including amazon.com. Amazon.uk refuse to acknowledge their technical error.
I’m an insignificant individual, powerless to influence this huge corporation, but their indifference has incensed me. I’m attempting to battle amazon.uk’s virtual monopoly of the UK online book market by asking readers in the USA to order my inexpensive paperback through other online suppliers like amazon.com.
If you would be kind enough to consider supporting my campaign against a faceless corporation, please check out my blog for details of Cut Short by Leigh Russell

David, thanks, although still looking forward to the Yankees and their gazillion dollar payroll falling flat on their collective faces.

Leigh, I'm amazed that A No Exit Press book can't get into amazon.co.uk's system. Your publisher has been unable to fix this? What reason has your publisher been giving you for this?

Never one to defend the dreaded skankies, but which team had 8 and which had 2 out in Oakland last night?

The Harvard thing looked cool, New England Cheaterface fan ... I'm still trying to get my books in the Staten Island Community College.

The countdown begins ... My beloved new york state buffalo bills and your new england cheaterfaces ... Moss vs. TO ... Edwards vs. that other guy married to the hot model ... Kraft (as in crafty) vs. Wilson (as in as old as Woodrow) ... Sunday (or is it Monday?) nights will never be the same.

Go Bills. Go Mets. (how's that for two chokers?) ... Go anything but Skankies and/or Cheaterfaces

Charlie, WTF are you doing here trying to stir up trouble? JD Rhoades ban you from his blog??

Hey, it's early, and besides the Sox are the good guys, Yankees are the evil empire. All of baseball can only rejoice when the Yankies suffer any setbacks.

And about your Bills, please. They'd be lucky to beat a good high school team. ITs' going to be ugly when the Pats toy with them the way a cat does a wounded bird.

But who could resist stirring the pot with Hahvahd types?

The Bills will win 4 games this year (the ones that count) ... 2 against the Y-E-T-S, Yets, Yets, Yets and two against the Cheaterfaces. How sure am I?

Mortgage the house on it (your house).

Charlie, here's what we in Boston think about such heresy as the Bill's having a snowball's chance against the Pats:


Although the Bill's do have a shot against the pathetic Jets.
