For various reasons, today I pulled together an overview of all my single-author book credits. When I finished, I had to sit down and say, "wow."

Stretching from 2003 to 2011, I've had 14 titles published or under contract in 23 editions. In addition to novels and collections, this counts book club, audio and foreign editions separately, as well as chapbooks.

I've also edited or co-edited 11 anthologies, each in a single edition. Several of them are forthcoming.

Still sitting down here.

Hm, yes, I'd heard about that The River Knows Its Own collection. I've just never been able to get one sent to me, try as I might :P

You gotta go see him at a con. Jay was giving some away at Orycon, and at the writers conference in North-Northern CA (Crescent City?).

If I lived in the US, I would. This was actually a slightly sardonic comment on the fact that my long-ago-mailordered copy is sitting under a pile of stuff on a desk @ Nuevo Rancho Lake ;) [Or possibly in a box somewhere...]

Ah, I get it now. Context, I had not. Hope you get it soon! I liked Jay's Texas stories ("Dogs in the Moonlight") and would recommend that collection as well.
