Internet Writing Workshop members continue to find publishing success in all venues. Congratulations to this week's crew!

My first article for MarketingSherpa, "Email Relevance: 8 tactics for leveraging timing, segmentation and content" was the site’s most popular article last week. Marketing Sherpa measures popularity by retweets and sharing on social media. I'm not sure how much longer it will continue to be available to the general public.

My first ever guest blog is up at

It's a few tips any author can use with marketing, both pre- and post publication.

To get to the posting the site require you to indicate you are an adult. Not because of my piece, but because of other content there.

Some great news -- Random Violence has been nominated for a Shamus Award in the 2011 Best First Novel category. These awards are presented annually by the Mystery Writers of America, and we are one of five nominations in this category. I am super thrilled about this.

The Internet Review of Books may be scheduled for a hiatus come October, but we're still attempting to keep up with our three-reviews-a-week schedule.

We begin this week with a review I wrote about the Zenith Press book, Mission to Berlin, a story of an air raid on the Nazi capital during the waning days of WW II.

If you enjoy history, especially that of the 20th century, you'll find Zenith's catalog interesting. That press has been a long-time supporter of IRB, and we appreciate it.

My piece for Creative Loafing last week was about leftwing radio firebrand, Jay Marvin.

The money is rolling in now, big time!

Eric's Hysterics bought, "Doing God's Work," for $5.

Fiction365 bought, "A Bar in Omaha" for $10.

Both stories are set to be published at unspecified future dates.

My story, "Fear of Not Flying," is up at Eric's Hysterics. This is an old story, revised many times, and critiqued in Fiction.

It takes a village, but my problem with Submishmash has been solved and I can now announce that "A Normal Life," will be published in the November print edition of Insolent Aadrvark. The editor says a section of it may also go online.

"A Night on Harvey's Couch," written originally with Practice, has been accepted for the Oct. 2 issue of Daily Love.

"A Change of Heart" is scheduled for the September 10 edition of Fiction365.

My op-ed piece on Indian names for sports teams and mascots is in today's Los Angeles Times.
