Infomercial Time Again. Woot.

All last week I was visualizing my victory in The Smoking Poet's Third Annual Short Story Contest, but all my imagination could muster was a self-deprecating "I'm number two! I'm number two!" I love to make fun of myself, as I'm sure you've noticed . . . a few times. (The art over there is by Chihuly)

I won! I won! And--get this--I got the email as I was reading one of the stories at The Smoking Poet. That's what I call überspooky.

Pop by and read my story (if you love me). Everyone loves a winner, right?

Anyhooo, a big hug to Zinta Aistars and all the people at The Smoking Poet.

I must be off,


  1. AWESOME STORY. AWESOME WIN!!!!! One of my absolute faves by you.

  2. Congratulations, Christopher! from me and from the staff at The Smoking Poet. Enjoy the issue. It is surely our best yet, and thanks to all our wonderful contributors.


  3. I really like your blog! I'm a new author and have enjoyed this new experience. I find that it's the most difficult and most rewarding. I'm also a graphic designer and love having that creative outlet as well.
    Thanks for your post! I will be back for more updates. :-)
