... contract copies of it arrived at his house today. I wanted to blog about it because this guy has worked so hard, for so many years, to get to this place in his life. Yes, I admit to a certain amount of jealousy, because of course I wish it were me standing there, holding copies of my book. That's only natural, however, I am also filled with so much joy for him. My book is still being shopped by my agent, so hopefully I'll get there one day, too, but again: he's already there. His novel is a concrete object, with a certain mass and weight that occupies space. He's been hard at work building his author platform and he's doing a fine job at it. You'll find his blog and his website listed here on this blog. Please visit him. He's a great writer, and more of his books will be coming out, trust me.
This man is Ryan David Jahn. His book is Acts of Violence.
