20 February 2008


Sent in the final final final of the Dead Cars in Managua manuscript today. Yikes.

My last chance to make any changes will be on the page proofs I expect to get within a couple of weeks.

And then it will go to press.

And then I will have a new book.

I will be showered with gold pieces.

I will be carried through the streets on the shoulders of the adoring masses.

I will appear on Oprah and The Friendly Giant. Also My Mother the Car.

This is what a writer can expect when a new book is published.

The first car I ever owned was the station wagon that had belonged to my mother.

Over and out.

Yes, I can then finally sell photos of you for untold sums of money. Gobs of it. After which, I could stop eating ramen noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Best of luck! I am counting on you.
