Pictured to the left is ECW Press publisher Jack David, in Los Angeles at Book Expo America, accepting the Gold Medal for Best Popular Fiction at this year’s Independent Publisher Book Awards. Notice that shiny hunk of bling around his neck? Yeah, that’s mine, and I want it. I’ll likely pick it up this weekend at Book Expo Canada, where I’ll be picking up free books, meeting people, and generally having a blast. I won’t be signing, as I have no new novel out, but please stop by the ECW booth to meet some truly talented and quality writers. John McFetridge is signing copies of his latest novel on Sunday, which I cannot recommend highly enough.
