Writers 4 Writers is featuring me today.

Today, Writers4Writers is featuring me and Nick Wilford. In case you are unaware of Writers4Writers, it is an initiative to promote authors and their books by harnessing the power of Twitter. It congregates the third Monday of every month to promote 1-3 authors. I got the email from Mary that said it was this Monday, however, so they must have just decided to do it a week early. It's all good even if there's some confusion.

If you have time, please visit the Hosts of this marketing brainchild. They are Mary Pax, Christine Rains, C.M. Brown, and Stephen Tremp.

So, if you are here for Writers4Writers, I first want to say thank you for helping to promote my book. Just copy and paste any tweet from below and send it off into the twitterverse:

Read a sample from Michael Offutt's "Slipstream." It's a sci-fi pulse pounding adventure. #YAOI #W4WS http://slckismet.blogspot.com/p/an-excerpt-from-slipstream.html

Thanks again to all the Writers4Writers promoters and organizers. This is a great program that benefits everyone. I encourage those of you who follow my blog who have not signed up, to go and visit Stephen's website now and fix that.
Because it's Veteran's Day, I also want to send a big thank you to every veteran out there. You have my profound respect, and please remember to go by your friendly neighborhood Texas Roadhouse sometime today and get your free lunch. The program is nationwide. Get some baked beans, cornbread, and fall-off-the-bone ribs. Mmmm.

    Have a great day.

  3. I should do like Fry in Futurama and sign up for the military just to get free ribs. Though at this point I don't think they're desperate enough to take me.

  9. Hi Michael .. good luck with your book ...

    It's so sad about Andrew, Nick's stepson ... such a shock for the family - my heart goes out to them .. and to all who've lost, felt the remnants of war ... we are grateful for our freedom ... Hilary
