Homicidal Aliens & Other Disappointments Released Today

 Homicidal Aliens & Other Disappointments has been released after a short sentence and then some longs ones and then some more short ones all got together and made a book.
I'm happy to announce that Homicidal Aliens & Other Disappointments--a work of imagination--  has made it into the real world. I love books and I'm proud and happy to have made one.  Still I accumulated a lot of rejections along the way --each one, as Steinbeck once said, a little death. Rejection hurts. But all it takes is one acceptance and the rejections don’t really matter.  I don’t think that JK Rowling is too broken up over the dozens of rejections of Harry Potter. A few things have happened since that have made those rejections pretty unimportant—except to the people who rejected her book.
So here’s a site worthy of a look—always fun to read about the rejections of books that went on to become classics or popular or both...
