Danny Wallace (and writing)

So I just ordered three more Danny Wallace books from Amazon. Through the magic of used, I got them all for around $15. It was the shipping that counted for most of the cost, due to the fact that I was ordering them from different shippers, but WHATEVS.

Listen, seriously, Danny Wallace is a fantastic author. If you like what I write, you should read his stuff because it is so much better. And on occasion, strikingly similar.

As an example, here's a short passage from Join Me:

"I could tell he didn't quite know how to react. I could tell this because he'd gone all quiet and was avoiding my eye, and he'd muttered the words, 'I don't quite know how to react to that.'"

GUYS SERIOUSLY GO READ A DANNY WALLACE BOOK RIGHT NOW. DO IT.

I am in author love. I want to be as awesome as Danny Wallace. That is my new Writing Goal.

SO CLOSE TO ALMOST DONE WITH GETTING PRINT VERSIONS OF BOOK FOUR AND THE OMNIBUS AVAILABLE. Once that's done, all of my attention is going to the llama book. I can't wait. I can't wait to do some hardcore revision. I've never really done that before, so I'm both terrified and excited, but I'm mostly looking forward to revisiting the llama books and transforming them into something new and exciting, but also very the same as before. Mostly I'm excited to not have to read a chapter of someone else's writing before I set to work on my own stuff.

OH AND. The voting for LJ Idol is up. If you liked my last post at all, or you like me at all, or you just don't want to break my heart, I could use your help. It's not my best week ever over there.
