Friday Shananigans: Facts of Life Edition!

The Facts of LifeWhat did I learn this week?

Well, for starters, I learned that you can pour your heart out in your writing and no one will blink an eye, but if you haphazardly create a goofy remix of Daredevil #168 with Pulp’s “Common People”, people will come. Oh, and write about ROM the Spaceknight too. My traffic went up by 500% in the last three days.

If you’re new here, my name is Christian A. Dumais. I’m a university lecturer and writer. I’m in the process of promoting my book Empty Rooms Lonely Countries, which is a collection of short stories about monsters, love and alcohol, among other things.  I’ve been writing commentaries about the stories in the order they appear in the book, and they can be read here.

I’m also giving away $1000 to someone who buys my book. Click here to find out how.

If you want to see where I am online, you can find me at Facebook, MySpace, GoodReads, LiveJournal, AlreadyPublished and Twitter.

You can also read and listen to interviews with me here, here, here, here and here.

I’ve also learned that my PhD work is going to kill me very, very slowly in the next couple of years. So please, buy a copy of Empty Rooms Lonely Countries and make sure my wife is financially comfortable when I die.

Have a great weekend, everybody!
