Living in Las Vegas

This past week-end I was lucky enough to be invited to the Living Las Vegas Holiday Party hosted by Mark Sedenquist and Megan Edwards.  Mark is the publisher of the e-zine I sometimes write for,  It was a grand affair where most of the cyber writers were finally able to gather, mingle and share a few toasts with mead wine.  They also honored me with an excellence in writing award for my “Moving to Las Vegas Reality Check” article.

Also this past week-end, the Las Vegs Writers Group held their holiday party in the disco ball backroom of the Tap House in Summerlin.  It too was a grand affair.  I even was one of the authors that was allowed to get up and read the first 500 words from the Prologue of my in-process novel “For Rent: Dangerous Paradise.” Surprisingly, I was not nervous.  It was well-received by the audience and I thank everyone involved for the opportunity as it was an important step as I begin to come out of my writer’s shell and prepare my manuscript (and myself!) to be shown to agents, editors and prospective publishers.

The past two and half years living here in Las Vegas have been a blessing.  Props, shout-outs and much love to my wonderful wife Laura and all my new and old friends (which I hope will keep coming to visit us!).
