Fun blog, Barry. Congrats on your successes - and may there be many more.
You can thank MGB for sending me over here... Yeah, yeah - something else to be indebted to him for... Does it never end?
Although I have a suggestion that might kill two birds and ensure you're a winner all round. Working on your belief that a book bearing the title' Michael Gerard Bauer' would win awards - then go ahead an create a series. Create the 'Michael Gerard Bauer is a ?' (fill in the appropriate insulting adjective) series.
It's a win win - for you. You get all the awards, collect a motza and MGB gets a bit of a roasting in every book! Work for you?
Thanks again for the laugh,
