Shine On You Crazy Diamond City

If anyone is unaware of my recent accomplishment, this might be a good time to fill you in. Both the Diamond City and Electric City, highly respected periodicals, have bestowed on me the title Local Author of the Year.

Quite a coup, I know. They don’t give that title to just any bum off the street. I am now respected and envied within the literary establishment. Women want me and men want to be me. I have both a sash and a scepter.

But to be serious for a moment, I’m so honored to have won in both the Diamond City and Electric City papers. I guess this makes me the poet laureate of Northeastern Pennsylvania.

I would like to thank and my readers for their continued support and feedback. 2015 was my most successful and rewarding year as an author and this double win indeed ends the last twelve months with a bang.

Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the New Year.
