I've had the good fortune to make the acquaintance of a number of published authors through either Flickr or Livejournal (or both).
Technically, adamselzer, the author of these two recent purchases, is not one of my internet contacts; rather, I am virtually acquainted with his fiancé, lilrongal.
adamselzer has a third humorous novel in the publishing pipeline, slated for a September 2008 release, based on one of my favorite topics: spelling bees! Sources suggest that the "bee" book may be his best yet.
Get 'em here!
(Review forthcoming... dependent on work schedule, procrastination, laziness, etcetera, etcetera....)
