I love this. :) If I'd had more time I would've liked to've stopped in bookstores as I was doing my tour. As it was I just stopped in one and signed the single copy they had there. And I didn't even include any secret messages.

I wish my aspirations were more literary, but my dream is to some day have the clout to be able to waltz right into media outlets and pitch them ideas and have them listen to me (and, of course, pick up the pitches and do them.) I want to be at the creative helm of a media empire--like Neil Gaiman. I'm pretty sure that guy could walk into the office of anybody from the Lifetime Network to Def Jam Records and get a contract. Personally, first I'll get my American YA fantasy series "Li'l Acorn and the Republic of Pareidolia" made into an epic film septology, then I'm hitting up Cartoon Network first for a surreal action series (which I will do some voice acting for). Next I'll swing by an electro record company and get a music contract. Finally I'll set my sights on video games...

Ambitious, ain't I?

While not authors per se, I thought I'd share what the creators of Mortal Kombat said they would take as the sign that they had "made it": ShrinkyDinks of their characters. (Incidentally, they succeeded at that.)
Everybody loves using things as other things, right? Check out my blog at the Cromulent Bricoleur and see one hipster's approach to recycling, upcycling, and alterna-cycling (which is a word I just made up).
