Thanks all round

If not for Graham Powell’s indispensable site, I would not be able to keep up with my favorite crime blogs. A great service deserves recognition.

To family, friends, loved ones, assigning editors and those in the publishing industry – I wouldn’t have survived my first full year as a freelancer without you.

And thanks, once more, to each and every reader of Confessions of an Idiosyncratic Mind – three years strong (and growing) to crib from one of the most ubiquitous commercials of my childhood.

There will be a Weekend Update at some point on this long weekend.

Happy holidays, all.
