So I hear there's this thing called "The Blogosphere," and that sometimes people start up "blogs" and talk about their favorite cereals and discuss Tom Cruise's alien baby and their favorite t.v. shows.

This won't be that. Or at least most of it. In the words of Mick Jagger, "Please allow me to introduce myself. I'm a man of wealth and taste. Pleased to meet you. Won't you guess my name?"

Many of you will be guessing my name, since unless you're in the publishing industry chances are you don't know me from Adam. Hopefully that will change over time. Because come next summer, my first novel, THE MARK, will be in stores, and I'll be trying my ass off to convince you to pick up a copy. And the copy of my next book. Rinse, repeat until I go blind or you run out of money. My day job is an editor with one of those big conglomerates owned by people whose first language isn't English, but I'm adding Novelist to my business card. So naturally in addition to random postings about pop culture and cereal, I can hopefully illuminate you with some stories and factoids (a combination of facts and Altoids) on what publishing is like from both sides of the desk.

But in all seriousness, literature at its apex can entertain and inform, and hopefully on this blog I can do a bit of both.

Pleased to meet you.
Jason
