My Announcement

Friends and readers - 

As I come upon the two year anniversary of this blog, I've had time to put my 28 years of life and career in perspective. I'm proud of my two published books, and grateful to readers and fans. So it's with great sadness yet with great hope for the future that I announce my retirement. These wise old eyes have seen much over the years. Much they'd like to forget. Now, only time can erase those memories and create new ones in their place.

My wife and I will be moving outside of New York City. Somewhere quiet, perhaps a a state shaped more like a square. Somewhere we won't be bothered by the constant hustle and bustle. Somewhere we can walk the earth in peace. 

I've always wanted to run a farm, to dirty my hands in the bountiful soil of the earth. So this is my final writing. I will not be writing any more posts. Nor will I be publishing any more books. I hope THE MARK and THE GUILTY will stand on their own. Perhaps in time they will be mentioned in the same bated breaths as works such as Joyce's ULYSSES, Byrne's THE SECRET and Rand's ATLAS SHRUGGED. Only time will tell.

Thank you, and goodbye.
Jason Pinter

Before you go through with this, I urge you to speak with Mr. Lyons first, Jason. His wisdom has kept me writing when I thought I should have given up. You can reach him at 513-559-7767.

Shaped like a square, eh? I hear Wyoming is nice. Or maybe Colorado.

Pan-shaped states are also nice.
