Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Butcher Boy, and I thought you might like my novel since it's also about a disturbed adolescent and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Like you'll ever get your whole collection on. I gave up! ;)
Gawrsh. I'm actually hardly ever on LibraryThing, I must admit. Maybe I should get my photo books on line or something.
