Breaking News!!

Pretend this is MSNBC! Breaking News! Breaking News!

Our own Russ Heitz is the winner of The Infinite Writer Book Of The Year Award for his novel "Crosshairs" published in June. Congratulations Russ!!

I've been priviledged to read some of Russ' early work in short stories and this award is an example of his destiny. That being the recognition he deserves for his talented writing ability.
"Crosshairs" is the first of his crime/mystery saga and I understand he's hard at work on the second installment. Time now to read the first one if you haven't already. Check it out at his website linked to the left in the link column. Keep on keepin' on, Russ!
