Hello everyone! I'm sure about %0.0 of you care, but I'm happy to the point it's unhealthy!

As few, or none, of you know, I have aspirations to be a writer. Well, as fate would have it, I NOW OFFICIALLY AM!!! That's right, I'm going to be published!

No, I'm not bringing a little chief fan into the world. I'm not a daddy, as many lucky fella's in here are. But I've given birth none the less. I've written a poem, and it's getting published! Most may not care, but my words inside of a hard bound novel are almost too much extasy for me to convey.
Fan of poetry or not, a fellow chief fan is now officially a writer, and damned it, I'm too excited to keep it in!

This brings me more joy than.....well, almost as much as would a chief super bowl. I'm just sooooo happy I'm to stupid for words. I'm telling anyone who'll listen, and damned it, you poor slobs almost feel like extended e-family.

I'd buy you all a beer if I could!!!!

Thanx guys! Book will be out winter of 2001 (whenever that is.) It's called "Nature's Echoes."

Cheesy, 'eh!?!

Oh well, published is still published. And I can't say I'm not happy as hell. Most in here probably don't dig both poetry and football, and I wouldn't be surprised, but it's an undescribable feeling to have your own words printed in a hard cover book fer' all ta' see.

Congradulations Brad. Its always refreshing to see someone reach a goal through hard work and persistence. Poetry is great. For your next book you should write a compilation which conveys the frustration it is to be a Chiefs fan 'lo these years.

Hmmm, what the hell rhymes with Grbac?

Congrats Brad!!! I'm sure that your one heck of a great writer to get published. The publishing company must put out a lot of money for this so it is a big risk for them. For them to have chosen to publish your work is a HUGE accomplishment. Again, Congrats!!

The closest that I ever came to your accomplishment was to have one of my Writing Professors in College share one of my poems with his classes. That felt great, but I can't imagine how you feel.

If you can, maybe you could share one of your unpublished works with us?

Congrats Brad. I've been published several times in an Oracle mag so I know what you mean about the 'rush' of seeing your name in print.

Enjoy the ride and be sure to have 'em punch your ticket for the next go-around.

I wonder if Poe was this excited the first time he was published?

Congrats, Brad! That's quite an accomplishment! I'm sure your family is quite proud!
