Hello, Fam ... Just wanted to let you in on some big news regarding my book, "Damballa." This past weekend, "Damballa" was named the winner of the Pulp Factory Award for Best Pulp Novel of 2011. The award was announced at the Windy City Pulp and Paperback Convention, which was held in Chicago. I am honored and humbled to receive this award. As the late James Brown would have said, "I feel good!"
