Social Media? We Doan Need No Steenkin’ Social Media!

Okay, I created a Twitter page and a Facebook page for this endeavor. somewhat to my chagrin. No fan of social media, I. Hell, I bailed entirely on the whole concept last year when this whole Cambridge Analytica mess came out. However, I know it’s a requirement, if for no other reason not to look like some sort of prehistoric troglodyte.

So you can check out @S_W_Words on Twitter or @SweetWeaselWords on Facebook (ain’t doin’ Instrgram or anything else if I can avoid it – and I can). You’re not going to see anything there that you won’t see hear. Or perhaps anything at all if I can’t figure out how to automaticaly link the content from this website to those two social media platforms.

Grumble, grouse, piss, moan…

I’d Rather Be Writing

Instead, however, I’m working on this bloodydamn website. Oh well. it’s gotta happen if I want this book to see the light of day, so to speak. Blew my budget on getting the MS edited by someone who knows what they’re doing, so I can’t afford to pay someone to put this site together. Oh well, that’s rock ‘n’ roll, baby.

Welcome to Sweet Weasel Words

Welcome to Sweet Weasel Words, home of author Crawford Smith.

I love writing, but am not particularly fond of creating and maintaining websites, so please be patient while I continue to beat this site into some sort of order.

My big project right now is rolling out two stories about a strange little town called Fester, Pennsylvania. The first is a novella called Powwows, about witchcraft and murder in the Depression.

See the Powwows page for more details and a preview.

Following Powwows will be a full-length novel called Fester. We are aiming to have this published in eBook and paperback on June 30. More to come soon!


Still available is the fascinating Jackrabbit. This is a historical crime novel about the latter career of Depression-era gangster John Dillinger. This criminal’s life was indeed stranger than fiction – so much so that I had to focus on only the last five months of it to keep from overwhelming myself and the reader. Check out the Jackrabbit page for details.
