Still sick, but slightly on the mend. Thus, a short post tonight of newsworthy items:
Lost Crossings update:
T-minus 45 hours and counting until show time. We’ve received reviews and press in the following publications: Our State Magazine, Mountain Xpress online, The Laurel of Asheville, and Yancey Common Times. About 2/3 of our books have sold and we haven’t even formally debuted at our two local events yet. Shane and I have a few hundred dollars left of the monies we fundraised and it looks like we are going to have to use it to express order a second printing of the book!
No from Quick Fiction.
Yes to a residency from Vermont Studio Center (yeehaw!).
Yes to an interview with TopSecret School for a six-month Writer-in-Residence position. My phone interview is next week – wish me luck – and then a final decision is made between the candidates.
Yes to a pay raise from one of the national magazines that I write for frequently.
