I’m popping up here briefly for a bit of shameless self-promotion. I’m working my way through the replies I owe folks bit by bit. Thanks for your patience. The shoulder is screaming less loudly now but it is still an issue, nonetheless. Sigh. But a few nice things have happened lately and I wanted to share them.
Thanks to Kelly Herold of Big A little a for her review of Hugging the Rock in the June/July 2006 issue of the online magazine The Edge of the Forest. (If you are reading this blog entry after July 2006 you’ll have to go to the archived issues for it as the links go to the current issue.)
Also, in the same issue, you can read an interview with me in the column The Blogging Writer.
The Edge of the Forest is a fairly new edition to the online MUST-READS to add to your list.
Any librarians who will be attending the fall CSLA conference in Sacramento, California this November, I will be giving a talk on Quiet Heroes in Extraordinary Times, based on my book Robert Smalls Sails to Freedom.
A thank you to those of you who are “friending” my writing prompts writeonrightnow and letting me know how useful you are finding the prompts. I appreciate your support.
