Something About the Author

Hi everyone,

Yesterday was an amber morning here at Goose Lake. The sun came up mellow. There was no wind. Ducks quietly drew lines across the water like they were solving a geometry problem. The breakfast room table became part of the landscape.
I learned that the new edition of SOMETHING ABOUT THE AUTHOR is out. The editor sent me a pdf of my article in it. The book costs $245 so I’m afraid it won’t find its way into many homes!

I spent the morning working on a new story. It stinks, but not as much as it stank when I started. In the afternoon I did a school visit and told the kids my story stinks but it’s only the fourth draft and has a long way to go. My goal today is to make it start smelling better, maybe even good.

Something About the Author

Hi everyone,

I’ve heard from the folks who publish the series of reference books called SOMETHING ABOUT THE AUTHOR that they are planning an update of my profile in an upcoming edition. I checked my records and verified that I was in a volume in 1997 and updated in 2008 and 2113. Is anyone familiar with this series and do you find it useful? It’s a reference book priced at $246 and geared for libraries. They pay me to be in it so unless I hear negative feedback from you, I guess I’ll okay the new article. The last one ran around 5,000 words and I received a pre-pub copy to review and edit. Thanks.

David
