So far, this has been a great month for my web site. Through the magic of Facebook, I had over 500 visitors to my essay “A Hoosier Childhood” in just one week! And I wasn’t even promoting it. Strangers were posting and re-posting. Although I wrote that piece a long (loooong) time ago, it resonates still. Today I decided to take another baby step and manipulate my WordPress page a bit — computer programs make me gnash my teeth, so I avoid tampering with them. I’ve attempted to organize my site a bit more and add this blogging page. I’ve been hard at work finishing up my chapbook, which will head to a publisher in the next couple of weeks, and I hope to secure a few public readings with it. My big project after that is to finish my current novel and shop it around. I have about six half-finished books in my drawer, and I’ve never gotten over that hump of finally finishing one. Godspeed to me! Thanks for checking in on my web site. Hope you’re enjoying your summer so far!
