Seems very quiet in here. What is everyone doing this summer? Writing? escaping to the wilds. I know +Pamela Beason is out there on water and hills. I'm getting ready to go English Encampment on San Juan Island. July 20 and 31st, but I'll set up before that. the 100th anniversary of the national parks will make it extra fun.

Thank you to Jennifer Karchmer and her insightful conversation with me on her radio podcast Whatcom Wordsmith, which airs on KMRE Radio 102.3 FM and streamed from her website, jenniferkarchmer.com. The interview will air in early June so keep checking in, I will post the date and time.

We talked about "Smallest Bird", poetry, performing, and realized we had a lot more in common than we thought. It was a lot of fun, it was like talking over coffee and cocktails.

Kate helped build my book. She's a guru. See it on her website.

There's a discussion going elsewhere about an email people have received that starting in early February, readers will see some sort of tag saying that the book has typos or format problems. Indie writers feel that this will hurt them more than errors on the Big 5 . Readers tend to ignore errors there. Have you heard this?

Nothing more exciting than trying to get a cover for your novel. .Started the day with this, but really like the second (the boat. theyre' out of order) I may have a ghost image of a women in the rain shadow to the right of the boat. Comments please. Of course, I'll have the 2013 Chaucer 1st place category winner on it.
