Today, I’m thrilled to have a guest post on Amy Willoughby-Burle’s website. Amy is a respected short-story writer who now lives in Asheville and was kind enough to write a blurb for my book. It was so wonderful, I stole part of it for my own nefarious marketing purposes!!
I have to confess to serious title envy when I read Amy’s stuff. Consider these short stories–“Stone Jesus in the Front Yard,” “The Downside of Redemption,” and “Bottle Caps and Spanish Gypsies.” Her short story collection, Out Across the Nowhere, captures the poignancy of childhood moments and adult dilemmas. I feel privileged she invited me to do a guest post on her website.
And, if that’s not enough literary excitement for you, this evening I’m scheduled to read from The Button Collector during the NC Writer’s Network Hendersonville October Open Mic event at the Henderson County Public Library. Social begins at 5:30 and readings begin at 6 pm.
Careful readers will note that I wrote “I’m scheduled to read” rather than “I’m going to read.” Public speaking is not my strong suit, but I’ll do my best to be there and hopefully coax a few words out of my mouth! It’s a process . . . .
Hope to see you there!
