As some of you know, I met with an interested publisher and I’m happy to announce that I will be spending the next fews months working on a collection of my very own. I am so excited! I’ve been offered a small advance and the assurance that I’ll be working with someone who is a lover of short stories. Just what I need to keep me feeling creative and inspired. Perfect timing too, as I can let the novel marinate, or simmer, or whatever it is that books do when you aren’t watching them closely. I’m happy but a little scared. Although I have to say it doesn’t feel overwhelmingly daunting. Yet. I might be saying something else in a few months. Thanks for all the good wishes. It feels great to finally be able to report something positive. Yay!
