Back to the other World

After two days of sequestering with computer and manuscript it will be nice to have human contact. I've enjoyed my own company in my own little corner of the world. It's a little cluttered, but, then, so is my head.

Now it's back to work decorating cakes. These days I really enjoy my job and my coworkers. All things considered, I'd rather be writing.

Right up my Galley

It's been an educational day for me. I've spent the day making corrections to my manuscripts. I hope that I'm understanding the editor's directions.
Nonetheless the process is exciting. So tomorrow I'll send the first galley back to High Hill Press and await further instruction to come with the second galley.

Where do I Begin?

This is a first for me. I've never blogged before. But then again, I didn't consider myself an author until about five years ago. So has begun a new chapter in my life. (Pun always intended.)

My first book "This, That and Sometimes the Other" will be out by the end of this year from High Hill Press. It's an ecclectic collection of short stories and original illustrations. I've had a great time writing them and I hope that others will have a great time reading them.

The process has been both exciting and frustrating. At present I have the first galley in front of me and am following the editor's suggestions to make it a better book.
