Hey there — Somehow I’ve missed a week and I can’t tell you where it went. There’s been lots of socializing lately — a retirement party, dinners out, a play (“Mary Page Marlow” by Tracy Letts at Steppenwolf), end of the year parties, birthdays, workshops etc. Hope your calendar is full of fun.
Congrats to Joe Meno. His novel won the adult fiction book of the year award from the Society of Midland Authors. The award ceremony just happened at the Cliff Dwellers Club in Chicago, a place I want to go to just because of its name. What images do you conjure when you hear “cliff dwellers?”
The giveaway for Solace in So Many Words is complete and I am about to send the five lucky winners their copies with the hope they’ll be so impressed by the book, they’ll write a great review. Solace in So Many Words is my baby so I appreciate when it gets new attention. Speaking of which, I am about to go on a local cable show. Taping soon. Fingers crossed I don’t screw up.
Here’s some shots I took of Chicago recently.
Peace, love, and solace
