It's Friday Filler because I want one!
Scott, Michelle, and I were up until the late hours of the night talking about books and our next anthology project and food. We'll be explaining more on this soon, and I'm excited!
I've also been hatching plans with the fantastic deWishes delights to make a fun custom-made writing-related cake truffle set for some blog reader to coincide with the release of my short story collection in June. deWishes delights is co-founded by the most wonderful and passionate and animal-loving person, Michelle "Mishy Fishy" Tseng, who also works as a physical sciences and reading teacher. Really, she's the coolest! Hi Mishy! (If you want more updates on my book, sign up for my mailing list over on the right. I'd appreciate it.)
Lastly, for anyone who's in the area, I'll be reading this Sunday at noon at the Silver Lake Jubilee. I'm going to surprise the organizers a little bit by reading an unpublished story from my collection called "Dogs: Wet & Dry" that describes a love triangle between a French woman, a dog, and a goose. If I get up the courage I'll be using different voices! (The fact that they anticipate 35,000 people at the Jubilee probably means I won't have the courage.)
What cool and quirky and awesome and ridiculous and scrumptious things is everyone up to?
