Happy Birthday, Joan Jett



Yes, LOL -- thin on content yet again: tenure package is coming together, but I forgot that the reassigned time and professional grant requests are due Friday and must be signed by my department chair and dean before being submitted. Soon, soon, I will be able to breathe again. Two other non-fiction projects due this week as well, and as they are paid gigs, so they can't be set aside. Somehow it will all get done, right?

Some good news: a short story inspired by a chance remark from a pal has already been accepted for an anthology. The story is "A Case of Dead Faces" and is a mash-up of jazz, argot, tarot and the Buddha.

And I wonder why it's so hard to place my stories...

Excellent news on the placement...what's the anthology's title, if settled, and the ETA?

"I don't give a damn 'bout my Phud Dissertation..."

The title at present anyway is The Full Moon, the electronic version thereof is supposed to be available in December with a print version to follow. Should be interesting.

Yes, the Joan is always right. I like the lyric change. Indeed.

You're quite full on! Busy busy. Your new photo looks great.

Bargain with the Devil

Thanks, Enid. Yeah, busy is my middle name which makes it difficult to maintain that image of laziness I try so hard to project. You've been busy of late, too! Good promo efforts!

Congratulations on having your story (with a most interesting title, I must add) accepted for the anthology.

Thanks, Jane. Yeah, I do really make things difficult for myself in all kinds of ways. I can't help it. I'm just odd, LOL!
