1. Yesterday was the official release date of Mountain Magic: Spellbinding Tales of Appalachia, the anthology that contains my poem "Margaret Rose". I haven't gotten my copy yet, but it's on the way. I love the Mountain Magic website for referring to me as one of "thirteen master storytellers". Those of you with any interest in purchasing a copy for your very ownsome can do so at the Woodland Press site.
2. Remember that post from Sense & Sensibility I promised you? Yeah, well . . . it ain't happening. We'll get to Chapter 12 on Monday.
3. I'm going to an event on Tuesday at the Free Library in Philadelphia where I get to see and hear A.S. Byatt. I'm currently reading her short story collection, Little Black Book of Stories, and I'm already majorly in love with Possession. I've got a copy of The Children's Book as well, but haven't read it yet.
