And I talked to my editor to see if it was appropriate to divulge any details, because I’m now feeling a little less superstitious about the whole thing. So the contract I signed was with MLR press, which has been fabulously awesome and very patient with me and the title is “The Price of Everything.” I’m still keeping mum about the subject matter, but it’s a full-length novel and I’m extremely excited.
I want to hop up and down and sing “I’m a real writer, I’m a real writer” all the time even if that does kind of lack dignity. Not that I am extremely dignified. Anyone who knows me personally is snickering now, because they probably think dignity and myself do not belong in the same sentence.
I am extremely happy about all of this though, and I keep tapping away at my computer, so gentle readers, there is more in the offing, both the weird stuff I self-publish, and the less weird that I hope a publisher will want to publish for me.
