Sorry I haven’t posted much about the book lately. I’ve been spending most of my writing time putting the stories together. Right now, I’m working on the last story, “Beating the Spread”. It’s taking a while to write, because it’s got a heavy load. It will bring in characters from all (or at least most) of the other stories, and bring the reader full circle back to the Introduction.
Incidentally, if I have one word of advice for people planning on reading Long-Distance Dedications (and, seriously, if you’re not, why are you here?) I would strongly recommend that you read the introduction to the book. It’s not that the stories won’t make sense withot it (at least, I hope not), but you’ll get more out of the book and understand the structure and the overarching story better if you read it. There’s a draft form of it on the main site right now, but I will probably be altering that somewhat before I publish the whole book.
Anyway, as always, you can check out some of the stories that will be in the book on Amazon. “And Ye Shall Be Healed” and “The Fight” will both be in the book. (If you’re interested, “Hackettstown” is also on Amazon, but I haven’t decided yet whether or not that story will make it in. I have mixed feelings about that one, which I will probably explore in a different post.)
Anyway, if I don’t get back to the blog before the new year, I hope everyone has/is having a happy, healthy holiday I’ll talk to you soon!
