Lunch and other Delights

Had a pleasant lunch with author Michael Morris, his publicist Kathie Bennett, her brother (and Panama City mayor) Scott Clemons, and reading specialist Milinda Jay from FSU-PC. We had sandwiches and tea at The Rabbit Hole downtown and spent an hour talking about everything important under the sun — family, friends, writing, writers, publishing, trends, newspapers, web sites, and on and on.

Michael asked if I blog, and as I intended to direct him here I decided I should have something fresh for him to read. (Hi, Michael!) So you have him to blame for this.

Kathie kindly offered to take a look at some of my work and see if she would be amenable to representing me as an agent, so I will be bugging her over the next couple of weeks. It will also mean I'll be focusing on what I really want to do with my life rather than posting rewrites of old articles so much.

Speaking of which:
Author Silas House Shares Southern State of Mind
is my latest, in case you're interested.

I plan to post something more substantial about Michael soon. (I'm planning to attend his Thursday night presentation at FSU-PC.) Meanwhile, you can check out my recent Sunday column about him.

And for those late arrivals, here are some more links to my online work:

— My latest blog at newsherald.com is about Grandma's Car
— My latest Undercurrents columns, collected at newsherald.com
— Most of my 366 Days short stories project

I'm trying to get these folks to buy into Twitter too. If you want to follow me, sign up at twitter.com and add @midnightonmars

Peace.
