It came from out of nowhere

In case you missed it: Here is my Sunday column about meeting author Kathy L. Patrick, Pulpwood Queen and "hairdresser to the authors."

So I got a call this a.m. from Kathie Bennett, KLP's publicist, who wants to work with me on literary projects. We discussed some possibilities, including a rewrite of Century that might make it more marketable to a wider audience; marketing the current version harder (though that's probably a losing proposition as most book events only want to host someone with a book that was released in the past 365 days); packaging a new collection of columns; lining me up for writer conferences and selling my books secondary to that; and/or pushing my newer unpublished manuscripts instead.

We'll be thinking. If you have suggestions, drop'em in comments.

Meanwhile, my friend River Jordan has asked me (among many others) to participate in a 30-day experiment in "Praying for Strangers." You can read more about it on her blog. I'll let you know how it goes. AND you could get involved too. Share your stories here and I'll forward them to River.

Peace.
