I’ve been off the grid somewhat, busy editing a nonfiction book for a local author here in the Atlanta area. If you or someone you know is transitioning from the military to a civilian job, check out the forthcoming guide Boots to Loafers: Finding Your New True North on my editing page. I’m honored that John Phillips chose me to help bring his project to fruition.
Meanwhile, a story I wrote last year that originated from a workshop I attended at the Auburn Writers Conference has been published in the adult adoptee anthology Perpetual Child: Dismantling the Stereotype thanks to editors Diane René Christian and Amanda H.L. Transue-Woolston. I’m thrilled to have my work included alongside the other highly-respected authors in this collection, and equally thrilled to be a participant in The An-Ya Project, so named after Diane’s novel, An-Ya and Her Diary. Print copies of Perpetual Child can be ordered now via Amazon and the e-book version will be available soon.
Lost Daughters: Writing Adoption from a Place of Empowerment and Peace, an anthology I co-edited with Amanda H.L. Transue-Woolston, Julie Stromberg, and Jennifer Anastasi, is in the capable hands of the good folks at CQT Media and Publishing. I’ll post about our book’s release as soon as it’s ready.
As the year winds down, I’ll be concentrating on a couple of personal literary projects that have been waiting on the back burner. I hope to have more to tell about those in the next few months. Stay tuned!
