In my own personal quest for publication, I received two good pieces of news today.
Forthcoming in their "oldest profession" issue, my creative nonfiction piece, "The Brief Existence of Lainey O'Galeigh," will be published in MiPOesias .
Also, forthcoming in the Spring 2008 issue of Kaleidowhirl is one of my favorite pieces, "Homesick Sestina."
Today I went to the first annual Lady of Mercy Handmade Craft Show in Carrollton, Ohio. I didn't sell a ton of stuff, but I passed out lots of flyers about our grand-reopening in May (12th-18th, if you're in the area - check www.oldegarage.com for details and schedule of events). So we made back the table money, sold a few things, and got some (basically) free advertising.
The weird thing was people were buying lots of fall-flavored (read: orange and brown and fall colors) things. I thought it was Spring, people! :)
Anyway, I've got a ton of work to catch up on.
