Life changes on the toss of a coin. Those in the fate biz reminded of that particular point this week while I was in Atlanta. Twelve hours after hearing over-the-moon-good news at National, I called home to share my joy and learned devastating news about a close family member.

The bad news has thrown me off-kilter and I will not be able to appear at my first library talk this week. However, some very good friends and chapter-mates of mine will be there. So if you’d love to learn How to Get Your Work Published and you’re in the Long Island area, come to the Great Neck Library on Wednesday, August 2nd at 2:00 pm. You won’t be disappointed.
