|Stray cat and orange tree at Knossos, in Crete|
Last night, I stayed up late to finish my midterm grading so I could spend today delving back into the Greek novel. The dogs--Rooby Doo and the Feefinator--are providing moral support.
In other news, a Romanian blogger living in Italy is doing a book giveaway today and one of the books is Catherine. So if you speak Romanian--or even if, like me, you just speak Google Translate--drop by and enter.
A reminder to fiction writers: The Eratosphere Flash Fiction Workshop starts tomorrow, and I'll be playing Distinguished Guest, providing daily writing prompts, giving feedback on some of the stories, and, five days in, choosing a top entry. If you want to take part, you'll need to register, but it's quick and painless.
And if you happen to live in my neck of the woods, consider coming out to hear me read Saturday night with Amy Small McKinney. It's at 7 p.m. in Towne Book Center and Cafe, Plaza Drive, Collegeville, PA, at the intersection of Rt. 422 and Rt. 29.
