Inspired by summer sights on the beaches of Buenos Aires, Lily has whipped up a pair of swimming togs and insisted that if he wants his lunch Ratty must first try them on. With water rat in his ancestry, Ratty tries to recall an instance when a swim might have been enhanced by the addition of .07 m of green spandex with a twisty-tie doing duty for shoulders.
Meanwhile, fresh thought is going into RMB. Ideas are percolating. Last week I talked with Lorraine Steele of Lighthouse PR ("A guiding light in book publicity" — check out the very cool website) about the challenges of selling ebooks. I appreciated her enthusiasm, open mind, and generosity. We'll be keeping in touch, but meanwhile she's given me plenty of resource ideas to follow up.
I talked with Dorothee, too, about the audio book almost ready for release, which is The Glass Harmonica read aloud in her melodic voice. I'll let you know as soon as that's available.
Meanwhile, The Happiest Music on Earth is with the formatter and I've come upon its successor in the 10k series — an exciting new voice in fiction.
Right now, I'm keen to look at 10,000 word essays for consideration. Pass it on.
