Joys of Summer: Random Thoughts

In truth, it seems like very little has happened since I wrote last Thursday, and it seems like the week has flown by.

Last week, I discussed my venture into online publishing, as I have posted all five Jack Austin PGA Tour novels on Smashwords, iBooks, and Amazon’s Kindle. I am watching the “sample download” and “sales” figures closely and reading numerous articles on the E-book industry.

Aside from building an Amazon author page, the week has been spent working on (or rather fighting with) a short story inspired by this fascinating article, creating a Power Point presentation for a pedagogy discussion I will give at a conference in October, and packing—we are moving (less than a mile) in August—and packing and packing. When I’m not packing, I’m driving my daughters to and from tennis, lacrosse, and now pottery camp (ever think you’d hear of such a thing?).

I want to recommend a wonderful novel I just finished, LAST CAR TO ELYSIAN FIELDS by James Lee Burke. Burke is a poet, an absolute master. He has won two Edgar Awards (no one has won more), and LAST CAR is vivid, dark, existential, and funny. Definitely worth a read.

Back to my story and my boxes!
