When it Rains, it Pours

I’ve been away from the blog for a bit because I’ve been busy as a bee with other projects.  (How’s that for alliteration?)  Two major pieces of writing that I first completed a couple of years ago, are now in the publishing queue and came up for revision/copy edits at the same time.  One is a long-ish short story (10,000 words) called “Pilgrimage” about a girl with cerebral palsy who travels to Paris with her sculptor single mother.  This one will appear in the young adult literary journal Cicada.  The other is an essay written for an anthology, One Big Happy Family, edited by Rebecca Walker and to be published in February by Riverhead.  On top of that, I’ve been working on my speech for a presentation in Osaka tomorrow night for the monthly meeting of the Foreign Executive Women AND my editor at J-Select just asked me to write an article by NEXT FRIDAY.

I will resume the story of how Love You to Pieces came to be shortly.  Stay tuned…
