The book signing I mentioned, two posts ago, produced a nice surprise: Ed Mayes, Frances’ husband, was also there, as well as Steven Rothfeld, photographer for a few of her projects. Ed is genuine and outgoing. While Frances signed my eight books, Ed and Steven made me feel at home. Both signed books they’ve been involved with.
Back home after the book signing, I made a submission to France magazine, via website, which now accepts submissions. Then it was off to New Mexico, that evening.
Yesterday, we drove around the Piedra Lumbre area of Abiquiu; one short visit shows why Georgia O’Keeffe remained so long.
And so, surrounded by beauty, I hold good thoughts that perhaps I’ll get a publishing credit this year, a step forward for Half Italian.
