There’s more news to report. I didn’t mention this before,
but I entered Half Italian (and then
some) in a book contest. I met deadlines for 2013’s contest by the “skin of
my teeth” as they used to say.
Finalists have been announced, and the book made two of
three categories into which it was entered.
Considering I’d thought this manuscript’s permanent home was
on a shelf in my closet, this progress seems significant.
