Chocolate and potato chips

[A poor photo of a screenprint, story from Dictee.] I took a big afternoon break to snack, watch Parks and Recreation, lay down to listen to NPR, and generally wish I didn't have to market this book. But I managed to do a couple of applications, start a couple more, and send out the dreaded "will you have me?" messages to strangers in hopes of building the skeleton of a book tour. And was heartened this morning because my publisher said I was a "dream author"! As a diehard people pleaser (yes, I know this is a BAD thing), that totally made my day. Maybe this week, amidst all the admin, I can start making things again.

nice print. i seem to have only about 1/2 of the people pleasing gene myself. but to be called a dream author, while (unfortunately) not resume material, is fantastic praise!
