It’s in the mail!

“Graveyard Shift” is in the mail. It was the single most expensive story I have ever sent out, mainly because it was so long. It weighted just over 20 ounces and cost something over $4 to send off. But it’s on it’s way!


I got a haircut this morning, and then headed up to Attick park to sit by the lake and read. I started Ray Bradbury’s Driving Blind and got through three enjoyable stories before it got too hot and muggy for me to continue sitting out there.


I’m going to make some lunch and then get started on the next story, which I have been thinking about all morning. At some point, I need to get the house cleaned up a bit, but I don’t want to put off starting this next story for too much longer.
