My Short Story Collection

I’m thrilled to announce that Press 53 will be publishing my short story collection WOMEN UP ON BLOCKS in March of 2009. I’m so excited to be publishing with them–I love the work they’ve been putting out, and am thrilled to be added to their list. 🙂

    They seem like good folks to me. And I’ve got a few of their books by now, and tours will be a welcomed addition.

    I just looked for ordering information for your collection. Didn’t find it on Amazon yet, and tried Press 53 directly but also didn’t see a button to “buy” on the upcoming page. Did I miss something?

    And also: Where is it best to purchase the book? Would you prefer with the press or somewhere else (Amazon, local store, etc.).

    Let me know. I’ll check back here, or e-mail me.
