Summertime and the Living is Easy

Spring has finally sprung here in the northland, as you can tell from the several missing posts in the blog. Actually, we went right from winter to summer: I had to delay planting my decorative bean plants until Sunday because Saturday's low was 28 degrees; today, I have my air conditioning on because it is 89 degrees. Ah, the wonder that is North Dakota weather!

Anyway, with planting/fishing/grilling season in full swing, it's time to switch to the summer posting schedule. New posts will appear at the first of each month now through August; the regular posting schedule will resume in September. There may be an occasional bonus post, but we'll have to see what the summer brings. You can subscribe to the blog and receive posts in your email if you'd like to be notified when new posts are available.

I haven't been writing much lately thanks to spring cleaning/spring planting (in addition to the bean vines, I picked up a pussy willow and a bittersweet to add to the yard to replace the bittersweet nightshade I removed for the safety of the dogs), but Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers will be available May 21st and includes my story: "Putting Together the Pieces." My comedy short, "Alecsander's Empire" will be available in the May/June issue of 69 Flavors of Paranoia, which should be up soon.

Have a great May, and I'll see you next month!
