I started this blog and then let it go for a few weeks because we were getting ready to go on vacation. Well, we are now On Vacation. Soon we will be back to every day life and I hope to be more present.
Before I get back to all the vacationing, I have some updates:
First, Led by Mercy: I have been contacted by a university press to which I submitted my manuscript and they have said they want to publish it. I am very excited and very pleased. It also means that I will have a lot of work to do in July and early August to address some “issues,” one of which is the title. Needs to be more “sexy.” I like Led by Mercy, but hopefully I can come up with something more to jazz it up a tad. As a former bookseller, I understand the importance of a good title on the spine. As someone who trolls libraries and have made the acquaintance of a few catalogers, I also understand the importance of a searchable title.
Second, teaching: I have been given a class for the Fall semester and I am beyond happy. It is a course I have not taught before so that means a lot of work to prepare. Hopefully this also means that I will post about teaching in the future.
With these two developments, I will be quite busy.
