I just signed the contract to produce my third collection of essays, whose title shall remain a state secret until the book is actually "live"! I'm really hoping to see this in print in time to have fun talking about it and selling it in Chicago at the Printers Row Lit Fest in early June.
In the meantime, here's a link to a sample chapter--"Full Circle" Just like the first two books, this new one will be a collection of my essays that have run in several places on the web.
It's recently dawned on me that just about everybody I know is walking around with a Kindle or a Nook in their purse instead of a paperback, so here's as good a place as any to mention that both Running with Stilettos (ebook) and Heck on Heels (ebook) are available in electronic format. The new book will be too. And as soon as I graduate from writing with a clay tablet and a papyrus reed, I may have to give that a try.
Though I still really like the feel of turning pages by hand. And it's really hard to autograph a Nook!
