Whenever a conversation turns ugly or someone repeats the same thing several times, I recite poetry in my head. I don’t think it’s rude. People need to get their story out, but I usually grasp what they’re saying the first time they tell me. By the third time, Emily Dickinson and I are deep in conversation. At least internally.
That is my opening paragraph. I don't know if it will change -- I'm still waiting to hear back from my editors, but I wanted to get something concrete out there so that I can start developing some sort of interaction with people who will be interested in my book when it comes out this fall. What do you think?
All of my books are available at the Bold Strokes Books' website and other retail stores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.
