"That's what fiction is for. It's for getting at the truth when the truth isn't sufficient for the truth."–Tim O'Brien
Dang It! @ Double Dang It!!
I file this under: The continuing trials and tribulations of a rookie author …
I’m visiting my hometown (Sutherlin, Oregon) next week to sign books, and a local paper, the Douglas County News, was going to publish my author profile/photo today but, alas, due to “technical difficulties” (according to a spokesperson at the paper), the profile did not get published. This qualifies as a “Dang It!” Nevertheless, I’d like to thank Trish Dias, a reporter for the DCN, for her hard work on the article. If you’d like to see the article, I’ve posted it on my About Page. (You’ll have to scroll down to find it.) You’re looking at the photo that didn’t get published, either. Double Dang IT!!
Hey Paul. Wish I could be in Sutherlin for the reading, but can’t make it. Thanks for the invite though. Also I meant to ask you; during your time teaching in Canby did you know a kid by the name of Terry Schmelling? Heck of a baseball player. He married my step daughter.
