Book Update II

I've decided to forge ahead and put out a collection of New York stories similar to Skipping Through the Graveyard in My Puke-Stained Suit.  Why not.  I don't think I can do the same for my college years, although this book will dip back into my college years to show the roots of how I decided to move to New York way back when.

Same set-up: loose collection of pieces, sorted by year, pulling from my various published and unpublished sources.  Along with new stuff.  I can already see I need to fill in a few blanks about my decade in the Bronx.

This will take a few months to pull off: a lot of editing.  I know how much work this is from last time, so I would guess late summer or the fall.  Possibly sooner if I get on top of this early and grind it out.

So, stay tuned.  I think this will be a good read.  A much different emotional landscape and set-up compared to growing up in a rural area in the 1970's.  But hopefully it will all make some kind of sense in the end.  And it would be nice if I could write here more often.  This is sheer laziness on my part: I'll work on it.
