Funny in the Year 2316?

From the first day I started the project I was looking forward to this day - placing all the publications into a respected archive.

Sure, the book release was huge for me - four years in the making. But, dropping off all the materials for future generations to explore had been on my "must do" list.

Let me explain how it happened.

Big Award, Happy 2016 & Los Angeles!

Been a minute, or seven, since my last update.

I wanted to share a few things with you from the world of The Orbit Magazine Anthology as we start 2016 together.

Big Award!

The Award Seal Soon to Grace the Book Cover
It was announced today that the book is being honored as a Michigan Notable Book from 2016 from the Library of Michigan.

The program, since 1991, has spotlighted up to 20 books each year from Michigan authors or about Michigan. If you look at the list of great writers/books, from this year and the past, it's an honor for me as a first time author.

The Library of Michigan, which runs the archives of the State, is honoring the writers with a special event in April. From there, the Library will be working with local libraries around the state to bring in the authors of the books to talk about their work, their process, and other aspects of writing, during April, May, and June of this year. I hope to see more of this great state of ours, including the U.P. which I have not really visited since I was 6 years old, as part of the tour. You'll see dates for the events on this page as well as the book's Facebook page. So, please keep in touch.
