FP Newsletter July 9 - 17, 2015: Ballad is Back and Marita Will Peform Lindbergh
I am slipping gingerly back into virtual worlds activities after several weeks when The SL Decades Festival ate my time and a week of hospitalization (Unrelated. I think.). Tomorrow will bring my first reading from Escape From Pig Hill in three weeks, so we have some catching up to do. Monday, I'll be hosting Marita Decosta, as she begins a four-week stint on Book Island. Marita will be reading Anne Morrow Lindberg's A Gift From The Sea. And Saturday, I'll be back at Circe's in SL for the first time in a year or more. I'll be sharing some new poems and one of the first stories I published, Ermengarde The Expansive. If you are unfamiliar with Ermengarde, now is the time to make her acquaintance. She is the princess Disney should have created decades ago and still hasn't.
