As requested, a shameless tour of five years

It may be because it usually takes me about an hour to tell the tale of what I often call my unorthodox journey to the published land, but I’ve fielded many requests for a brief and visual overview of the odyssey. “Put something on YouTube!” is a regular refrain at readings. So, in a spasm of self-indulgence, there now is such an offering. This is really just an animated PowerPoint presentation we pulled together against the backdrop of Jon Schmidt‘s great piece of music, Winter Serenade (which, incidentally, opens and closes each episode of the podcast version of TBLP).

My thanks to Mike Edgell who helped turn it into a video.

    P.S. I get excited every time I see the cover of “The Best Laid Plans” beside the new one for “The High Road” … must be the cookies! I’ll be looking forward to the podcasts, but even more to reading it in print.
