Well, revising going well. One chapter book getting the finishing touches before it makes it’s appearance on an editor’s desk. A picture book about a stomach that talks in major revision; slashing words, creating action plus tightening the rhythm and flow of words. It’s like losing a child or putting a baby up for adoption to cut the words you put into the manuscript with such care. But it must be done to sell a book. Starting to working an several new manuscripts for start of 2015. Hoping for the best.
Lily’s Lagniappe: Mardi Gras is winding down and the crazies will leave the state. The roads will be back to normal and the Krewes and Mardi Gras Indians will start planning for Mardi Gras 2016. But if you are in New Orleans on March 14th please sure to see the Mardi Gras Indians march one more time in the St. Joseph’s Day parade. The Italian heritage in New Orleans is well documented. The Indians march to honor that heritage.
