The new year has brought new opportunities. An interview on Spilling Ink, a podcast about the writing life. Revising and editing really can make or break a story. Decisions, decision, decisions. I personally go through countless edits on everything I write. Even the theater reviews I do, and that can be rough with such tight deadlines.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Halle Braswell, for The Grief Dialogues. The Dialogues is about creating a new conversation about death, dying, and the ways in which we accept this part of life and express our grief. My interview focused on Vegas Strong: A Charity Anthology (available on Amazon), a collection of short stories set in Las Vegas to benefit first responders. The anthology came about as authors, led by Crystal Perkins, looked for a way to contribute to helping our community heal after the horrific October 1 tragedy which so deeply affected our city. Halle is absolutely delightful. I’ll post the link when the interview has been posted to the website.
Of course, theatre kicks in again, and I’ll continue my reviews. Should you care to stay abreast, you’ll find them on Eat More Art! Vegas. My series, published with them, on the history of theatre in Las Vegas has seen a bit of resurgence, and some requests to continue with it. I have two more parts in draft mode, and one of my goals this year is to finish them.
Coming in March: I’ll be on a panel of three authors at the third annual A Novel Event, a fundraising luncheon for our local PBS station. Tickets are $50, and you can get them here: A Novel Event. If you enjoy public television, this is your chance to combine the joy of reading with your enthusiasm for the great programming the station brings.
