I’m on a roll. I swear, it’s almost scary. Today I received a message that MARY accepted my creative nonfiction piece “Eating”‘ for their next issue. Thanks so much, MARY. Can’t wait to see the issue. Then this happened: The good-looking Fed Ex man brought four boxes of the final copies of Dolls Behaving Badly.… Read More My books!, and another acceptance
