Well, not exactly.
This project, as mentioned in the last post, has ended.
But with such a full heart, today I am *delighted* to announce the next iteration of my writing journey — a promo site for what *I hope* will become my first published novel (the first published essay coming last summer, thanks to the good folks at The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature // see here).
New to — or perhaps, previously removed from — my work?
Want a quick intro or update?
My manuscript, a work of upmarket commercial fiction set in the New American South, is the first of a three-part series examining the power of radical empathy.
As of Summer 2022, it has gone through “beta reads” with some truly brilliant minds. The result is that I have many, many edits ahead of me. And then I will be entering the world of publishing.
Interested in following along?
Keep up with the Dirty Delicious series online — and hopefully later in print!
Want to know how you can help?
Please send all the prayers and good vibes you’ve got.
Or if you know someone who’s willing to do some meaningful industry talk, send them this way. I’m not afraid to admit I’m new to this world … and could use some pointed guidance or direction for how to best navigate within it.
Meanwhile, thank you (!!) to every person who has genuinely seen and supported me. Many of you have done this without agenda. It’s made all the difference in my multi-year ride of a lifetime.
I can’t wait to celebrate with you when we achieve even a modicum of success in what’s next.
And because we could all use a little more cheese …. life’s too short to sit on the sidelines, folks.
Get out there and chase your dreams!
