LJ Katrina charity

Went to the little farmer's tent that's set up down the road to buy fresh veggies. It's very charming, there's a little old man who brings out the produce from the back of his van. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy that I'm supporting a little family farm. Of course, fosteronfilm then had to quip up, suggesting that the little old man is just the front to a big corporate farm masquerading as a mom 'n pop business, and they hire friendly old men to hawk their wares. I "tbthhhed" my hubby and relished the sweet, plump goodness of the ripe tomatoes.

Check out what archer904 is doing! For every comment made to his post, he's donating a dollar to Red Cross Katrina relief aid. A wonderful and generous gesture! Go forth and comment.


Writing Stuff

Received yesterday:
- My contrib. copy of the Embark to Madness anthology. My story, "Perfidious Beauty," is the lead one. Suhweet.
- The contract from Apex for "Oranges, Lemons, and Thou Beside Me." Signed and mailed back.
- Rejection from Roaring Brook Press (via my agent) on my middle-grade novel. Sigh. I would like someone to buy that now. Yes. Publishing voodoo, do! Pleeease?
