Just Two Things

Not a lot to report today--just two quick things.

I blogged on New Authors' Fellowship yesterday. Apparently, my most attention-getting post yet. The comments piled up quickly, and a couple of people mentioned they'd be linking to the post on other blogs. Wow. I'm not even sure what to say to that! I was only expressing my views on the way Christian writers seem to choose camps and war over what kind of Christian writing is the "right" kind. If you'd like to read it, here's the link: http://newauthors.wordpress.com/2011/06/07/put-down-your-sword-and-write/

A fellow writer, Jeff Chapman, emailed me to let me know the Table of Contents for the There Was a Crooked House anthology had been posted on the Pill Hill Press Forum. Looks like my story, "Cat Call," made first position, followed immediately by Jeff's story, "The Crooked House of Coins." I'm not sure if that "means" anything, or the order was random or whatever, but it's still rather cool. Looks like the release date will hopefully be sometime in July. Here's the full list of stories and authors:

A belated congratulations, Kat! Please tell us when the antho comes out.
Re the position of your story, I think I've heard that first and last position are the best ones.

Thanks, Sherry. I remember from speech class in college that first and last are what people remember. We'll see :).
