1. A visit to the new Scarsdale Library Writers Center, where I had the honor of presenting the first lecture in the center’s Professional Series. The topic: “Mapping the Changing Publishing Marketplace.” Thanks so much to my gracious hosts and to the great crowd that turned out.
2. The arrival of my contributor copy of the 2014 Novel and Short Story Writers Market. (The volume includes my article on “Habits of Highly Successful Short-Story Writers,” with sage insights and advice from Roxane Gay, Michael Griffith, and Midge Raymond.)
3. Publication of my article, “10 Ways to Celebrate Jewish Book Month,” on The Forward‘s “Arty Semite” blog.
