Best wishes for a sparkling holiday season.
Remember, you can soon order your copy of Bylines Writer’s Desk Calendar. I have an essay in it this year, and always find it the most productive, uplifting way to remember to “be a writer” every week. The publisher worked hard through rain and snow and major snafus, and calendar orders are now being processed. Quantity discounts are available.
As usual, there are stories by 53 writers in Bylines. This year, writers are from 25 states, plus Ireland and the UK. The state with the most entries is Kansas, with 4; however, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Oregon and Oklahoma each have 3 entries. I’m one of the Illinois contributors and very excited to receive my copy.
