Things you can buy or borrow or steal
Self-plugging is partly what a blog is/can be for, right? I'm in the new Da Capo Best Music Writing, THANK YOU JT LEROY (whoever you are really). I've felt like a bridesmaid for years and am really happy that I'm in there! Petty status-seeking, maybe, but I'm pleased as punch -- and especially because it's the first thing I wrote after Bebe came, and it's about her (well, like many mama writings, about me via her.....)
Also, The Rose and the Briar is soon to be available in paperback. Don't buy it for my essay. But it for the one by Rennie Sparks, which blows me to hell and back.
