Book and Blog Updates and Public Apperances

Three quick updates to share: Book update: Over the weekend I finished a solid draft of Living with a Widower. I’m only like two months behind schedule on this but it’s finally to a point where I can start wedding story submissions with the chapters. If you submitted a story but haven’t heard back from me, don’t worry, you’ll hear from me one way or another soon.

Blog update: Until the aforementioned book and some other writing projects back on track, Widower Wednesday will be a monthly column, appearing the first Wednesday of each month. If you still need a Widower Wednesday fix, you can find links to my 2011 columns here and my 2012 columns here. Sometime this month I’ll create a master index of all my Widower Wednesday columns going back 2009. I’ll post a link on the blog when it’s up.

Where’s Abel Update: My public appearances are shaping up for the first half of 2013. If you happen to be in the area for any of these, feel free to stop by and say hello.
