One

In between your second helping of potato salad, or baked beans, or whatever, and your first burger off the grill, I thought I'd share a little personal good news.

I just found out New Michigan Press will be publishing my chapbook Exit Interview in their 2006 series. Which is totally cool, if I may say so.

A couple of months ago in a blog entry, I mentioned, offhand, a secret project. Exit Interview was it. I guess, in some ways, it's the precursor to whatever my third book becomes, a prelude, maybe.

At any rate, that's all the info I have now. Just wanted to share; I'm excited.

Oops, I forgot to introduce myself. I can't remember if we ever formally met, but I was at UA the same time you were. I studied your book in Sophia's class.

Anyways, congrats again! Great news...
