This week marks the “official” release of Measuring Time & Other Stories from Wiseblood Books. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, I’ll be at the Catholic Imagination Conference at Loyola in Chicago promoting the book at my publisher’s table. Folks on my book-launch team have already begun posting about the book on social media, and reading their words gave me encouragement.
Today is the last post of 12 discussing the stories in my forthcoming Measuring Time & Other Stories (out in September from Wiseblood Books). For the past months, I’ve been sharing the composition history of these stories that I’ve worked on and lived with for years. I’ve enjoyed journeying back in time and reflecting on these stories, and I’m excited for readers to enter the fictional worlds I’ve created.
It’s mid-August in Central Texas, which means that it’s even hotter than it was when last I wrote in this space. At the end of the previous week, I finished my final edits on the final proof of Measuring Time & Other Stories (out next month from Wiseblood Books). And today, I’m reflecting on one of my favorite stories in the book: “The Rez Fairy.”
