Last night I attended a fantastic reading at Café Fixx in Milwaukee, sponsored by Redbird- Redoak Writing. Director Kim Suhr hosted and nine writers, a cross-section of roundtable participants, all read excerpts from their works-in-progress. Carol Wobig, my dear friend, premiered the paperback version of her short story collection, Poached is not an Option, which will be available at Amazon with her current e version:

I received my copies of LOST IN THOUGHT magazine, issue 3, the journal for which I am fiction editor, and Kyle Schruder is editorial, designer/ publisher. It’s simply fine art in all senses. I highly suggest seeing for yourself.

You can peruse the sample copy and ordering info here:
