Hooray!  More Price!  Non-fiction... interesting.  I left the bookstore over a year ago to get down to the business of writing. I have a little primer on Appalachian folk magic that is in the final editing stage and should (with any luck) go to the publisher in a week or so. Being published locally so the turn-around should be quick. I don't know why I don't have your blog bookmarked but will do that. How's Ruth?  Love, b
