2. What am I doing in Brasov? I'm teaching ESL to children on poor farms outside the city, sorting through donated reading glasses, and getting quite a lot of writing related work done. I plan post a weekly round-up every Sunday, so check back if you'd like more details and photos.
3. I'm ten hours ahead of my friends and family on the west-coast of North America. That means I've practically lived my whole day before they start theirs. When I get up in the morning, it's still yesterday evening for them! Weird.
4. I bought a Kindle Touch before I left on this trip. Not only did I want/need the convenience that comes with carrying an entire library in your purse, as a writer I wanted to use the text to speech feature to listen to my manuscripts, as an editing tool. I am AMAZED at how much easier it is to spot errors when you listen and read at the same time.
5. And last but not least, JARS OF CLAY is out! It's FREE on itunes, kobo, sony and .99 on Amazon. See side bar for links. (Sorry, B & N is so slow for non-residents, but hopefully it will be there soon.)
I'm really exciting to see it out there finally. I spent over 11 years getting this novella, and volume 2, Broken Vessels, out there.
I'll leave you with a sample first chapter. I hope you enjoy it!
