Conversations at the Wartime Cafe anthology and marathon reading

I snuck a peek at a copy of the Conversations at the Wartime Cafe anthology (edited by Sean Labrador y Manzano) and it's gorgeous. I'm honored to be among so many great writers, writers who not only convinced me to finally write about my experiences in NY around the time of 9/11 - despite my cynicism - but writers who are capable of restoring one's faith in the act and art of writing itself.While that may seem heavy-handed, I stand behind it because it's true.

Check it!
