Please pardon the long absence. Big, exciting, shake-ups are happening in the Dupire household these days. They're positive, for which I'm grateful, but they're rather time consuming, and require nothing less of a complete over-haul of our lives. I'll be able to share this, I hope, within the next two weeks.
As for writing, I'm busily tapping something up for the Surrey International Writer's Conference (www.siwc.ca), as I do every year. Unfortunately, due to lack of entrants over the last several years, all but one of the categories (The Storytellers Award) has been discontinued. ALAS! Poetry, Non-fiction, and (my favorite) Writing for Young People will no longer be showcased in the contest.
Something I am, happily, able to share, is the work of NoLongeraTheory on his Youtube site. He found my book god-thing: and other weird & worrisome tales from a review posted by Diana Gabaldon, and he wanted to produce videos and read-alouds of some of the stories
I was delighted to give him permission and enjoyed watching what he came up with. I think they're lovely representations of my stories "Bugaboo" and "Saved" both of which you can watch by clicking the links.
Thanks so much, NoLonger. ;)
Happy reading, everyone!
