One of my early Fray stories has made its way into a new book. My California: Journeys by Great Writers (dig that, ma!) is a collection of stories from and about the state I call home, and I'm thrilled to see my story, The Nicest Person in San Francisco included in such fine company. The book will be released on June 15, but you can pre-order it today.
I urge you to pick up a copy because, in addition to all the fine writing you'll get to enjoy, you'll be supporting a good cause. All proceeds from the book will go to the California Arts Council, an organization that supports arts and writing programs in California schools, which was forced to suspend its programs in 2003 because of the budget crunch.
All the writers donated their work and the printer donated the first run to maximize the benefit of the book (more info here). Get your copy now!
This section is called Just a Thought. It's a blog where I post little pieces of what I'm thinking about at the moment. This page is an individual entry called “Good writing, good cause” that I wrote on 2 June 2004.
