Finished the book

I just shipped this thing. I started it in Vermont on May 18, 2011, so it's been almost exactly nine months. I think it has more of a chance of being accepted than the last one, since it's much more in my usual line. Doesn't have a title yet, I call it the Mexico book. It's set in coastal Michoacan and it's about the cartels, and Mexico and culture and history and mixed heritage people, the usual. We shall see.

The writing course I taught at Sedona went pretty well, I thought, although it was something of a strain to get to the place. We're thinking of trying to organize a course over Skype, to pull more people in and make it easier for me to do, although it's never going to be like the real thing.

I'll be on Caroline Casey's radio show, Visionary Activist, tomorrow, Thursday, February 23, at 2pm, PST. KPFA in San Francisco. It streams on their website, if you can't listen live.
