Literati!

I do not have an exceptionally large staff…(fill in your comments here______________)

Our purpose at A Word with You Press is to see that the vices of writers are exposed to the…oops!…  VOICES of writers are exposed to as wide a readership as possible. In some instances, this means prioritizing, as it did this past month, to see that Fred Rivera gets published. I am pleased to say that through your efforts our Kickstarter campaign to raise the funds to get 250 copies of Raw Man published has been successful, having reached 120% of our goal with 5 days to spare. (more on that in another post to come)

I had no idea how all consuming the effort would be, and, considering that I have a small staff (here is your second attempt at seventh grade humour___________), I have not given our current contest the attention it needs and that you have deserved.  Today I was to announce our finalists, and there are actually several stories still to be posted.  I will be posting those stories this week, starting later today, and announcing finalists later in the week.  But no more entries will be accepted after 6:00 pm today, Moscow time.

I am going to give our Victor Villasenor First Sentence contest a re-boot.  Details to follow later today, as I contend with the countdown of our campaign to get Raw Man into publication.

It is a glorious day, here in Moscow, the land of the double entundra.  We are on the road again!

Here is Gandalf wearing a cowboy hat!

    The day is glorious not just because of the weather but because people in this world like yourself, keep it turned on.

    That is the sweetest thing anybody in a mustache has ever said to me. Thanks Mike, and this damn near counts as a thorning: Mike donated over $400 to see that Raw Man gets published. Thank you, brother.

    Sometimes the need of the one outweighs the need of the many or few. “Raw Man” by Fred Rivera is such an occasion I’ll have Mr. Spock know. Illogical? The wise could care less. I applaud the efforts of the one who wrote, “Raw Man”, the many contributors (please do not list what I donated) and the few who make A Word With You Press. All is right with the universe it seems.

    I look forward to reading the final entries into A Word With You Press, whether my third prologue is included or not as well as the semi-finalist entries and finalist entries whether one of my prologues is included or not. We have much to be grateful for this first week in June and much to look forward to as family and friends who love the elegance of the written word. It is a priviledge to participate.

    Now can someone please tell me why Michael Stang looks so much like the former WWF wrestling champion, Randy Savage? “O, Yeah!” Now if only I could look more like Miss Elizabeth than Jack Benny. O, well!

    Thank you Michael. I can live with being compared to Miss Fanny Brice and/or Barbara Streisand playing Miss Fanny Brice.
