By the way...

You know how I was feeling kinda superstitious about changing the first line of The Short, Sad Life of Tooley Graham?

Well, thanks to opinions of trusted peers and following my gut instinct, I changed it back to the original.


I feel better.

(And my editor agrees.)

Hooray for gut instincts. That line would've bugged you FOREVER if you'd have changed it. You'd be entering bookstores with a blackout pen in your purse. Trying to slip into the Library of Congress with scissors and tape. Bribing librarians all over the world to edit on the sly. Making pot after pot of remorse soup.... :)
