AMAZING NEWS: 5/3/20 – Screen Doors on Submarines Edition

SPECIAL NOTE:  AmazingCon is coming June 12-14, an online convention featuring readings from over 40 authors, writing workshops and discussion panels.  Registration is FREE, but registration is required for attendance.  Details are forthcoming (we’re working as fast as we can) and a website devoted to the convention – – is currently live but is currently a place-holder.  So hang on just a little longer for more details.


OTHER SPECIAL NOTE (and mini-editorial):  As some state Governors – influenced by political agendas rather than facts and science – attempt to return their states to some version of “normalcy” by relaxing lockdown restrictions, it is VERY important to remember that “the economy” does not matter to people who are dead.  Despite whatever your local social distancing regulations may be, please maintain good safety practices.
