Some news: D and I interviewed and filmed an interview with Joanna Beth Tweedy author of the novel The Yonder Side of Sass and Texas. She discussed her novel and finding a publisher as well as the use of dialect/patois in her fiction. Also we discussed her founding of the Quiddity International Literary Journal and Public Radio Program. We should have that edited and up on the LLR website in a week or so.
