Latest on "The Temple of Air"

There is lots of interesting news about my wife Patty's book. Her short story collection, "The Temple of Air," was published nearly a year ago, and since then it has been a finalist in one big literary award (The Society of Midland Authors' fiction award) and the winner of another (University of Illinois' Devil's Kitchen Readers' Award). It's about to go into it's third printing, and the latest edition has a blurb on the front by no less a personage than Audrey Niffenegger, author of "The Time Traveler's Wife":


Yesterday, Patty posted an interview on her blog with Caroline Leavitt, the author of  "Pictures of You," which was a huge NYT best-seller recently.

But then Ms. Leavitt also published an interview with Patty on her blog, too. That's quite a coup. It's also a really good, in-depth interview, and is worth taking the time to read and find out a lot about the background to the book, Patty's working routine, and more. As Ms. Leavitt herself says in her introduction:
And I'm stealing her own author bio because anyone who has breaded mushrooms for a living is immediately interesting, right?
