Are you into symbolism?

You may be thinking, what the heck are you talking about?  Well, I'm going to be talking about the symbols used in writing.  You know, like the big S inside a triangle for Superman but, even more, about those objects placed in a story that represent greater meaning than the object itself.  I remember how dull I thought this symbol thing was when I took literature in high school and college.  I didn't really believe that a writer would add symbols to their story--not on purpose any way.  You may have thought that, too but, I warn you, you may be very surprised at what I have to say.  Check out my blog Sarah's Provocative Ponderings  on Thursday, September first.  Here is the tag to get there:
I hope you'll join me.

An Invitation To An Interview

Joanna Aislinn was kind enough to offer me an interview and today it's posted on her web page.  I invite you to come on over and see what I have to say.  I also have an excerpt from Harmonica Joe's Reluctant Bride

I hope you'll be kind enough to come by and maybe even leave a little comment for me.
Oh.  One more thing--The Violin is now under a new contract with Publishing by Rebecca J. Vickery.  I'm very happy for that and I can't wait to see its new cover.  It may take some time since it hasn't gone through re-edits yet.
In the meantime, I hope you have a wonderful day.  The sun is shining here in spite of congress and Wall Street.
