First issue of Fine Lifestyles Regina edited by me!

I know, I know, I’ve got a million things to blog about and I will get to them (Banff, PureSpec, the state of Magebane, First Sentences I Wrote Today, etc.). But for now, this will have to do: it’s the cover for the first issue of Fine Lifestyles Regina that I edited. I just saw …

I’m the new editor of Fine Lifestyles Regina

Right after yesterday’s morning writing session at Atlantis Coffee, I met with the publishers of Fine Lifestyles Regina, a thick, glossy, free-circulation, advertising-packed magazine that has now published two issues, each of which contained a story by me–the first about chef Rob Fuller, and the second about artist Victor Cicansky. They’ve had a different editor …

It went very well…it also went on for an hour and a half and produced five single-spaced pages of notes. I now have a couple of months to rewrite the whole thing and …
