FLOYD GETS PUBLISHED

RLB Hartmann, the editor at Wombania, has just had her book Floyd and the Traveling Yard Sale published by Possum Hollow Press. Although there isn't a single Wombie in the book, it still managed to make the Wombies' Top Ten Books for 2005 list. Floyd is an entertaining look at life in the Southern USA from the perspective of a young girl growing up with some very eccentric friends and relatives. You can read a short pdf preview here.
