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.

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.
