Goodbye, Kirkus

So it seems that Kirkus Reviews and Editor & Publisher are ceasing operations. Such is the nature of the magazine business these days. I feel for the professionals who are losing their jobs. It's not a great moment to be searching for employment, especially if you're a print journalist.

From a personal standpoint, I'm also bummed since Kirkus was planning a short feature on me for an upcoming issue. I'd been wondering why the writer hadn't followed up after our initial interview. Now, sadly, I understand.
