cover girl

Lookie! My first cover story.
I didn't want to jinx it, so I didn't talk about it. It has been in the works for months.

I can't tell you how excited that I am and I'm sure I'll bore you with lots of photographs of paper boxes and other goofiness.

The story is about house concerts. Which is just that, a concert in a house. Read all about here.
Read the companion piece: how to host a house concert here.

It's a whopping 3500 words, which is a ton for me to write in third person. Most of the stuff that I write for NUVO runs in the 300-ish range. My Gazette column is often 1500 to 2000 words written in first person, which I find much easier to crank out.

My dear brother-in-law edited the piece, thanks Ron!
And Jolie, thanks for calling after you saw a copy - that made it real.


[And just 'cause I'm showing off, I also wrote this piece for the same issue: Ryan Bingham. He's one talented young guy. Between his appearance on Conan O'Brien last week and my exciting schedule of meetings and spreadsheets we couldn't coordinate a phone interview.]

So now I can go around and say stuff like, "My good friend Nora S., she writes for Nuvo. We went to grade school together."

I've never had a name to drop before. This is very exciting.

Congratulations!!! Author, Author!

Nora, You continue to impress us all! We are proud of our friend.

I enjoyed the article and was reminded of my first coffeehouse visited in 1963. It was a place in Oklahoma City called The Brick and to applaud the entertainers you would snap your fingers.

Soon you'll be interviewed on some big tv show and then we won't be able to get a call in to you because your agent is guarding your privacy and you'll say you don't remember who Cliff Morrow is.
How Dare you. :)
