Arts Festival Keeping Me Busy

I am still a full time potter, and I am still making my living by making pots. This weekend I am at the Utah Arts Festival, selling both my books and my pots. It has been fun to have so many folks come in to my booth who have read my books.

After finishing the writing of book three, I have done nothing but make pots for the past few weeks to get ready for this show. I have been getting up early and working until midnight or later every night to get ready, but it paid off. I have lots of wonderful pots to fill my booth. I am excited to get back to writing though. I should have my manuscript back from my editor on Monday so I will go through that next week and I plan to begin layout the following week. I think things will take off quickly after that. I am really excited about the third book. The stories from this one have resounded in my mind over and over again over the last few weeks and I am excited to share them with all of you.

I am looking for an agent. If any of you have any suggestions, I am all ears.

I am suggesting to all my readers that you will get the most out of this third book if you re-read the first and second ones before jumping into the final book. There are lots of details that will make this more meaningful if you do.

I've got to go get ready for the day. I'll write more later. Cheers

Ben, way to stay busy. Especially if you are making art. Thanks again for your inspiring words. Our art staff at Syracuse high are proud Neiderbipp supporters and are also all of us bluegrass fans. If you havn't heard of Punch Brothers you should check them out. I just saw them the other night late on UEN.
They will be in salt lake Aug 9th.
Keep up the good work Bishop! Patiently waiting for "Becoming", Gregg batt
