For those of you who weren't able to make it, I have more than enough potato salad/pulled pork/pie for a second party. If you're in the Western New York area, stop by and pull up a chair. I might even be able to scrape up some more sweet tea.

1. Bake 20 pies
2. Clean my entire house
3. Make salads/sweet tea/BBQ pork (yes, all caps)/everything else that goes into to cooking for one hundred and fifty people.
My little (no so little anymore) girl graduated last weekend and we're throwing her a party at the farm tomorrow.
I promise lots of pictures on Monday to make up for it.
Have a great weekend and pray for no rain for me!

I’m in a sad state in my life, I rarely read for pleasure anymore. Actually, that’s not entirely accurate; I get pleasure from many things I read. I guess the word I’m looking for is leisure. I never read anything unless I have a specific reason. And right now I'm reading the following:

So, what are we looking for? At Black and White we publish exclusively in *Ubooks; therefore we publish what works best with that format. Currently that means: picture books, flash fiction collections, poetry, short stories, and novellas. We will also publish full length novels, but their chapters need to be short and concise.
Genres: Again, I'm looking for what works with Ubooks. Suspense is good, as well as romance. Mystery and thrillers are great.Futuristic and Sci-Fi? Sure. Basically anything that will bring a reader back chapter after chapter, story after story. No erotica or occult, please.
Length: Doesn't matter. It can be a one page short story; that's okay, as long as it's well written. Voice and originality are what's important. Ubooks are original, therefore the stories displaying them should be as well. There are no rules, just very, very good stories.
How to submit: Email the first five (if there are five) pages of your story as well as a cover letter explaining what the story is about and your plans for it to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please also include your social media history, as this is very important for Ubooks. If you have a really amazing story I'd be willing to overlook the social media thing. That's what the marketing director is for.
Illustrators: Please forward me (email@example.com) up to five pictures of your work that you feel best captures your skills, as well as a letter describing your experience and social media history.
Musicians: Please forward samples of your work to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) as well as your experience and social media history.
*Ubook is a patent pending book format where the book is a video played at reading speed and enhanced with mood-stirring music.
