Speaking of Echelon Press

October 2, 2008

Conferee Gayle Carline, whose debut novel, Freezer Burn, is out next year from Echelon Press, posted on her own blog a nifty summary of what she walked away with from LA6’s “Intuitive Structure: Exploiting What You Know” workshop. It was conducted by Trai Cartwright, who joined us for the first time in Irvine, and, according to all the latest feedback, rocked the house.

In a nutshell, Gayle pretty much had a partial meltdown about her book, its sequel, all future books, and the state of American literature as defined by that Horace’s arse in Oslo (see previous post). Then she had a refreshing cocktail with us and all was again right with Irvine. Or at least as “right” as Irvine can get — which, frankly, is pretty extreme right, if you know what I mean.

Anyhow, read Gayle Carline’s blog here.



  1. After all, everything looks better after I w(h)ine a little!
