An excerpt from Odds and Endings:
A Special Odds and Endings Welcome to Our Newest Writer-in-Residence: EllaJane Cole!
Chris had never heard of EllaJane, but that wasn’t unusual. The resident was often a real up-and-comer, and the year spent at Odds and Endings made all the difference. He was normally delighted to play a small role in the launch of a new powerhouse author like his Auntie had before him.
Encouragement, feedback for readings and sometimes works-in-progress. Group lunches and dinners, helping the writer discover and love their home for the year.
But this year, Chris hoped to play more than a supporting role.
He hoped to be part of making it all happen.
For the first time, Chris was going to enter The Contest.
