If you've read anything published in Harpur Palate over the last few years, you've read the work of T.J. Forrester, whose stories have appeared in issue 6.2 ("The Revolving Door") and 8.1 ("Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail"). T.J.'s debut novel, Miracles, Inc., will be published by Simon & Schuster on February 1st, and we are doubly proud to learn that his collection of stories, Black Heart on the Appalachian Trail, is set to be released next year. You can learn more about T.J. and order copies of his book through his website, and, if you want to learn more about the type of inter-office dancing we do each time we learn one of our contributors has a forthcoming book, you can ask for a sample jig if/when you see us at this year's Association of Writers & Writing Programs Conference, held this year in Washington, D.C.
Come watch us shake for quarters!

We're excited to say that issue 10.2 is off to the printer and getting churned out as I type this. So, fingers crossed, we should have it ready to go for AWP next month. If you're going to be there, swing by the HP table, say hi, and pick up a copy.
Also, a big congrats to issue 10.1 contributor Nick Lantz upon winning the GLCA 2011 New Writers Award for his first collection We Don't Know We Don't Know (Graywolf). Nick's a hell of a nice guy and can write like no tomorrow and we were lucky enough to publish three of his poems.
Finally, we're in the process of joining the hip crowd: a test run of our new online submission manager is set to go up in the very near future. No promises on its reliability or our interweb savviness, but we're hoping to make the transition for 11.1. Stay tuned.
