Story Round-Up: Features in The Herald-News, Oct. 30 through Nov. 4

The proof is in! A couple of tweeks, and Bertrand and the Lucky Clover will be available for purchase, most likely in a week.

Hoping to upload Cornell Dyer and the Missing Tombstone this weekend.

And I'll be doing some preparation on WriteOn Joliet's mic night in December.

Still, the main goal for Saturday is work on Before the Blood, especially since last Saturday was so productive.

Here's this week's work summary:

First, the non-bylined work: the health, faith, and arts and entertainment calendars. Three of them can be found at the link below. Gotta Do It, runs each Sunday and often stays on the home page throughout the week.

Feature briefs for Tuesday (health), Thursday (faith), Friday (Arts and Entertainment), and Sunday (People) are also edited (texted and photos) by the lady of this blog, but only the stories have bylines.

I also put together an extra calendar, a listing of area craft fairs for 2016:

Another option: I do post the briefs and calendars on Twitter during the week, so you're welcome to follow me at @Denise_Unland61.

Thank you for reading The Herald-News.
