I didn’t get a chance to blog yesterday because I was busy writing an installment for Money Walks, a serial novel that the Los Angeles Times is debuting this week. So the idea is to start a story and then let a group of writers each take turns telling a part of it. The first installment is by Mary McNamara; the second by Seth Greenland. I wrote the sixth installment, which will appear on Saturday. The final installment will be published on the eve of the Festival of Books.
