Jessica Handler (If Jessica’s post isn’t up yet, please check back later. I’ve got to post this and head to the airport to pick up my daughter, granddaughter, and son-in-law, who are flying in from Denver!)
Thanks for participating, ladies! I’m looking forward to seeing who you tagged for next Wednesday!
It’s been fun watching posts by authors who were all “tagged” by others. One of my favorites showed up yesterday:
“My Next Big Thing,” from my Oxford friend, Julie Cantrell. Julie writes about the sequel to her best selling novel, Into the Free. The sequel is called When Mountains Move, and it’s set to release this September.
Having been away for almost a month, I spent some time last night opening all the mail that stacked up during February. And making a wonderful “to read” stack with the writing publications that arrived, including:
Creative Nonfiction Journal’s Winter Issue (47) which has a great interview with Cheryl Strayed and Elissa Bassist, “How to Write Like a Mother#^@%*&,” (You can read it here.)Lee Gutkind talks about women writers in the creative nonfiction field in “What’s the Story?” Also included in this issue is an excerpt from Joe Bonomo’s new book, This Must Be Where My Obsession With Infinity Began, the first release by Orphan Press. Orphan Press is a new small press started by writer Kristen Iversen and artist Greg Larson. Their first book is being released this week, thanks, in part, to the success of the Kickstarter project. (Can’t wait to get my free Orphan Press t-shirt for contributing.)
Also in my mail stack were the latest issues of Poets & Writers, Writer’s Digest, and The Missouri Review! I’ll share jewels from those treasures another time. It was so hard to leave my writing retreat at the beach, and arriving home to these treats helped!
If you’ve read other authors who are doing the blog hop, please let me know who they are…. Leave a comment and a link, if you’d like. And as always, THANKS SO MUCH FOR READING. (don’t know why these last 3 paragraphs are in BOLD … and I can’t make that go away – thank you, WordPress.)
