"A no-hitter in #NewYork on the #FourthofJuly ! Now what’s more American than that?"
Barry Svrluga, author of THE GRIND, shares the history of baseball on July 4th on the #PenguinBlog !

How are YOU celebrating #IndependenceDay ?
Thirty-two years ago, when baseball was still inarguably the national pastime, the New York Yankees hosted the Boston Red Sox at old Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. The temperature soared into the 90s. Neither team was headed to the playoffs. Yet 41,077 fans found their way there, by foot or subway or car or bus, into the park just over the Harlem River from Manhattan. It was the Fourth of July.

Bria Sandford, Associate Editor for Portfolio Books, Sentinel, and Current Books shares some of her favorite +Penguin Classics US titles in her June ‪#‎StaffPicks‬! What are your favorite Classics?

Bria's favorites include EXCELLENT WOMEN by Barbara Pym, 
Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset, SELECTED STORIES by E.M. Forster, The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson, and more!
Bria Sandford is an associate editor for Portfolio, Sentinel, and Current. In her spare time she reads about the Puritans and talks about New Hampshire.   Excellent Women by Barbara Pym At a glance, you might think the story of Mildred Lathbury, a young single woman in post-war London, would be a cozy little read and nothing more, but you’d be wrong. Under the surface of this rather conventional story of romantic near-misses, there’s an undercurr...

+Sean Runyon It's good to get your stuff published because you establish your Date of Authorship. So legally you wrote it and when. Then you can sell the rights to use what you wrote. And don't get suckered into selling "All Rights" because you can never claim you wrote it - They will have the Rights of Authorship.
I took a poem to a Notary and got the stamp once.
Steely Dan said - "Send it out in a letter to yourself."
Find a good book on legalitys.

Books are one of her favorite things, and she loves surrounding herself with them. But boy, are they heavy when you’re moving to a new apartment!   Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D.

For me, it's late night.

At late night writing, after having a sleep, the inner muse from within me uses to bless me with so unique creative writing that I never have to cut/omit the writing later on.
