Saw Byrd Baylor this evening Antigone's Books in Tucson. She was the inspiration for THE CLAY REMEMBERS. The title comes from her children's book, WHEN CLAY SINGS. She signed MY book on her epigraph page, saying, "I read this. It's wonderful." (I made sure she was one of the first to receive a book when it was published.) I'm stoked!!

COMING SOON: TALES OF OUR LIVES is a two-volume series (Fork in the Road and Reflection Pond) edited by award-winning author and memoir coach Matilda Butler.

TALES OF OUR LIVES: FORK IN THE ROAD includes 42 award-winning stories in 6 parts and TALES OF OUR LIVES: REFLECTION POND includes 39 award-winning stories in 8 parts.

I'm happy to announce that my memoir piece, WHY DIDN'T YOU CATCH ME?, was selected for inclusion in the Reflection Pond anthology. It's a reflection on my sister's suicide and will be familiar (in an earlier version) to members of my family. I was previously honored to be included in an earlier anthology, SEASONS OF OUR LIVES: SPRING, in 2014, with a memoir piece about Nellie Quinn, my childhood alter ego. (If you want to cheat, you can read it in its entirety using the Look Inside feature on Amazon.)

TALES OF OUR LIVES will be available for Kindle for $3.99, but will be offered for $.99 each for 53 hours beginning 8 am PST January 8, 2016.

Hi, Markie, Thanks for the invite. BTW, I have preordered your next book and am looking forward to it. Will this group collaborate to help each other with our Street Team and marketing needs? I just finished reading Tim Grahl's book, Book Launch Blueprint (a few minutes ago, to be exact). I found it extremely helpful with good ideas. He did mention the importance of a Street Team. You're on the ball.

So many of you (and others) gave me great feedback on my cover designs. So here are my two final (?) ideas. +Betsy Malloy was the one who said she wondered why I didn't use brown, since the word "Clay" referred to soil. Someone else, maybe not from this group, wanted me to keep the quotes that were at the top of some of the blue designs. I want to keep the mountain background, but am thinking it may need to be a little more subtle--using some transparency or more heavily masking it so it isn't so busy looking. (I also need to go out to the site and take a new picture--this one is not good resolution.) The text is a little different on the two versions here. I'm still working on that, so any comments on which one might work better will be appreciated. Thanks y'all!!

Here are three cover designs for my novel, The Clay Remembers, which I hope to release by the end of the year. Please give me feedback on which design you like the best.

What do you think? The short piece is from his mane. The rawhide I used to hang it was the piece of rawhide Linda Murphy gave me when Paco's reins broke. Thanks for the weaving.
