I am sad to say my that my dear friend Colleen Black, one of the "atomic city girls," passed away this morning. Happy to say that she led a beautiful life and will be missed by many. You can read my remembrance of Colleen by clicking here:
Colleen making her NPR debut. Into the lobby of Greenfield Assisted Living stepped a vision of sassy Christmas cheer. She was bedazzled in glitz, animal prints and smiles with a blinking holiday-light necklace draped around her neck and antlers sprouting from her head. Now burned into my memory like some nuclear-powered yule log, this was my first glimpse of the force of nature that was Colleen Black. Colleen entered my life as a ...

Great take on husband latest book by +Joseph D'Agnese.
 
BLOGS ON - "Borgo" Provides a New Point of View on the Procedural 

When an author attempts to pen a police procedural in omniscient point a view, readers have reason to take pause. After all, a moribund crime fiction subgenre written in a technique that fell out of favor ages ago could signal that the author is exceptionally foolhardy -- or (should the title somehow succeed) exceptionally talented. With "The Marshal of the Borgo," Joseph D' Agnese more than falls into the latter category.

Good read for the traditionally employed and freelancers alike. Thinking a little negative might help keep your bank balance positive.

Hello friends,

Just a few days left to help out kids and their families by sponsoring me for the Mountain of Words Write-A-Thon to support the work of Asheville Writers in the Schools and Community. This non-profit organization changes lives with creativity and literacy by connecting writers with children and their families through innovative programs offered in both English and Spanish.

Communication and creative expression are crucial to success in both school and life. Help these kids and this wonderful program out if you can by making your donation here:
https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=C468ZNWHHBSFC

Thanks,
Denise

So happy to see my local bookstore here in Asheville, Malaprop's, on the receiving end of some of James Patterson's indie bookstore moolah!

Mr. Patterson sells heaps of books and makes piles of money. Now he is sharing the wealth with independent booksellers.

Waiting to depart from the Atlanta airport. Pilot just walked out and said, no kidding: "The plane won't start. It's too cold." They are awaiting help from maintenance, which I am now envisioning as a couple guys with jumper cables. #ATL #SnowMyGod

This is, it appears, the end. The Manhattan Project's K-25 plant, once the largest building in the world, comes completely down on Thursday.

It was once the world's largest building under one roof, but on Thursday, federal officials expect to complete demolition work at the K-25 Building in west Oak Ridge.

If you care about your community, you should care about shopping local. If you care about the economy, you should care about shopping local. If you care about books and the people who write them, you should care about shopping local.
