Seems very quiet in here. What is everyone doing this summer? Writing? escaping to the wilds. I know +Pamela Beason is out there on water and hills. I'm getting ready to go English Encampment on San Juan Island. July 20 and 31st, but I'll set up before that. the 100th anniversary of the national parks will make it extra fun.

If anyone is going to Terry Persun's workshop in Burlington next Thursday and wants to carpool, let me know.

Thank you to Jennifer Karchmer and her insightful conversation with me on her radio podcast Whatcom Wordsmith, which airs on KMRE Radio 102.3 FM and streamed from her website, jenniferkarchmer.com. The interview will air in early June so keep checking in, I will post the date and time.

We talked about "Smallest Bird", poetry, performing, and realized we had a lot more in common than we thought. It was a lot of fun, it was like talking over coffee and cocktails.

Kate helped build my book. She's a guru. See it on her website.

Hi friends. I'm new to WWP and would love feedback on securing book events at Barnes & Nobles. Our genre is intimate life challenges and loss, and our first eight anthologies were published in December. I approached our local B&N about doing a book signing, and was told that death and loss doesn't sell, but sci-fi does. Any thoughts on the best way to approach this with bookstores hesitant to cover such a subject? Thank you. :)

I'm looking for two beta readers to give my genre-bender novel a general read through in February. It's the Greco-Roman myth Eurydice and Orpheus set in modern day Seattle with a quantum physics twist. So ideally the readers would be interested in magic realism, humor, Greco-Roman characters, and metaphysics, especially sound healing.

I don't have time in my schedule to join a writers group or exchange manuscript reads at this time. However, I will say that this novel offers an enjoyable read with plenty of plot twists and the character Pandora is represented by a sassy red-head gamine. In fact, I'm having trouble editing it because I keep getting caught up in the story which is out there a bit.

There's a discussion going elsewhere about an email people have received that starting in early February, readers will see some sort of tag saying that the book has typos or format problems. Indie writers feel that this will hurt them more than errors on the Big 5 . Readers tend to ignore errors there. Have you heard this?

Nothing more exciting than trying to get a cover for your novel. .Started the day with this, but really like the second (the boat. theyre' out of order) I may have a ghost image of a women in the rain shadow to the right of the boat. Comments please. Of course, I'll have the 2013 Chaucer 1st place category winner on it.
