To remedy that, here is a 13 minute video of me reading part of a chapter. I look forward to returning to live readings in the future!Continue reading “A Reading from Tree of Good & Evil…Virtually”

Guest Post: Poetry Tea-Time!
I’m guest-posting over on be, mama. be about a ritual we have in our house called Poetry Tea-Time. For those of you who are intimidated by poetry and fearful I’m about to break out some Emily Dickinson on you, breathe easy. Although at one time I thought I’d pursue poetry, and not fiction, it becameContinue reading “Guest Post: Poetry Tea-Time!”
Book Club: Wilsonville, AL
In the past I’ve posted about attending book clubs on Facebook, but it occurred to me that I should take a moment and post here, too!

First Review on NetGalley!
My publisher forwarded my first review posted on NetGalley today and it is a good one! (To put it simply, NetGalley is a site publishers use to give booksellers, librarians, reviewers digital access to books.) I know not everyone will like Trespassers – I’m trying to remind myself of that all the time – becauseContinue reading “First Review on NetGalley!”
The Size of the Effort
Last month I opened a box that had just been delivered expecting a gift for my youngest who turned four. Instead, I was quite surprised to see it was a box of books. MY books, or more specifically, my Advanced Reading Copies (ARCs) which I, or a publicist, send out to reviewers. I wish IContinue reading “The Size of the Effort”
