I've been kind of quiet on the blog front lately, posting only sporadically and commenting even less. But I've been reading a lot.
I've really enjoyed following Patry Francis on her journey with the publication of her debut novel The Liar's Diary. Lucky me, I even was in the right place at the right time to win a signed copy from her!
In case you missed it, The Canadian Writers Collective has featured a different post about love each day in February, with special guest writers like H.E. Eigler, Lisa Ling, Joseph Young, Ellen Meister, and many many others.
Beginning March 1, check out the Writer Profile Project by Kelly Spitzer. Kelly says: "Each profile will consist of approximately ten questions posed to writers at various stages in their careers. During the series, you will meet editors of literary magazines, novelists, poets, and a wide variety of up and coming authors in all genres. I expect the series to run through the end of the year, so check back often for new profiles." I'm looking forward to the interviews and to reading the work of all Kelly's featured writers. Look for my own profile (as Ann Walters) in a couple of months.
