Enough about me

My pal Kim Reid's book No Place Safe got a great review in the August 6th issue of Publisher's Weekly! Yay Kim! Watch for it in October and watch for Kim here at The Pajama Gardener.

Lighthouse Writer's Workshop is hosting our 5th Annual Writer's Studio September 15-16. Tobias Wolff, author of This Boy's Life (and others), will be in town for several cool events. For more information, go here. For ticket prices, go here.

Two blogs I'm enjoying lately:

Iyan and Egusi Soup, the very inspiring and wonderful blog of writer Olufunke Grace Bankole.

Yarn Harlot, a hilarious blog about, of all things, knitting, which I don't do.

Both are excellent ways to pass time when you should be writing, but aren't quite there yet.

thank you so much for the mention! i'm honored. :)

i'll have to read about the lighthouse writer's workshop--this is the second time i've read about it in the last week. though i'm not near colorado at the moment, it's something to keep in mind.

Thanks Carleen! Waiting for that first review on the first book can be daunting, so I'm glad PW liked it. I'm looking forward to my Pajama Gardner interview.

Ah, Lisa, you have excellent taste! :-) I'll be stopping by your blog, and I'll look for you at the Tobias events!
