I'm guest blogging over at Brenda Janowitz' place today. Though I know you don't spend your time wondering what it's like to be me, but maybe wondering what it's like to have a novel optioned has crossed your mind? If so, read my guest post. And if you STILL haven't scored a copy of Orange Mint and Honey yet, I'm giving away one over there (contest goes until April 15).

Goodreads' Literary Fiction by People of Color Book Club is reading Orange Mint this month. Join the group and join the discussion.

In other news, more blurbs!

“In Children of the Waters, Carleen Brice manages to explore the difficult, messy and unpleasant details of life with both humor and wisdom. The parallel journeys of sisters, Trish and Billie, will resonate with everyone and anyone who has questioned their identity and place in this world. Once again, Carleen Brice has crafted a thoroughly enjoyable novel that gets at the heart of the human experience." – Lori Tharps, author of Kinky Gazpacho

"In Children of the Waters, Carleen Brice highlights the effects of America's complicated relationship with race and identity on three generations of two families in a clear and insightful depiction of what it means to be American at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Brice knows how far we have come and how far there is left to go, and in Children of the Waters she deflty lays it all out for the reader to see." - Matthew Aaron Goodman, author of Hold Love Strong

I'm feeling like Sally Field more and more every day! :)
