Life got in the way and it's been some time since I've posted here.
The holiday season is upon us and that means book events popping up all over the map.
This Saturday I'll be in Winnsboro at the Cultural Arts Center as a representative of White Bird Publishing. If you're in the area, stop by and say Hi to a great bunch of authors.
It's also National Novel Writing Month but I'm passing up participating this year. Last year was a first-time experience for me and I was astonished at how much writing I accomplished. Didn't know I could write to deadlines! The story I completed, tentatively titled Mai Lin, is nearing the close of its critiquing stage and is headed for publication some time next year.
Mai Lin was sold as a child in China and comes to San Francisco, California at the turn of the Twentieth century...just in time to experience the earthquake. My story chronicles her adventurous life in those turbulent times and gives the reader a glimpse into Chinese life in that city back then.
Recently I committed to writing book reviews with a group of author friends. They've been posting some complementary reviews for Second Time Around. Hope you'll go here and check them out. http://www.amazon.com/Second-Time-Around-Gay-Ingram-ebook/dp/B00A6DCWJI/ref=la_B008VS6AJI_1_4?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1415282147&sr=1-4
This year's project, a fictionalized biography of Harriet Tubman, is on its way to the first reader. I await comments and suggestions.
Been reading lots of great books; I came across one I highly recommend: A Walk On The Beach by Joan Anderson.
Until next time, happy reading.
