Happy Summer from Writers4Higher
Golly. It’s Summer. Already.
I know many of the Writers4Higher family of authors keep plugging away, even if they, like me, live in a steam-sauna state. My muses despise the heat and humidity. They’ve packed up and headed to their retreat in Canada. Meanwhile, I settle into my editor’s role and work on endless, mind-numbing but necessary revisions. Hey, it can’t all be first-draft play, right?
I have no worries; those misfit muses of mine will bounce back into town in late October, full of characters and plot lines, ready for me to sit down and follow their lead.
Recently, after I birthed my latest novel Parade of Horribles, I took a moment to check in with my author family. A few jotted emails to catch me up on their projects.
Jeff Weddle has a new book, Comes to This, a poetry collection.
Angela Yolanda Hodge’s latest book was released in March: Daybreak: 100 Powerful Breakthrough Moments for Women.
Scott Archer Jones has been busy, with two books released since he was a feature on the blog: The Big Wheel and A Rising Tide of People Swept Away.
Diane Sawyer has been promoting her book The Tell-TaleTreasure, and she had the honor of speaking at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, in April.
Malcolm R. Campbell has released two books in his Florida Folk Magic Stories series, Conjure Woman’s Cat and Eulalie and Washerwoman.
Cheryl C. Malandrinos released her latest children’s book, Macaroni and Cheese for Thanksgiving.
I find it comforting, knowing the rest of the gang is out there writing in spite of work, family obligations, births, deaths, the zoo of news, and the other countless blips circling the radar screen.
As for me, it’s a good thing air conditioning was invented. I shall dash from one cool cubicle to the next as fast as my feet will carry me. Mama always said “women don’t sweat, they glow.” If so, you might be able to see me from wherever you are, some clear evening.
I wish you a healthy, fun-filled summer and the best to your continued success.
Love to you!
