I have been remiss in blogging, I'll admit.  But you might forgive me if I confess that I was unwilling to replace the blog I posted after my beloved Kathi Goldmark died.  Not that it was a masterpice, but it was my memorial.  And I suspect that moving on, sending it into the archive, was truly burying her.  But Kathi herself would have reminded me that I cannot mount a Perpetual Kathi Elegy.  So, forgive me, Kathi--but we roll along.

So, whatcha doing this summer?

Ahh, AWP just around the corner which means writing minds are thinking about the summer and all those glorious hours to fill. This is the time of year you might be looking for a writing conference or two. I generally think they're a good idea as a place to find inspiration and community. There are still scholarships available at some places, so look carefully.

Book club members have been some of my most enthusiastic and careful readers. I’m thrilled to share my work with you, answer your questions and tell you some of the stories behind the stories. This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat:  If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.

Tell us all about your book club!
