On Tuesday on WFW, I’ll start once again posting interviews and guest posts from some of your favorite and new-to-you women’s fiction authors. Oh yes, along with my own news and views on occasion (one perk of hosting this site).
But today I wanted to tell you about Printer’s Row Lit Fest in Chicago. It’s June 8-9 in the—you guessed it—Printer’s Row neighborhood. I’ll be on a panel on Sunday, June 9th at 3pm with Henriette Lazaridis Power and Thea Goodman, moderated by Parneshia Jones. You can find out more about Printers Row by clicking here. It’s all free, you just have to register for a ticket to attend!
In preparation for the Lit Fest, I was featured in the Chicago Tribune on Saturday and again in the Trib’s Printer’s Row Journal today.
Something else going on that you may have caught wind of on Twitter or Facebook, is that I’ve signed another book deal with Brenda Copeland at St. Martin’s. Yep! I get to write another work of women’s fiction, FALLING INTO PLACE. This one is about Izzy Lane, a divorced mom and anonymous blogger whose lies about a wonderful (fake) boyfriend land her a job as a relationship columnist with a popular website. The problem is, she hasn’t dated in years. FALLING INTO PLACE explores not only the way one’s online life can intrude on real life, but why someone lives with ‘life lies’ and what has to happen to make her come clean and deal with the consequences. In Izzy’s case that’s not only her family and friends, but her readers.
And in addition to all the book hoopla, today is my daughter’s high school graduation and on Friday my son heads to New York for a summer internship. We are a very busy family!
I hope you’ll stick around for the next part of the writing and publishing journey and lots of new interviews with women’s fiction authors. WFW is scheduled through October 2013—but just let me know if you or someone you know should be included!
Thanks for everything!
