Books Blog @ the Times Union Round Up

In case you missed any of the blog posts I wrote for the Books Blog on the Times Union online newspaper website here is a recap:


Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



Blog Contributor to the Times Union

I'm very excited to report that I have taken on a volunteering gig as a blog contributor to the Times Union's Book Blog! The Times Union is my area's largest local paper. Along with myself, there will be six or so of us writing blog entries on all things reading related. I'm pumped to do this because I LOVE to read (which kinda makes sense since I like to write…funny how those things go :-)  ) Feel free to check out my first blog post:

If you like what you read, not only mine but the posts in general, please book mark this page

and check back to see what we all have had to say. Thank you!

First submission - yeah me!

I'm very happy/nervous/proud to say that I've submitted my very first piece of writing to be reviewed for publication! Earlier this month I sent to Glimmer Train Press a very, very short piece of fiction to be considered for their February 2015 magazine edition. Not only did I submit it but I entered into their Very Short Fiction contest….I figure if I'm going for it I might as well go BIG and be BOLD.

For those of you who don't know, Glimmer Train Press is a highly regarded literary magazine published four times a year by two sisters who read every single piece that is sent to them. I encourage anyone who loves to read, read short stories, or wants to witness the birth of a new writer's career to subscribe to this or purchase an issue of this magazine.
