This week's news from:
You are cordially invited to the first of several festivities around the launch of The Dancing Girl and the Turtle. This party is in London, an all-day event on Saturday March 25 in celebration of the 10th anniversary of my publisher, Linen Press. It's also a pre-launch of The Dancing Girl and the Turtle, so I'll be reading excerpts from my novel and speaking about its dark themes of violence. If you're interested in coming, go here for ticket purchase.
But if you're not in London on that date or feeling pressed for time or cash or have suddenly developed a fear of flying: no worries. The official book launch will be in Amsterdam and entry will be free. Tentative date: Saturday April 8 from 5-7pm. Venue still to be confirmed!
In the meantime, winter drags on and the days are especially dark since the inauguration of Donald Trump. I find myself in need of comfort food. Except for mashed potatoes, I don't care much for white food. When I need comfort, I go Chinese. If things get really bad, it's Chinese soup I want. This week's blog is entitled Pig Knuckle Soup. Need I say more?
But this is not to say I've given up. Oh no, sirree. Last weekend, I took to the streets of Amsterdam for the Women's March. You can read about how that went in my guest blog "Blessed Are the Cheesemakers", courtesy of Femflection, as soon as it gets posted.
In the meantime, another guest blog post of mine has gone live, this one for my publisher Linen Press. It's called "Ping-Pong: The Editing Process".
There's new stuff on my website for your reading pleasure. In the Media so you can follow my progress with the press and another review in Book by Book.
