It’s been a while, so it’s time to SAY HEY!
HEY! → To the wonderful staff at The Boston Home, who invited me last March to be their very first featured author for their in-house writing group! What a fun time, talking about writing and living with multiple sclerosis with so many people also deeply engaged in this important work. Here’s the live-streamed event recording for YouTube.
HEY! → To author friend Dylan Quarles for releasing the two-book edition of The Secret History of Port Townsend (vol. 1 and vol. 2) and winning both the Best Indie Book Award and the Amazon #1 Bestseller distinction for his book, There Be Monsters!
HEY! → To my long-time magical realism kindred spirit Kristy Webster for her new book, Heretic, soon to be released by Beyond the Veil Press!
HEY! → To my new-ish critique group via North Seattle SciFi and Fantasy Writers for being an amazing support system, on point with diverse feedback and unfailing encouragement while never letting me get away with anything!
HEY! → To Jendi Reiter, whose awesome new book, Made Man, makes for perfect Pride Month reading! Their third poetry collection “explores female-to-male transition and gay masculine identity through the voices of unusual objects and fictional characters with some aspect that is constructed, technological, or hybrid.” Super cool, congratulations Jendi!
HEY! → My critique group peer Kevin King recently released his YA fantasy novel, Song of the Adoël. Check it out here!
HEY! → To my poet sister with MS, Jeannine Hall Gailey, a big huzzah for landing a contract with BOA Editions to publish her new book of poems, Flare, Corona (forthcoming in 2023).
۞ Two more recently published poetry books I can happily recommend: Suzanne Edison‘s Since the House is Burning and Raul Sanchez‘s When There Were No Borders.
