I recently had the pleasure to read and review Jeanne Althouse’s Boys in the Bank. My thoughts about the chapbook can be found on the Green Briar Review blog. I hope you’ll check it out!

I talked to the wonderful booksellers at The Bookworm today, and they’ve agreed to sell Space, Collisions! For those of you who’d like to buy a physical copy of the micro-chapbook, I’d encourage you to pick it up at this lovely independent bookstore. You can buy the micro-chapbook online or find it on their local author shelf inside the brick-and-mortar store. The Bookworm has a wonderful track record of housing and promoting local authors. It would mean a great deal to me if you’d consider checking out this family-owned business, especially during your holiday season shopping.

Recently, I had the pleasure to chat with Sarah Foil, a friend of mine from Salem College. She interviewed me about Space, Collisions. You can find our discussion on her blog today. And do check out the rest of her blog, if you pop over there. She’s a writer, editor, and media manager and her reviews and interviews are always interesting.

Hi, friends! Author Rob Mclennan asked me to participate in a project he created, which is called, “My (Small Press) Writing Day.” The project is modeled after something similar at The Guardian but specifically focuses on small press writers. You can find my response, as well as many others, at Rob’s blog. Thanks for checking it out, if you do!

My good friend Meredith Allison reviewed Space, Collisions and interviewed me about the collection. Her thoughts and questions are totally spot on. She’s one of my writing heroines and I can’t wait for her upcoming historical fiction novel, Blood & Whiskey, to be released.

You can read the review and interview here. I hope you’ll check it out!

Happy National Novel Writing Month! Even while I attended Creighton University’s MFA program, I participated in NaNoWriMo. It was tough, to say the least, but the upside was that I never had to worry about showing up to class empty handed.

In celebration of NaNoWriMo, I’d like to link you to this article by one of my former classmates. It’s titled, “National Novel Writing Month inspires Creighton writers,” and some of my own thoughts about the nonprofit are also there to read.

Here’s an excerpt:
