The Winner of the Book Drawing from David Normoyle

I always love it when a friend is picked in the drawing and I am happy to announce that the winner of the free book of Crimson Dream from David Normoyle :

Charlotte K. Volnek

I can assure you my daughter drew the name sight unseen!!!


This is going to be a short post. Lots of great things are happening for me and most of my friends know about them, but I'll put them here anyway. Last week I learned that my poem, "Broken Balloons" is going to be in an anthology, The Long and Winding Road, which is a book with poetry from and about the period of the late 60's and early 70's. Since I went through that period I decided to enter the poem and I was thrilled when I heard it was going to be included.:) It's being published by Dzanc Books, which is a non-profit publisher with a good heart. I'm very excited!!! The book will be available in the first quarter of 2012.

The other good thing is that I am going to be reading an excerpt from my soon to be published YA novel, If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor on August 14th. I will be with two other authors on a webinar to bookstores and other members of the publishing community. Here is the flyer they sent to me advertising the reading:

If you have any questions or if you are a writer who would like to share your work in this forum please send an email (with a brief bio & excerpt) to for consideration.
All are Welcome & We look forward to having you!

I hope some of you can tune in to hear this. It's also very exciting.:)

Until the next time, my guests for RRWL Tales from the Pages are Beth Reinke and Salvatore Butacci. Beth was my guest author here as I mentioned last time. Salvatore is a poet and short story writer. This should be a great show with some surprise callers as well. Please call in to talk with either of these guests.

The day after the show, a real star is going to be here, Lea Schizas, my publisher. She is also a celebrated and many published author and I am looking forward to having her here. Then later in the week I welcome Viviane Bretanos to the blog with a post of her own.

I hope you will be able to join us for these exciting posts. Thank you to my new followers. I am so happy you found me and of course, thank you to everyone who continues to enjoy my meanderings.
