Join Kevin Griffith, author of 101 KINDS OF IRONY and professor of English at Capital University, to discuss his humorous treatment of this literary concept.
We are launching an Author Question and Answer series on our new group at GoodReads. This week, we kick off with Dorothee Lang and Smitha Murthy, authors of WOR[L]DS APART.
What a week! Thanks to the kind folks at Capital Public Radio and the Northern California Publishers & Authors, this week will be one to remember:
Madeline Sharples is an essayist, poet, and a nonfiction writer who lives in Manhattan Beach, CA. Recent poems can be found in Memoir, unFold, and the Survivor Chronicles. Her memoir LEAVING THE HALL LIGHT ON is forthcoming from Lucky Press LLC set for release on Mother’s Day 2011.
Going on a book tour is an important part of advertising your work. Since April, Jessie Carty, founding editor of Folded Word, has been on tour with her poetry collection Paper House, which was released March 30, 2010.
“The stories in Snowing Fireflies are different, I feel, from other stories or (as yet unpublished) novels I’ve written—different in style, tone, delivery, etc,” said Eric Beeny when describing the writing style in his chapbook Snowing Fireflies. “They feel more ‘mature’.”
Last week, we caught up with our only Cypriot contributor thus far. Nora Nadjarian shared the lovely serial “Zoo” with us in October. We’d been tracking her all morning, in and out of the market stalls, but she moves fast. We finally caught her when she stopped to people watch over a light lunch.
When I caught up with Ben White for this interview, he was playing guitar in the office. His wife got annoyed and told him to “stop making noise.” Like me, he is also a huge fan of sleeping in. HUGE. I appreciate that he puts off the loving embrace of his treasured memory foam mattress to write vast amounts PicFic tweets.
Two weeks ago, we brought you the first half of our interview with meika loofs-samorzewski. And, at long last, here is the second half you’ve all been waiting for;-)
We crossed the International Date Line and the Equator for this interview, so we’re made the most of our trip and asked follow-up questions for the first time.
