My apologies for not writing to you since May 14th. Every available minute has been spent on finishing The Women of Block 12. I am happy to say it will be going to the proofreaders in the next couple of weeks, then off to the printer. This has been a very exciting time. Before release, you will have the opportunity to pre-order the book at a discounted price. Also, groups and organizations will get generous discounts so that they can use the book for fund raising purposes.
Our guest blogger, Joy, is working on another installment of her story. This will be online very soon. She is doing well in her new job and new apartment....I'll let her tell you all about it.
Tomorrow, July 22, author Wally Lamb is visiting Milwaukee at the Benedict Center and due to the generosity of my friend, Jill Turcotte-Nielsen, I GET TO GO! Mr. Lamb is very famous for his novels, but I am particularly interested in two of his works Couldn't Keep It To Myself and I'll Fly Away. He teaches writing classes at a women's prison. These two works are a collection of the inmates writings. I highly recommend all of Mr. Lambs books. You can find more information at Harper Collins. I promise to memorize every word he says tomorrow night and give you a full report of his talk.
