It’s a scorcher today in the Bay Area, which means it’s a dry 80 degrees. (I’m spoiled.) So I thought I’d bring you some hot writing news.
The reviews are in!
Ed Lin, author of Snakes Can’t Run, This is a Bust, and Waylaid, gave me and my book Black Fish a shout-out this week in Giant Robot magazine. Woot! It’s my first real review (beyond kids writing on Amazon that my YA novel was “fantastica!”).
My second real review came from Thomas Ott, who gave an honest, well-rounded, and ultimately positive take on my book. I appreciate and encourage honesty, which is definitely NOT the same as anonymous internet trolls who say bad things to cause a ruckus and get some attention without revealing anything about themselves. But I digress. . .
Wisdom Has a Voice on Kindle
Wisdom Has a Voice, an anthology of essays about mothers and daughters, is now available on the Kindle! It includes my essay about my grandmother, Puo-puo. The print version of the book will be available in October.
That’s it from here! I plan on spending the rest of this warm work-from-home day inside, doing yoga, eating, and writing. Could be worse.
