I just got an email from editor Suzann Holland, who, along with the staff of Key Publishing House, is offering writers the chance to review the soon-to-be-published anthology Women Writing on Family: Tips on Writing, Teaching and Publishing (click here for the Facebook page), which has gotten a much nicer book cover design.
This is a great chance to accrue a writing credit for the resume paragraph necessary for all query letters, while also getting to read a great book about writing. While win-win is cliche, the phrase is applicable in this case.
Lastly, if you'd like me to guest blog on your site regarding the topic of my article in the anthology — How to Write About Family Without Getting Sued, or Shunned — or any other aspect of writing nonfiction, let me know. I'll be happy to contribute a piece that's suitable for your blog community.
If you're interested in reviewing the book, here's some contact info. (be sure to say you heard about the book here!):
• Suzann Holland, co-editor of the anthology, (email@example.com)
• Carol Smallwood, co-editor (firstname.lastname@example.org)
• Heather in the Media Department of Key Publishing based in Toronto, Ontario
I'm a writing junkie looking for other writing junkies who are in this gig for the cool of it. People striving to be better writers because that's where their minds fly. I've accrued any number of writing credentials: author of "Growing Great Characters From the Ground Up: A Thorough Primer for the Writers of Fiction and Nonfiction"; writer of short stories published in Watchword, the Berkeley Fiction Review, Iconoclast and other literary journals; journalist of hundreds of articles for such publications as the Chicago Tribune and Inside Karate Magazine; playwright of a play produced in Hollywood. But what I'm looking to create now is a safe haven for writers where they can forget the brutality of the publishing world for awhile and help one another jump literature to a new level. If you're that person, or would like to be, welcome.
