[1st BOOKS] Ellen Sussman: My Summer of Love

Posted by Meg Waite Clayton on July 18, 2014 at 7:00am 0 Comments

Ellen Sussman – my longtime writer-pal (since before either of our first novels released) and regular poker foe (see, e.g., my empty pocketbook) – has a wonderful new novel coming out next week! Christina Baker Kline calls Wedding in Provence “utterly charming and wildly romantic.” And Ellen somehow made time in her VERY busy schedule (read on to see why) to share a bit of wisdom about writing here. Enjoy! – Meg

A Wedding in Provence Cover I’ve been thinking a lot about love these days. My older daughter got married this past weekend. She’s chosen a guy who seems perfect for her – he’s smart, thoughtful, creative, and adores my girl. Gillian is twenty-eight, her fiancé is…

[TIPS OF THE TRADE]: What makes a winning memoir? Hint: Try a logline.

Posted by Ellen Cassedy on July 17, 2014 at 12:30am 16 Comments

Because I’ve become too ridiculously busy to waste a minute reading anything that isn’t true? 

 

Whatever the reason, I love memoirs. 

 

But to win my heart, a memoir must offer all the pleasures of my former love, the novel. 

 

“It doesn’t matter whether you write fiction or nonfiction,” says Ursula Le Guin, the master of fantasy. “All…

[What's Next?] Bread Loaf

Posted by Caitlyn Levin on July 17, 2014 at 6:00am 1 Comment

Hello, everybody! I’m going to veer off topic today (I know, I never do that!) and talk about a place. For the past three weeks I’ve been at Bread Loaf. What is that, you ask? That’s a bit hard to define. In a nutshell, it’s a big piece of land owned by Middlebury College and located in Ripton, Vermont. Basically you go to Middlebury, Vermont and then drive directly up for fifteen minutes, and you’re there. I’m here for graduate studies (working on my MA…

Valuable Points To Jot Down While Planning To Buy Land For Tadoba Resort

The 10 Biggest Mistakes New Authors Make

I will confess that I've been involved with lots of books that have had all kinds of mistakes. Some have been horribly embarrassing—things like leaving an author bio out of a book completely; the word "Forward" on the cover of a book I worked on; my own botched first interior design on my…
