Technological glitch?

Started Nov 17, 2010 0 Replies

I'm beginning to wonder if there's a technological problem with my 'visibility' (that's not a metaphor). My Page shows only 3 discussions that I've participated in (i.e., I've definitely participated…Continue

My Books

 "Like a book written with the wisdom of a 'yankee' Flannery O'Connor, Batterman's stories are filled with satire, and laugh aloud humor;  the profound insights she offers up in the quotable saltings of her work are new and stunning."                                                Deborah Riggs Previte, A Bookish Libraria   

 

Deborah Batterman fills the senses with her poignant, funny observations of family and modern life, drawing the reader in, revealing layers of existence with the nuanced phrase, the apt symbol  Cheryl Snell

. . . National Girlfriends Day, Wed., August 1st. 

Today I’m thinking about a red dress.  A perfect red, somewhere between fire engine and wine. Fitted button-down bodice edged in a ruffle made from the same soft cotton as the dress.  The…

Many years ago, on a trip to Japan, I visited a temple, Shisendo, the “House of the Hermit Poet.” Built in 1642 by Ishikawa Jozan, a warrior-turned-scholar of Chinese literature  and poet who lived out his years as a recluse, the gardens and building now encompass a Buddhist retreat. On the second level of the…

The first novel I publish will not be the first novel I wrote. This is not the way I planned it but life, for all the stranger-than-fiction moments it encompasses, does not necessarily follow the narrative arc of a novel. There are things we don’t get to choose. . .…

Deborah,

How exciting! I live in NYC but was invited to do the reading by the Mount Pleasant Library. The event is listed now on my home page (I'm not yet up to speed on how to post things the right way) but the text is below, in case you can make it.

It's lovely to "meet" you this way - and I'm going to go and enjoy reading your blog right now.

Hi Deborah!

It's so nice to meet you! I see from your picture that we have more than shoes in common - the dog! I have 4 and adore them! By the way, my book is about a girl who grows up in a beauty shop, so we also have "hair" in common. I am putting your book on my kindle; can't wait to read it!

Cheers!

Rebecca
