The Other Daughter by Joanne C. Hillhouse (fiction)

My daddy is Prime Minister. I was born in the back room of a whore house on Popeshead Street. I lived there with my mother.When other children teased and called me, Bubby Island, it was because of my mother’s abundance of breast and the fact that we lived in the island’s most popular red light district.  I was willowy and almost ghostly compared to the force of nature that she was.The backroom that we lived in was not the whorehouse where she worked, but one in a series of rooming houses – home…See More

Submitting Something Somewhere: Things to Consider (blog)

Posted on August 27, 2016 at 12:21pm 0 Comments

Aim beyond the moon. By which I mean, let’s not limit ourselves. We should take advantage of the accessibility of niche publications.  The niche ones may make it possible for us to get our foot wedged in the publishing door due to us/our work fitting the publication’s gender, race, cultural, or geographical niche, but let’s not mistake them for inferior – the best ones have standards just as exacting as our so-called dream publications. But the dream publications are so called because their…

There is no Spoon...

Posted on January 3, 2016 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

Once I realized that the dungeon was a part of this story, I embraced it; and post-publishing, I’m thrilled that I was able to ink it into memory. Because I don’t believe that forgetting serves us. I believe that the memory of all that our ancestors survived should embolden us to be our best selves, to honour their legacy by fighting to retain the freedom they bled for.  And I think it’s somewhat ironic that though we hold the reins of institutions of politics and education, we still don’t…

Apologies Joanne for misplacing your "house" -- and I should know as Hillhouse is the high school in my hometown!

I'll check into that! I'd love to do another literay festival. And I agree, let's stay connected. If I can ever get you out my way. . . I'l keep you in mind. Who knows where things might lead.

Of course I remember you and your beautiful writing. I'm really excited to see your book has come to fruition. I can't wait to order a copy. What are you working on now? I'm still plugging away. I write full time and currently I'm working on a story collection. I have a novel that's 2/3 done, but these stories were speaking so loudly I had to give an ear to them. I'd love to get back to the Caribbean though.

Hi Joanne, thanks for the friend request. It's really good to see you again. Love the picture.

Hi Joanne, hope is going well with your book. Hard work, isn't it?! Ciao cat

hi!  I'm not sure... you mean to submit to great group reads consideration??  I would go to the WNBA website and email someone there -- they tend to work with established publishing houses. I just read the books that's all:)!!  WNBA is more of  a networking group ... does that help??  Thanks for reading my post!!  Best, Caroline

Hi Joanne! Thanks for the friendship add. BTW, I put "The Boy from Willow Bend" on my wish list at Amazon. I've been reading some Caribbean literature lately and want to read more.

:-) Now your friend request has disappeared, so I sent one to you. Great photo, btw. I love black and white. So much texture.
