Judith,
Good to hear from you. My plans for coming to Oakland are still developing but it's looking now like I'll be coming Nov. 6 or 7th, leaving the 11th. I've hoping to do a Performing the Book event while I'm there and a couple of bookstore gigs. It would be fun to join up with you and have my improv friends perform some snipets of your book as well. Let me know if this is something that you'd be up for and of course, if you'll be in town on those dates.

Hi Judith. I saw you got my book in one of your comments. Did you read it? Did you also review it on amazon and or goodreads? Wow. I am sorry if I missed all that goodness. :)

I was suggested to speak to women studies in university - I don't know many in academia, do you have any idea how one might reach out to women studies and how it works with their speaker circuits / programs ? thanks much. See you soon!!!

Judith, wish I still lived close enough to come to the Bay Area event--enjoy! Should be a great evening.

Hi Judith, good to be here, now. Has been so so so busy but have a little air now. Tell me what's up with the event in Berkeley ... did you create a FB event I could post around?

Thanks for asking Judith. I am teaching Transformative Blogging for women, blogging when I can at Feral Mom, Feral Writer, and in love with making photo-poem micro movies. I've started a series of blogs in support of women bloggers on my main site. I've also just commited myself to taking this year to work on a book based on the blogging courses. A rich and happy writing life, as it sounds like yours continues to be...I am so glad to have made the connection with you. To gritty, pithy writing and all that it offers!

Judith,

Loved your Valentine post at Huffington Post...so beautifully honest and moving. Wish I'd had chance to work with you at UCD, graduated back in 1991. I worked at WRAC as it was called back then as an intern and minored in Women's Studies so long ago. Off to check out your blog. Thanks again...and I think that love story belongs as much today as in the 60s.

Thanks so much for responding Judith. I've been keeping an eye on SheWrites even though I haven't been active, too much going on in my life, and have noticed how well you're doing, Huff Post etc, and how well you're integrated into the doing around here. If the small press that has my book right now doesn't take me on, I will be joining your ranks.

Hi Judith. Thanks for the invitation to be friends and my apologies for not responding sooner. There aren't  enough hours in the day to do everything I want. Hope this season, and your project, are both moving along at a happy clip for you

Hi Judith,  Thanks for connecting!  Your memoir sounds very interesting.  I'm curious, are you using a book publicist and/or what is your marketing strategy? 

My book Shanghai Love is forthcoming this April 2013 and I'm struggling with this part of the puzzle!

 

Many thanks!

Layne

"I am intrigued by your series and will look at it. What a clever premise. I love Billie Holiday but my favorite version of Gloomy Sunday is by Mel Torme, but his recording wasn't out during the time my book was set."

"HI Mary, I used a Billy Holiday song, too, in my latest mystery, Murder at the Driskill. The title: "Blue Moon." Your books sounds fascinating. I'll check it out."
