Eating Chocolate

I gave my husband three cacao trees five years ago for our anniversary. Now, after a visit to the Garden Island Chocolate farm, I know why they are nothing more than three sticks in the hard-packed ground where I live on Kauai.The scientific name Theobroma cacao translates to “food of the gods” and “the chocolate tree.” In America, we refer to the plant and all its products before processing as…See More

Why I Write

I stole this title from Joan Didion who, herself, stole it from George Orwell. These are two decent names to include in any piece on writing, I admit.Today is the National Day on Writing. For the third year in a row, the Senate passed a resolution marking October 20 as a day to recognize writing.

What is an essay?

Meg Waite Clayton's recent discussion on favorite essays and essayists stumped me for a bit. Of course, the first name to come to mind was Joan Didion. That was easy. But who else? Susan Orlean? No, she's more a literary journalist, I reasoned. Terry Tempest Williams? No, she's more a memoirist, I thought.Like many times before, I found myself asking, what makes an essay?A few weeks ago, I attended a writing retreat with Kim Stafford and this very topic came up. Kim quoted short story writer,…See More

"I'll add Diane Ackerman (try The Moon by Whale Light) and Dorothy Allison (in particular Two or Three I Know for Sure, which is really a memoir of essays). Ackerman showed me how to write science and Allison opened a door to memoir for me."

Hi Kim,
Saw your note about DivineCaroline. Outside of the info that's provided on the site's About section (http://www.divinecaroline.com/about), I do know DivineCaroline is the flagship property of the venture-backed media company, Real Girls Media Network, Inc. Unlike Kirtsy and some of the other drive-by post-it-and-hope-someone-reads, there's some editorial oversight. Same goes for the submitted material chosen by More magazine's, More.com site. I've seen some good traffic from them both back to my book and blog site, which I usually reference somewhere in my author byline/profile. Hope this is helpful. Best, Pamela

Dear Kim:

You may not know me or my work, but I am the national bestselling, award winning novelist of six critically acclaimed novels who has been twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.

On Jan 9th, 2010 my debut novel, SUGAR will celebrate its 10th anniversary and in order to commemorate this milestone I am campaigning to sell 10,000 copies between now and that date.



“Bernice L. McFadden's first novel begins with the brief, poetic description of a crime so startling that the reader is helplessly drawn in, as if a bright red door stood ajar on a bleak and forbidding house. Pearl Taylor's daughter, Jude, has been found murdered and mutilated near a field at the edge of town. "The murder had white man written all over it," writes McFadden. "But no one would say it above a whisper. It was 1940. It was Bigelow, Arkansas. It was a black child. Need any more be said?" In the years that follow, Pearl catches sight of Jude in so many strangers that when Sugar Lacey comes to town and sets up her unwholesome "business" in the house next door, she doesn't know whether to believe what she sees in Sugar's face: a striking similarity to Jude, dead 15 years. In her sedate but supple prose--rising at times to a light, unforced lyricism in the description of landscape or character--the author perfectly renders the closed and protective society of a small Southern town, the superstitions, gossip, and prying.”


I’m asking that you purchase a copy of SUGAR for yourself, a friend or family member. And yes, KINDLE purchases count.

If you could help spread the word by blogging, twittering and Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.


Peace & Light,

Bernice L. McFadden

Hi Kim! Welcome to SHE WRITES! I am so glad you are here and thank you for being my friend. :) We should talk about how you can start a SHE WRITES salon in Hawaii for writers based there. The whole idea of this is to build communities both on and offline, and find ways to help women writers connect and sustain each other.

warm best and more soon
Kamy
