I recently had a piece published at Huffington Post about the day my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/lauren-salkin/significant-other-gets-significant-diagnosis_b_6674832.html

It's funny/sad. I hope you get a chance to read it.

My first book, Not Exactly Nightingale is out at http://www.amazon.com/. It's a coming of age memoir that was exhausting to write over the past four years. I was not at all prepared for the heartfelt responses to it on social media. Set in highly conservative West Texas, I'm waiting for it to be banned there for inappropriate language. ;).

My first eco-fiction “Color Blind” is up at Eclectica Magazine. It features extinctions, Sesame Street, Sekhmet, Santa Claus, golden Panamanian frogs, and a sweet family -- all in a very economical 1,700 words. Read it here (no charge except your time): http://www.eclectica.org/v19n1/davis.html. And remember: Short fiction -- try it, you'll like it!

Hey gang,

I'm a recent transplant to Nashville and just launched the Nashville Writers SW group. I'm hoping to revitalize local SW activity and hope that my sister SWers in Nashville will join the group.

I also have selfish reasons for starting the group. I am looking for 3 to 4 writers in Nashville that are actively submitting, publishing, or optioning their work to join a critique group. The folks I'm looking for don't have to be published yet or much, but we're not beginners and we have the bandwidth to support other writers our mutual quest.

I have tried the local Meetups and the 5-page limit and the no-review-in-advance doesn't make for useful critique for those of us that are writing long works. I want to dig in with folks and see what writers in Nashville really have to offer.

Plus, it's always nice to meet new friends. Thanks, Hope J Lafferty

In response to my first She Writes blog post, "Funding for Women Artists: How Long? Not Long." I want to thank everyone who signed my petition calling for legislation that would ensure equitable distribution of tax-payer funds received by arts organizations and institutions.  We got 716 signatures and all 50 states!  I think that is progress and is indeed worth bragging about.  Winning = Progress.  We'll get more next time!

Hello, Sisters!  Still new to She Writes and just discovered this handy-dandy "Member News" feature. An article I wrote for HowlRound was published a week ago Monday called, "Kicking the Can Down the Road Towards [Gender] parity.  It features some suggestions I received from Gloria Steinem on the subject.  I hope you will check it out: http://howlround.com/kicking-the-can-down-the-road-towards-parity#disqus_thread

In Solidarity, Yvette Heyliger

I'm attempting to write my first book, a memoir about the seventies in Spain. It is very challenging and, at times, overwhelming, but hope to finish it!

I'm thrilled to announce the release of my debut novel, You'll Be Thinking of Me by Soul Mate Publishing as an ebook. It's the story of a young woman's serendipitous encounter with a celebrity, her brush with obsessive love and the bittersweet gift left behind by the very person fixated on destroying her life.

If you'd like to learn more about the ebook, read an excerpt or place an order, please visit my website at densiewebb.com.
