Mollie, Can you send me a small jpeg of the cover of your book or a picture of one the pies from your book that I can hopefully--being old and technologically challenged--figure out how to put up as our cover picture for the southern writers group? I won't leave you there forever as I will change it periodically to give other folks their day in the sun. I just thought yours would be a great start--being southern, food, pies and all. Having grown up with the corny Southern Living point of view, I simply cannot stand that ugly purple people thing another minute! N
Hi Mollie, Welcome to Southern Writers. I just recently became the admin and I'm hoping we can get these people chatting again. I can't believe southerners don't have anything to say! Your book looks wonderful and I know that part of the world a little bit as I travel through there on my way "home" from New England to the Gulf Coast. One of my long-time friends is originally from Covington and considers it heaven. Look forward to your participation. Welcome. Nicky
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 ad Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.
