"FANTASTIC discussion of the various publishing options available to writers now. SWP's vetting process is one of the key things that sets it apart from the rest of the self-publishers out there. Amazing women they are! "
"Thanks @KathyRadigan! I am constantly amazed at the community and support I've found among my women blogger friends. If you want to see what woman can do together, look no farther than the blogging community. "Awesome" in all respects…"
"Thanks for doing this! My blog is Science Of Parenthood, an illustrated humor blog where we take the math and science principles you learned in high school and middle school and use them to "explain" parenting. Please come check it…"

Norine, Welcome to the novelist group. If you haven’t done so already, you might introduce yourself by telling us what you’re working on in the “Show Me Your Novel and I’ll Show You Mine” discussion.
We do a live chat at 1 EST on the first Wednesdays of each month, with instructions on how to participate in the "Our Water Cooler" box near the top of the group page. And we save the wall for discussion, but welcome links to helpful blog posts on the “Links to Helpful Blog Posts for Writers” discussion thread and to published books in the “Our Published Novels” one.
Norine, love your blog collaboration and concept of pairing graphics with posts--wickedly funny material too. I'm writing material on my main site Transformative Blogging:2013 Year of Inquiry in support of women bloggers and would love to interview you down the road (if you have the time) about your process, etc.
I live in Katonah, about an hour north of NYC. We moved here, from the city, when our daughter was about to enter kindergarten. I love the city, and I love living in a place that affords me open space. And now that I've begun to move into the online community of writers, etc., nothing ever feels far away.
When I make latkes, I keep two frying pans going at time. My kitchen smells like a latke factory. My friends love this Chanukah tradition, which I started when our kids were young. Now they're all grown up and gone from the fold, and we still eat latkes at my house. I guess that makes me a kindred Latke Lady.
I loved your blog and tried to leave a message there. Don't know why there was a problem - it may be my crummy internet server - which sometimes crashes...So I included it here as well. If it did not post and you want me to try again, just let me know. Here it is just in case:
Great post! You bring me back to our potty training days (my kids are now in college - it goes by REALLY fast!).
I have a great story but cannot share it - my son would KILL me! And even though I tell him it's in the parent handbook to embarrass a child, I think I better not do it here in cyberspace.
LOVED the blog - hope you visit mine- I blog about parenting from an educator/psychologist/experienced mom perspective. My latest comment is on giving constructive criticism. Would love to have your voice join the conversation: www.departingthetext.blogspot.com
Hi Norine, Welcome to the Southern Writers Group. We're very glad to have you. I enjoyed reading your blog and will be on the lookout for your articles. With your background you're a great addition to our group and I trust you'll be happy to give advice to some of the beginners. In true southern style I'm encouraging members from our group to ask for support and advice. Please introduce yourself either in the comment section or on Zetta's role call discussion and by all means feel free to start a discussion yourself. Cheers, 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 and Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.
