MY FAVORITE BOOK YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF: The Gate to Women's Country

The following post is penned by SheWrites member Linda Lowen.



If Margaret Atwood hadn't published The Handmaid's Tale in 1985 and sucked all the air out of the room for other women writers exploring contemporary gender issues under the guise of a feminist dystopian novel, Sherri S. Tepper's The Gate to Women's Country (1988) might have been more widely… Continue

Up Next: MY FAVORITE BOOK YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF

Yes, we are writers, and our newest feature title ends in a proposition. Artistic license?!

We'll be looking for more SheWriters to contribute to this feature in the future, so if you'd like to contribute, please shoot me a note here at SheWrites!

STATE OF THE ART: Is Amazon's Kindle the Wild West?

It’s been almost a month since Amazon deleted illegal versions of George Orwell’s “1984” from customers' Kindles. But while news reports and blogs empathized with Kindle readers as the hapless victims of Orwellian-style censorship, hardly anyone expressed sympathy for the authors and publishers getting ripped off by pirated copies of their works.



(The blog AppScout even… Continue

COVER GIRL: U.S. vs. U.K.: Which is Which?



I used to think all U.K. paperback jackets were nicer. It's like you go to London one time and get seduced by the accents and suddenly everything is fancy and bespoke. But lately I'm not so sure. I've been comparing contemporary fiction jackets and I think I prefer the U.S. versions. Here are some bestselling versions of the same Classics in the U.S. and U.K. Can you pick which is which?…

ONE MONTH OF SHE WRITES. WHAT NOW?

We have a plan. Lots of them, actually. First, however, a very important development for our community. We've decided to make SHE WRITES a public network.

Your page, however, and your blogposts, can still be made private (each of you have that option), and are not and will never be "property" of SW. However if you are blogging on the site, and you wish to share your blog with… Continue
