What put the 'Ghost' in Ghost Town


The best of times.

The worst of times.

My parents had decided that our family needed to visit Montana.

And Virginia City.

It sounded . . . Western.

To those of us from the ranch, that translated to mean – exotic.

We led a small life, I admit it.

I don't…

*(notes) people on paper, arms outstretched,

Blurb is a Verb: Working With Book Bloggers, And A Little Help from Jen Karsbaek

There's been a lot of chatter on SheWrites lately about the importance of book bloggers, and the amazing power they have to help get a book "out there." But it’s one thing to appreciate book bloggers and quite another to actually harness this new force in the universe.  Book bloggers are a diverse bunch.  It’s intimidating. So I asked book blogger Jen Karsbaek to weigh in on working with them. Here’s what she had to say.

Do Women Become Invisible As They Age?

Do you think it's true that older women become invisible? I keep hearing it, but I don’t know if I believe it.


I think invisibility is like a new car: once you buy it, you see that model everywhere.

Recently I read a post wherein an older woman (OW) claimed to be invisible because, while she stood at a counter talking with a clerk, a younger woman…

Self-Publishing as Submission

The Submission Mission had an interesting discussion about self-publishing during the September Live Chat. I’m no expert of self-publishing, but here’s a quick follow-up to that conversation. My take-away was that self-publishing looks like an easier route but actually demands that the author put in a lot of time beyond the writing itself.

Perhaps the easiest way to self-publish is to set up a blog. I…

A Performance of Vulnerable Resistance

We moved to a rural town and rented a small house. The house had an oppressive vibe. At first I thought it was the nasty carpeting that reeked of dog. But even after I steam-cleaned it multiple times, the vibe lingered. I felt as though I was being watched.

Within about three weeks of moving in, I decided we needed to do a house blessing to release any old energy that didn’t need to be there anymore. …

Books That Will Change How You See Yourself and the World

Some of my top picks are...

The Bluest Eye

Toni Morrison

Although I was very familiar with this book in many circles, I didn’t touch it until recently. This book, I met with a lot of resistance. I didn’t want to hear another tale about dark-skinned people versus light-skinned people. I think really, was my not wanting to confront my own issues of “light-skinned privilege” and not being “black… Continue

Occupy DC: Or Where I've Been Recently

I’ve spent a few hours the past couple days at one of the Occupy DC protests. As I was told Thursday night during my visit, there are actually two going on simultaneously. One of them is in Freedom Plaza and is peopled by hardcore serious activists™. It trends a little older and grayer. This is because their demonstration had been planned much farther in advance, well before the original Occupy Wall Street in NYC got underway. Its numbers may be a few hundred more or so. This is the group…
