Planning a book launch: Launch Day!

It happened! That day that loomed up ahead for almost a full year, that long-awaited, exhilarating day took place. In the days leading up to it, people asked me if I was nervous, and I looked at them funny, wondering why they were asking such a thing. Little by little, their…

Writing Markets to Avoid -- And 5 Ways To Spot Them

I still remember that summer afternoon when my mother came upstairs to find me weeping into my pillow.  I was 20 years old, and I had just discovered that my boyfriend had been two-timing me. Of course, I told my mother the edited, sanitized version of the story, leaving out that part about me walking into his apartment to find him in bed with his ex-girlfriend.   

I also remember my mother’s advice: “You should be choosier about the company you keep,” she said. “Pick…

Do-Over at the Smooching Pond

Do you ever look back at your life and think, “If I could only do that over?” There are lots of things in life that you can do over. A bad haircut will grow out and you can start all over again with a new style. A golf shot can be done over, and over again, likewise with a tennis volley, or basketball shot. You get to try again and again.


Unfortunately, there are some things that can’t be fixed with a do-over. What about spiteful words spoken about someone? You can’t take…

She Writes/She Reads: Women and the New World of Publishing

The question of who gets to be a storyteller and of whose stories are read and acknowledged is crucial—not just for women, but for men and for the way civil society as a whole is constructed.

The “She Writes” in my title alludes to two things—my publisher, She Writes Press, and…

Cuban Blog Day #18 Check Out Che's Eyes

I had planned to take the same taxi driver on to Playa Girón. When a taxi showed up, I was disappointed, yet not surprised, to find a different driver and two passengers already in the car.  I asked if it would be cheaper and explained the deal I had made with the driver the day before, but he didn’t go down in price. That made it easy to tell him to take a hike and wait around to take the bus with the…

Blame the Cricket

So once upon a time there was a house full of humans, whose laughter undulated like a school of sardines though the ocean.  Most evening they sang happily, but other they were angry and distraught; they stared at each other and felt each other’s sadness and joys as if it were their own.  They were unfazed by the irregularity of their happiness, by the ups and downs of their innermost fears and hesitations.  They simply lived, without question. 


One day a little cricket snuck…
