Thanks for the friend request, which I was happy to accept. FYI - I try not to spend lots of time on-line [at this or any other site] as I am trying to write and/or edit several manuscripts. I do get posting notifications on my Blackberry and can answer thru it or come on-line to respond. If it's something that needs quick response, please mention it early in the message/comment.
"44", oh you baby! I turn 65 on the 23rd. Would love to see 44 again, so much that I know now that I could have done back then. Anyway, love it, embrace it! You'll be old soon enough. We Aquarians know how to have a celestial good time!! Happy Birthday!!
Holly, Belated 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.
I hope you’ll enjoy the group.
Meg Waite Clayton Novelist Group Moderator Author of The Wednesday Sisters (a nationally bestselling writing group novel) and the forthcoming The Wednesday Daughters (Random House/Ballantine)

I hope you are well. I thought you might be interested in the children's book I wrote called My Body Belongs to Me. It is intended to prevent child sexual abuse by teaching 3-8 year olds their bodies are private. Please let me know your thoughts.
Hi Holly! I believe Mediabistro will use the sample you submit to determine whether or not they feel you're a good fit for this class. I don't exactly know, though, as they handle that part of the process, so you can ask them if you want more info...
On Jan 9th, 2010 by debut novel SUGAR will celebrate it's 10th Anniversary in print!
"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."
Praise for the novels of Bernice L. McFadden:
"Searing and expertly imagined." - Toni Morrison
"Vivid." - The New York Times
"Eloquent..." (McFadden) is a talent worth watching." - The Washington Post
I’m asking that you purchase a copy of SUGAR for yourself, a friend or family member. And yes, KINDLE purchases count.
Please spread the word!
