As our membership grows, so does our news! Marilyn Yalom contributed to a discussion on Monday, July 6 at the New York Times Online about "clueless wives" ("The Clueless Wives Club") and would love to know what ya'll think. Pre-publication sales for Marie Gauthier's new chapbook of poems, Hunger All Inside, have begun. Want a taste? You can visit Marie's blog to read a sample poem. Judith D. Schwartz wrote an article in this week's Time magazine called "Tough Times Create Local Currencies," and her book, The Therapist's New Clothes, is now out. Christina Baker Kline's new blog, A Writing Year: Ideas and Inspiration for Writing a Novel, got a great shout out from the book biz website Shelf Awareness this week, and she also learned that the fabulous Alison Larkin will be narrating her new novel, Bird in Hand (pub date August) for the Audible audiobook. Laura Bell's new book, 101 Things You Didn't Learn in Harvard Business School, is now available. Rachael Brownell's first book, Mommy Doesn't Drink Here Anymore: Getting Through the First Year of Sobriety (August 2 pub date), is now up on Amazon. She'll be doing readings in the Bay Area, and hopes she'll get the opportunity to meet some fellow SHE WRITES members there! Jane Hammons' very short story, "Mary Jesus," was just published in Able Muse (Workshops Issue: Summer 2009). Thaisa Frank guest edited the edition, and an audio version of Jane's story can be found right here. Mary Guterson's newest novel, Gone to the Dogs (St. Martin's) was released this week.

The book comes out from Harper Collins August 4. Wendy Withers is pleased to report that after spending the last 26 years preparing and learning, she decided this is the year and wrote her first novel. Soon she'll start shopping for agents.
