Video: Amanda Gowin at Sylvester Memorial Library

the video!!! took forever to get this mess uploaded. i realize it’s an hour long, but at least stick around long enough for the church fire anecdote… plus i read a story. mainly i ramble. but i think it turned out pretty well! 

The Booked. Anthology as Discussed by ManArchy on the Last Day….

ManArchy is winding down, but the people behind the curtains – a ‘group’ of constantly in flux and in love group of writers, readers, and general lovers of all things they truly believe are cool (like writing and reading) shall sally forth!

One of the projects born of love and conversation is The Booked. Anthology, compiled by Robb Olson and Livius Nedin, edited by Pela Via. I have a story in there. So do most of the lovelies I’ve mentioned in this blog, and whose names run down the side of these posts in the blogroll.

Pela siad “Let’s talk about the Booked. Anthology and turn it into an article.”

The link leads to a typical example of what happens when any topic is introduced.

I love my writing peeps.

I still can’t believe I have writing peeps….

Curiouser and Curiouser (Mad, Mad Interview Blog)

i like to ask questions.

there are seven thousand author interview blogs, so why shouldn’t there be one more? the sister blog to Miss Ohio will be Curiouser and Curiouser, and i will ask many questions to many authors (25 in the line-up so far) and few of the questions will pertain to anything regarding writing. i can google bibliographies and birthdates and where people went to school, but maybe i want to know if a particular person wears shoes in the house or likes David Bowie or has ever been stabbed. maybe i just want to know what’s in your pockets.

there’s a ten question cap to keep me from getting out of control with the interrogations – and judging by the interviewing i’ve done so far, these brave and wonderful writers should thank whatever deity or synapse made me commit to ten. with the answers and stories and unexpected candidness, these would be Neverending Interviews without a cap – a dialogue that went on until my question mark finger dropped off or restraining orders were filed….

so! on with the useful information. Curiouser and Curiouser will post its first interview on TUESDAY MAY 1st. every following tuesday will be a new interview with a new writer – some questions will be different, some will be the same, some of the writers will be strangers and some will be names you know. i can promise you one thing: NONE of the answers will be boring.

the writers who have graciously agreed and even volunteered for this project are apparently incapable of being boring or average. i cannot thank them enough for participating. the interviews are spectacular based on the quality of the pictures they draw, not the frames i provide.

TUESDAY, MARCH 27th i will release the 5 Author Interview line-up for May.

for now, you can like the Curiouser and Curiouser Facebook Page and recieve a very, very conservative amount of updates, mainly to announce the Interview of the Week as those Tuesdays roll around:

the Curiouser and Curiouser site itself is still under construction, and the link will also be released on TUESDAY, MARCH 27th. the easiest way to be reminded of this is to like the Facebook page.

I’M SO FRICKIN’ EXCITED!!

you should be, too. it’s a bit insane that these people have agreed to talk to me and be so receptive to such questions.

i’ll see you on the sister site on Tuesday, May 1st, and until then hopefully on the Facebook page.

CURIOUSER AND CURIOUSER!

Happy Birthday, My Love!!!
