The Northern Colorado Writers Facebook Page
Have I mentioned this page to you and how much I want you "Like" us? I did that already?
Okay, but let me give you one more reason why you want to check us out from time to time and see what we're up to. Starting this Friday, for instance, we'll be posting weekly fun questions or challenges. Who know, we might even give something away from time to time. You'll never know if you don't stay tuned. You don't have to belong to Facebook to see our page, but you do need a Facebook account to "Like" us or participate in NCW Q&As or challenges. Find us right here.
What I'm Reading and a Note About Breaking the Rules
Fannie Flagg's Can't Wait to Get to Heaven. A note for writers: Fannie Flagg breaks rules about long passages of narrative, wandering point of view, and excessive use of adverbs and adjectives. She does it brilliantly, creating wonderful stories I can't put down (thereby depriving me of sleep). I am in awe of her talent. If you haven't read any of her novels, I highly recommend my personal favorite, Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! Learn how to break the rules and do it right!
The Prairie Grass Murders and The Desert Hedge Murders
I'm sure it's been a while since I reminded you that The Prairie Grass Murders is now available as an eBook for Kindle and Nook. And even longer since I told everyone The Desert Hedge Murders is still available in paperback from Harlequin Worldwide Mystery. So there. Consider yourself reminded (and feel free to spread the word...I won't mind).
