Friday Fare: 6/21/19

We’re light on the articles of note this week.  There’s been good stuff out there, but it’s been a looooooooonnnnngggggggg week.  Here’s some stuff I’ve read:

Career Authors is the blog that keeps on giving.  Paula Munier had a fabulous “Ten Commandments” for writers.

Marie Claire published a sobering piece about “invisible victims” – Native American women who’ve disappeared without a trace and the effort made by other Native American women to find them.  Heartbreaking.

I have an unabashed girl crush on Taffy Brodesser-Akner (to the extent that I am sad that her debut novel and its book tour won’t be coming to the Midwest.  Dammit!).  I love reading her articles and clicked through nearly every link that GQ posted in their Tweet honoring her debut novel.  (PS – Google search “Taffy Brodesser-Akner Sugar Daddies GQ” – it is worth the click.)

Listening: I miss David Bowie.  And I usually am fairly “meh” on covers, but this one was not terrible:

Reading:  Reading Layne Fargo’s forthcoming “Temper.”  So very good.

Writing Life:  I had a wonderful time with Rhonda Gilliland earlier this month at the Kahler Grand Hotel (Peacock Books).  We had an event in support of her Cooked To Death anthologies.

I even wore mascara.  And didn’t stab myself in the eye with the wand. #winning

Happy Friday!

What is Friday Fare? As a recap, on Fridays I post link love to the various bits of arcane shiz I discover on the Interwebs.  I liken it to a glimpse into my mind, but without the 80s song lyrics or mental cobwebs.
