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

Ready for my book signing with my dear friend Rhonda. Even if the barista spelled my name wrong on my Americano. And yes, my hair never looks this good IRL. I just very intelligently scheduled a haircut before this appearance. #amwriting #bookstagram #authorsofinstagram #authorappearance #rochmn
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.
