News from Alaska and farther afield

Dear steadfast reader,

I’m a little worn out today. As you will soon see, I’ve been busy with  more than just sledding down our driveway and shelving books at Fireside Books. These past two weeks I’ve also been fortunate enough to participate in some wonderful interviews. So today, I’m going to kick back, relax, and let everyone else do the writing. Here are two links for you to follow:

Melodie Wright, Alaskan author and blogger

Have you ever wanted to know how many cords of wood we burn each year to keep our house warm, or how I found my literary agent? Here’s a Q&A with Alaskan author Melodie Wright who was so kind as to feature me on her blog, Forever Rewrighting. I loved her questions!

I also chatted on the telephone with British journalist Charlotte Williams, who writes for The Bookseller, the UK equivalent of Publishers Weekly. The article came out today, and can be found online here. Much gratitude to Charlotte for writing such a kind article, and to Alaskan photographer Stephen Nowers for a photograph of me that doesn’t make me cringe.

    I was able to read the article and the blog interview. Both are great! I love the example of how big a cord of wood is. I’m an excellent wood-packer. Also, your description of how you got an agent is encouraging for writers without one (yours truly).

    Thanks Sarah and Vivian!

    And for you grammar scouts out there, I had that I am a little “wore out” and I think maybe it should have been a little “worn out”, so I changed it. But now I’m not sure. Which is it? (My copy editor is unavailable for consult:)
