More News on Eve!

Tonight, I’m reading at Open Book in Minneapolis–the home, too, of The Loft Literary Center–both of which are staunch supporters of writers.  I know.  I was one of the recipients of their Loft Mentor Series in 2003-2004, and it was a wonderful experience.  It wasn’t until then I began to see that writing was a personal thing; many writers can tell you how they write, but they can’t tell you how you should write.  That’s what takes years–the ability to know when you’re good enough to acquire look-sees by agents and editors.  It’s not easy.  At least it wasn’t for me.

So, if you’re in the neighborhood tonight, pop in and say “hi.”

More Eve reviews have arrived–Paste Magazine (Mar/Apr 2009), under their Books section, and from my editor at Books & Culture, which can be found here.  You can also find snippets of them on the Media Page.

Since I’ve promised Dan I won’t Google my name, I can only bring you the reviews that are either sent to me or that I know are coming down the pike, thanks to my publicist or editors.  There are just too many people’s opinions out there, and as an artist (for that’s what I consider myself) I have to stay true to myself, in what I’m trying to accomplish, if that makes sense.

Enjoy your day, and whatever the color of your ground (snow, grass, mud), stop and breathe deeply of this wonderful life you’ve been given.

The quote I live by

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.
--Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
