Recently Deb Beddoe of The Well Writer Chats and I talked book genres generally, and literary fiction specifically—and how Sugar Birds found its market categories. The recording went live on her YouTube channel and her IG Summer School Edition @The_Well_Writer this week. This was my first go at a podcast-style recording, so I hope you can look past my nerves and, if you’re a writer, find something useful either for positioning your work in the market or for your writing process.
For those of you reading Sugar Birds, this interview’s a fun glimpse at the book’s creation.
And around our place this past week, these pics, posted earlier to SM:
When the tiniest cottontail runs from your dogs into your laundry room . . .
. . . you wrap it in a towel and carry it to safety. .
“You are my hiding place;you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
Hold that thought.
“Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”
Fast food. 🧡
