I don’t know–maybe my online universe is expanding–but within the past week or so there’s been a wave of happy news shared by *several* people in my writing community. These are genuinely nice people as well as genuinely gifted writers, so I’m moved to give them all a public shout-out right here.
David Ebenbach–he of multiple genre gifts–will see his first full-length poetry book, We Were the People Who Moved, published by Tebot Bach, as the winning title for the latest Patricia Bibby First Book Award.
From Michelle Brafman: “I’m very happy to announce that Washing the Dead, my first novel, will be published by Prospect Park Books in June of 2015.” Just a few weeks ago, Michelle shared that Shebooks will be releasing an e-book of hers, We Named Them All, later this summer.
Karen E. Bender’s story collection, Refund, will be published by Counterpoint in January 2015. (Here’s my take on Bender’s most recent novel, A Town of Empty Rooms.)
Many hearty congratulations to all.
