IWW writers' publication successes~

Barry Basden:
A-Minor has published "Hints of the Blitz, 1940." Thanks to all who helped with it.

My poem, "The Trapper Boy at Work One Mile under Ground," is reprinted in the Winter Issue of Copperfield Review. The poem and the haunting photo that inspired it can be seen at CPR.

Ann Hite:
Ghost On Black Mountain got its first blurb yesterday:

"Pull up a rocker and gaze into the hills at sundown. Old-time front porch storytelling unfolds in this dark, twisted tale where hardscrabble lives, murderous secrets, and ghosts intersect on a mysterious mountain."—Beth Hoffman, bestselling author of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt

You got to love it!

My thanks to Kathy Highcove, who gave me the opportunity to be the February guest writer at "In Focus," the monthly newsletter of the California Writers' Club, West Valley branch.  

My contribution is a very short story called "Sharing the Pain." Scroll down to page 12.

Tom Mahony:
My flash, "Coast Live Oak" is up at Grey Sparrow Journal:

My second novel, Flooding Granite, will be published by Casperian Books in Fall 2011. Here's a description of the book.

Myra Nelson:
My essay is live at Willows Wept as a guestpost. 

Years ago, I wrote a reflective essay on snow, and subbed it to the nonfiction list, then I waited until it snowed.

I couldn't find the piece last year, when my hometown, Philadelphia, got pummeled. I found it this year, and submitted it to the Philadelphia Inquirer, but I didn't hear from them, and I really wanted to do something with the essay before the snow stopped.

So, when somebody here sent in a yahoo about Willows Wept Review, I thought, why not?

I just heard from them that they'd like to use my essay as a guest post on their blog. Yay!

L. Pepper Norris:
I just got word that my romantic comedy, Love Potion No. 2-14, hit the bestseller list at All Romance eBooks. I am so excited I can hardly sit still to type.

My two new releases from eTreasures are out! Love Potion No. 2-14 at Amazon and Love Transposed,
which is a free read at smashwords.

I've been doing a happy dance and just had to share.

Pat St. Pierre:
Pond Ripples magazine has just published a photo of mine for February 5th.

Jack Shakely:
My review of Sitting Bull, Prisoner of War is in the January/February issue of ForeWord Review Magazine. It's the story of what happened to Sitting Bull after Little Big Horn. He died a broken man who sold his autograph for a dollar and performed with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show to keep his large family fed.

Mona Vanek:
A yahoo about spinoffs that keep happening as a result of the feature article I published on my web site ( to give Katie Youngren, a new author, some publicity about her book, Itty Bitty Schoolbus Kitty.

Katie is bubbling over with excitement because all the interviews she's had since then. It's so heartwarming. Can't help but make me smile. Also, in a radio interview (that airs Monday at 9 a.m. on 106.9) my is mentioned "at least eight times" she said. She also said a Yahoo or Bing search for Itty Bitty
Schoolbus Kitty now brings up my web site in number one place. However, a quick search with Bing (this morning) popped up it up number two, and also brought the following sites, including Internet Writing Workshop. How cool is that? Just goes to show how fast publicity expands exponentially these days.

Hits to my web sites have already increased, and I wonder if IWW is being hit, too, as a result of Katie's interviews.

Joanna M. Weston:
One of my poems, 'Lions', has been reprinted in 'Living the Edges: a disabled women's reader', edited by Diane Driedger, and published by Inanna Publicantions and Education Inc.. I'm particularly pleased to be in this anthology.

Ruth Zavitz:
My article "Antique Apples" has just been published in Country Connection. They accepted it as written which is too bad because, seeing it now in print, I want to change some things. Does revision ever end?
