The Best of Bellevue Literary Review


I am honored to announce that my story "Breathe", which won a literary prize, and which is also part of my just-finished novel Traveling Angels, is going to be part of The Best of Bellevue Literary Review, available now on Amazon.
I'm also honored, thrilled and exited to be reading from that piece at the AWP conference on Thursday, January 31. (Best of all, I get to read first, so I can relax sooner and enjoy the other readings instead of worrying.) So if anyone is going to be there, please come say hello to me. I'll be the one with the mop of hair wearing all black, except for my earrings which will probably be garish!

Congratulations!!! I wish I could be there. I'd love to eat chocolate in the front row while you read. -- JL

I saw one of your books at the library the other day and I got so excited. I know her!! I was thinking to myself. Of course I don't, but I know your blog, so it was still exciting. Congratulations about the story, that's great news.

Thank you both for responding so nicely. (You never know when someone is going to say, well maybe if you read better, I'd be there--) Jeff, you are a sweetie, and M, anytime you're in the area, call me up and meet me and we can go for cake!

By the way, I always get ridiculously excited when I see my books in the libraries, which are all writers best friends.

Susan, I am really really near sighted, so make sure to grab me, but I'll look for you. I can't wait to actually see you in person! And wonderful that you are on a panel AND part of BLR!
