Book Giveaway, Readings, and More!
Shara McCallum's, “In My Own Words,” brought me over the mountaintop. I’ve reached another peak in the life of this blog which began so innocently in December 2005 when my daughter (who is graduating this semester from FSU, summa cum laude) said to me, “You know, Dad, you should be blogging.”
This is the 200th post and I've had over 10, 000 hits since I started measuring on April 6, 2006. Yaaay! Where's Kermit the frog when you need him?
During the past year, the blog (while it has strayed sometimes) has remained true to the original mission: To highlight the work of writers from the Caribbean and South
What would you like to see more of on this blog?
What would you like to see less of on this blog?
Now to prove that this is a REAL big-time blog, leave a comment below with your name and choose a number between 1 and 101. Choice of numbers is first come, first served. You can't choose a number that someone else has chosen and say, "I thought of it first!"
The number that you’ve chosen will be entered in a random drawing courtesy of http://www.random.org/nform.html
The drawing will take place after the Miami Book Fair International. Winners will receive a copy of Iron Balloons autographed by Colin Channer, Marlon James, or Geoffrey Philp. Or perhaps all three of us will sign a book?I’ll then announce the winner and I’ll ask the winners to send me a snail mail address, so that I can mail it to them. If you just want to win and don’t want to send me your address, then I will donate the book to a worthy cause.
I’ve finished writing “Who’s Your Daddy?” and Other Stories and I now begin the fun part of editing and passing the manuscript around the dinner table for revision.
With the Miami Book Fair International coming up, maybe I can find a home for “Who’s Your Daddy?”, so I can move on to other some other projects I have in mind. Say a prayer for me.
We had a great reading last at MDC with Preston Allen, Joe McNair, and Joanne Hyppolite On Monday, I'll be posting the podcast of Preston Allen's reading from his new collection of short stories.
Have a great weekend!
