I’ve added a few items to the Literary Ashland blogroll. We’ve already got some great local publishers listed: Ashland Creek Press, which (check out Midge Raymond’s new book Everyday Book Marketing), Krill Press, which features mysteries and Ken Lewis’s excellent cover designs, Molly Best Tinsley and Karetta Hubbard’s FUZE Publishing, Tod Davies’s Exterminating Angel Press (Practical solutions for Creative Idealists”) and Steve Scholl’s White Cloud Press (their latest is The Shark’s Paintbrush). I’ve also been featuring Melody Editing, the site of the wonderful Melody Condon, copyeditor extraordinaire.
What’s new? Chickens, for one thing.
Julie Anne Christie Akins’s THE CHICKEN DIARIES tell the story of Julie, her daughter Angela and grandduahgter Kyra are they raise childens. And it tells the life lessons that they learns from Rosey Marie, Rosemary, Flower, Dandelion and Star Moon, Henny Penny and Happy (the rooster).
Rich Wandschneider’s blog on The Alvin M. and Betty Josephy Library of Western History and Culture, is dedicated to news of events, book reviews, note on The Josephy Library library holdings, and Rich Wandschneider’s research and observations on western history and its broader lessons.
And I’ve added my colleague Lynne Murphy Separated by a Common Language. She teaches at the University of Sussex (and tweets as Lynneguist) and her blog tracks—and digs into–British and American language distinctions.
