It’s Your Turn! Guest Blogs from Readers and Writers

This is the part of the web site where you get to express your ideas, questions, hopes, values, and thoughts in general about the challenges and excitements of writing, creating, and promoting your work – or to share the fun and thrill of what you’re reading.

I’m asking both readers and writers whom I know – and I’ll eventually go out on a limb and put out a call to some people I don’t know, but who I think will have something interesting to say.  The focus will be mainly on mystery/suspense, romance, fantasy, horror, SciFi, or YA, in keeping with the interests of most of my readers – but that doesn’t mean that I won’t have writers bring in topics or authors that you might not quite expect to fit these areas.  So, do respond here on this site or by sending me an email at syang@worcester.edu.  But keep it clean – Natasha will be watching!

 

If you have ideas for a blog appropriate to this site (250-500 words), contact me at thesyang@worcester.edu and I can see if your proposal would work.  All final decisions for editing rest with me (and my co-editor), since I’m the one everyone will blame if something looks hinky, content- or grammar-wise!

For this monthly feature, we’ll be starting with:

Post#1 June 26, 2018  “Travels with Cara” by Lisa Lieberman

Lisa Lieberman’s Cara Walden series is set in the 1950s, crossing Europe, at times in the sweeping mode of 1950s adventures and at other times in the shadowy atmosphere of the era’s noir films.  Lisa’s essay reveals how the historical research that undergirds an exciting,  realistic novel may unveil a dark past that is no less startling and moving for the writer.  You’ll love her two novels: All the Wrong Places  and Burning Cold.
