Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood

One comment

Congrats to these LM staffers!

~~~ Amy Stockwell Mercer, former Columnist and Blog Editor: "My first interview promoting my book, A Smart Woman's Guide to Diabetes, was a big success! Heather and Jeff of Transforming Diabetes talked with me about the process of writing the book as well as some personal stories of my life with diabetes."

Editor's Note: Look for an in-depth interview with Amy and the chance to win a copy of her book in late August!

~~~ Suzanne Kamata, Fiction Editor: "I published a couple of stories - Blue Murder in Asia Literary Review, and Dolphin Day in Ladybug. And: My new book The Beautiful One Has Come: Stories, which includes several stories about motherhood, was officially published!"

~~~ Caroline Grant, Editor-in-Chief: "I'm excited to share news of my new book deal! I've been working on an anthology of food essays with LM Contributor Lisa Harper, and Shambhala Publications is going to publish it in the fall of 2012. The collection is called "The Dish: Making the Food that Makes Your Family," and includes pieces by LM contributors Elrena Evans, Libby Gruner, and Deesha Philyaw, as well as essays by Catherine Newman, Neal Pollack, Pete Wells and others. Lisa and I keep a blog with family food stories and recipes - you can find it here."

~~~ Christina Marie Speed, Literary Reflections Editor: "I just had three poems published as a poet-guest of my friend and fellow poet Rae Spencer in July's edition of Contemporary American Voices. Rae and I were in a critique group together before I moved to Brooklyn. She assisted me in tending two of the three poems published as a part of this selection."
