In an interview posted yesterday, Joyce Hinnefeld shared insight into the genesis of her novel In Hovering Flight.  Today she shares a few anecdotes about a special bookstore:

Rant for a Friday afternoon …

Is it too bold for me to think that some of you have missed me this week?  After NaBloPoMo (which I NaBlew in the first week, but I kept going), when I posted almost every day in the month on November, She is Too Fond of Books has been remarkably dark and quiet these past [...]

The Week Ahead: November 10 – 16, 2008

It’s actually a fairly quiet week, bookish and otherwise, on my calendar this week.  That’s a relief, because I can already feel the frenzy of the holiday season around the corner, and it will be nice to relax a bit and catch up on “things” around here!  Of course, now that I’ve said that, my [...]
