What to Read Now: Summer 2016
#reading, #writing

Another season, another What to Read post for Jen over at EffortlessChic.com. As quiet as I’ve been on the blog, the great news is that it’s in large part the result of having finished my second manuscript (which is now out with some critique partners/beta readers for that revision stage that is both so painful and necessary and wonderful all at once). My hope is to pick back up with some content here now. I’ve got an essay coming out soon on a popular writing website that I’m excited to share (it highlights my journey finishing this latest book of mine—with a rather unexpected ‘Hamilton’ connection!) and my summer goal is to resume with my What I’m Loving posts, but for now, here’s a peek at what I’ve been (and will be) reading in the weeks/months to come!

My Summer Reading List and for a long view, check out my picks for winter 2016, fall 2015, summer 2015, winter 2015, fall 2014, and summer 2014.

Chuck happily obliged my request to help as a freelance contributor and so, for the past two years, I’ve done exactly that—curating dozens of New Agent Alerts (which are a GREAT way to learn about the industry and agents who are eager for debut novelists) along with …

My Q&A with Director and Screenwriter Angelo Pizzo

What a thrill it was this fall to interview Hoosier director and screenwriter Angelo Pizzo. This is the man who has written some of the best sports films of all time (Hoosiers and Rudy among them) and this November he’s back with another, My All American, a movie he wrote and directed about Texas football star Freddie Steinmark, an undersized but determined high school player who lead the Texas Longhorns to the 1969 national championship before a dramatic diagnosis sidelines …
