Sunday Salon: What We Said, Read & Wrote

Well, if you've been by this week, you know it's been quiet. As many of you know, I'm at a new job and in class all day. I take a major exam tomorrow. I feel good about it and yes, I'll be studying for it later today.

Exciting news for Zetta. Amazon has its own publishing division and they are publishing Zetta's, A Wish After Midnight. Check out Tashi's review and interview at Taste Life Twice and support one of our own. By the way, I love books for Christmas. I'm just saying.

We've had a good week in terms of mail. Thanks to Jodie for sending us donations. We'll talk about those over the holiday weekend. This weekend, I picked up books for our CORA Diversity Roll Call Challenge. We're looking at early readers. You all know how I feel about kids reading so do join us. To get a sneak preview, check out my Saturday Six Sentences at Black-Eyed Susan's.

To all winners, expect books in a week or so. The post office will tell you it takes up to three weeks but my experience says more like 7-10 days. Don't forget about our Bum Magnet Giveaway and do drop me an email if you're interested in reviewing Searching for Tina Turner.

This week I finished Paper Towns by John Green. Thanks Edi at Crazy Quilts for sending me the book. I need to find out how to pass it on. I'm finishing up Stealing Buddha's Dinner (see my sss post) and will be reading all evening except when I'm studying. Have you checked out Women Unbound? You should. Who's going to represent Color Online?

If you have news, concerns or requests, please drop me an email. Because of my crazy schedule, I need to make a request. Please let me know about links for Color Me Brown or if you have a review you'd like to have featured here. Normally, I scout all week but I currently don't have Internet access during the day. Thanks again to Doret from Happy Nappy Bookseller for stepping up as an admin. We've been talking and working. You can expect a full week of posts here soon. Tell us what's going on in your world. Know that we support you.

Pick up a book and have a great week. Happy reading.

Hi Ari,

Oh, yes. Check at Black-Eyed Susan's. Green is hilarious!

Who knew Amazon was also a publisher! I love that they're called "Encore" -- as in, we all applauded for Zetta in the first place, now they're bringing her back for an encore.

Go head, Ms. Zetta.

Exams...ick. But I love that you're calm and prepared--ace it, Susan! and thank YOU and all your followers for supporting Wish from the Neesha said, it's a victory for the *team* and not just for me personally.

I'm so glad you broadcast about Wish being published. And isn't the cover fantastic?

Lafreya said...

Love the new cover art

Doret said...

I was recruited for my hardwork not my visual skills. Susan will still be doing all of that.

Glad you enjoyed Paper Towns, Susan.

Jodie said...

I preordered my copy of Wish for next year, so excited that this book is getting attention.

Eva said...

I'm so happy for Zetta! :) Also, we haven't forgotten about you and the Women Unbound Challenge! You should be receiving an e-mail about guest posting soon.

Congratulations, Zetta! And I love the cover. I liked the old one, too, but it's great to have a fresh face for your well-deserved Encore.

Renee said...
