  • Thank you for posting something like this. I know that sometimes you feature books and things related to books. I’m wondering if you will make books a permanent fixture on here maybe even starting a book club. I sent an email regarding my forthcoming novel. How can I get it featured on here?

    • Hi WriterDiva,

      We are gearing up for some changes on the site – and we are adding in new features. You can email us @ [email protected]



    • Thanks for responding, Dede. I sent my pitch. I hope I didn’t talk too much.

  • I must admit taking in all the headlines on this site can be negatively overwhelming even in it current daily truth, but seeing creative mashups like this refuels us. Keep the balance coming. More of this is need, more highlights like this remind us that we are not all noise and bark. We are in fact still eloquently and still relevant in our thoughts and our ideas.
    Thank you…

    Thank you, Ms. or Mr. Camara. As the young folks say, “this gave me life.”
