And, the winner is . . . 

I used a random number generator to choose a name, and as coincidence would have it, the winner is Jill who lives right up the road.  I'm tickled pink that she won, but feel kinda odd about it too - so if y'all will bear with me, I'll have another give-away in a few months.  I hope you'll come back and leave your name in the hat again for a copy of WOMEN'S SPACES WOMEN'S PLACES.  I'll give a shout when I'm ready to do that.  In the meantime, I thank you all for your interest, it means a lot.  Hugs!!!

I had a give-away when one of my essays was accepted for publication in CLOTHES LINES from 75 western North Carolina women writers a couple years ago, and now I'm tickled pink to have another give-away.

This is for a copy of WOMEN'S SPACES WOMEN'S PLACES from 50 western North Carolina women writers.  I'm every bit as proud of this anthology as I am the first one, and am over the moon about having had another essay included with this group of talented women.

We can thank Celia Miles and Nancy Dillingham for both anthologies.  They are tireless advocates for women writers.  Both these women, talented writers in their own right, take time from their work and busy schedules to help other women get their work out there and promote it.  Including their support of The Candy Maier Scholarship Fund, which is a “go to” site if you are a woman who wants to take a class, workshop, conference having to do with writing and need some financial assistance. Founded to honor writer/friend Candy Maier, The Candy Fund assists with up to half the cost (to $250) with few restrictions imposed.  

My hat is off to both of them - they own a little piece of my heart and my endless thanks, along with a great deal of admiration and respect.

How gorgeous is this cover, by the way??  It's by Karen Hollingsworth.  You can see more of her work here:

Both WOMEN'S SPACES WOMEN'S PLACES and CLOTHES LINES are available at many North Carolina independent book stores, or you can contact Celia at  to receive one directly through the mail.

Here's a few links with a little bit to say about WSWP -

If you'd like to drop your name in the hat for a chance to win a copy of WOMEN'S SPACES WOMEN'S PLACES, please just leave a comment including your email address.  I'll draw a name and mail off a copy to the winner this coming Wednesday, June 20th.
