Author Sally Koslow Says Men Appreciate Her Novels, But She Doesn’t Spit On The Concept Of Women’s Fiction

The-Widow-Waltz-by-Sally-Koslow-334x500I connected with author Sally Koslow when I interviewed her about her third novel, With Friends Like These in 2011. Now, with the publication of Sally’s fourth novel, THE WIDOW WALTZ, Sally joins us again at Women’s Fiction Writers with her insights about writing fiction and non-fiction, exploring the threads of reinvention and widowhood and secrets, and digging into writing that is meaningful to us to make our own writing more meaningful. 

Both THE WIDOW WALTZ and THE GLASS WIVES were listed in Lilith Magazine’s Summer Suggestions! I was thrilled to be paired with Sally, who is a generous and compassionate writer friend and mentor. 

Please welcome Sally Koslow back to Women’s Fiction Writers!

Woo Hoo! 46 Women’s Fiction Writers Giveaway Winners Announced!

That’s right — 46 winners!!  I used ‘random.org’ to generate these names.  If your name is below please email me your snail mail address at womensfictionwriters@gmail.com with Giveaway Winner in the subject line. I’m going to copy/paste the address from the emails, so please send it to me the way it needs to appear on a mailing label. If I don’t hear from you by Monday, April 9, 2012, an alternate winner will be randomly chosen.

The books/gifts will also be randomly tucked into envelopes and then labels applied.  Some of you will receive e-gifts, also randomly chosen.  Books will come from me or from the author directly — whether in the mail or email.

If you do not receive your prize/book by April 21, 2012, please email me and let me know.

CONGRATULATIONS to these friends of Women’s Fiction Writers!

This is the order in which the names were plucked from the virtual hat.  My intention was to email everyone directly, but generating random numbers, matching them to corresponding comments, and listing the names here, has taken four cups of coffee — so in the interest of the rest of my day and the health of my innards, here you go:
