Hello there. Hope you have a bowlful of your favorite candy ready for the trick-and-treaters, and that you have plenty of leftovers, which you can then eat yourself when Halloween is over. Sugar high for everyone!
Woo-hoo. Big congrats are in order. Solace in So Many Words contributor Joan Corwin is the winner of the 2017 Tom Howard/ John H. Reid Fiction Prize for her story “Length of Days.” You can read it here.
Two members of my writing group (The Writers) have new books. Laurie Levy’s novel is called The Stendhal Summer and is out from Amika Press. She was just interviewed last night on WGN radio by Rick Kogan on his After Hours program.
A. X. McNeally has a memoir out called Family Dinners–A Memoir of Hard Times, Hope, and Laughter.
How about you? Are you writing? Are you reading? Hope so.

Peace, love, and solace
