Hilltop Notes

This is number one of who knows how many? It comes from a hilltop in Morganton, NC, with the Blue Ridge as our backdrop. It also comes from a writer--I think--who is looking for like minds and adventurous spirits. Well, maybe not too adventurous.
I have a book to promote, and I hope a second in the near future, and short stories to get some critiques on with an eye to finding a publisher for a collection...all the usual writerly requirements. It seems necessary to find out who's out there who might be willing to form a support group around those of us who find ourselves without a formal geographical region to call our own. Foothills? Table Rock?
I have a novel, released last month, that got some compliments. See Book Buzz for particulars. Another is due out "soon." Does anyone know what a publisher means by this?
As a well-known comedienne used to say: can we talk?

Joan, I like your blog. Good luck with it and with your writing. With your book listed on Book Buzz with NCWN I hope many readers will check it out. I will list this blog on my favorites and visit often.
For other writers of the mountains, I hope they will visit www.netwestwriters.blogspot.com to read the work of members of NCWN West and other writers we enjoy.

Hi Joan

I just saw you on the Virtual Blog Tour website. Welcome and I had to tell you that I'm within view of the Blue Ridge too - I'm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains :)
