The TMI October 16, 2022

I am waiting to hear about my application to Storyknife to win a women's writing residence opportunity to focus on my writing with zero distractions in ALASKA! It is the kind of immersive adventure that my soul cries out to experience. As a mother, when you wear a million hats, your dreams get pushed to the side in favor of the more important work of keeping small people alive. If you're lucky, or as determined as I am, you carve out swatches of time in between obligations to take small steps to fulfill your biggest dream. This opportunity gives me the luxury of time to boldly pursue it in a selfish way that leaves me breathless. I have never wanted something more. 

I had to submit a chapter of my current work as part of the application, so I wanted to share it with you. Read it here:

When Wren Came Out LGBTQ+ Ally Fiction by Best Selling womens fiction authorBlair Bryan

Currently Watching:

The Sinner Season 4. Bill Pullman plays a tortured retired detective who befriends a woman who disappears. Each season is a stand alone and binge worthy. 

Currently Reading:

The Candy House. This book is a departure from my normal reads and is very smart requiring me to highlight words for definition and growing my vocabulary. I'm only about 25% of the way in, but I can already tell it's going to be a great ride. There is a lyrical poetry aspect and finding novelty in the mundane in the way Jennifer Egan writes. I can see why she won a Pulitzer.  (Affiliate link alert. If you buy from this link, I earn a few pennies for this recommendation and you get a great book.)

Hawt Flashes. Coming 2023. 

It's humorous paranormal women's fiction. It's my first foray into the supernatural, but it won't be my last. SO. MUCH. FUN.

P.S. If you've read one of my books, can you help an author on the quest to become a New York Times Bestseller out? Reviews are gold and help me reach more people. Please take a minute and tell me (and other readers) what you thought. You can review on Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes and Noble, KOBO, and Apple Books or at any other bookseller. It's even better if you copy and paste the review to multiple places. More reviews=More visibility. You can write as much or as little as you want and I would be forever in your debt.
