My friend Noel did an article for In Los Angeles Magazine, and asked me for a quick blurb/recommendation. I was happy to oblige. The article is here.
My answer is the book pictured, Dirty Girls on Top, by Alisa Valdes Rodriguez.
Summer is a great time for reading, and I would like to hear about what you're reading this summer.
Summer is also a great time for catching up on writing projects... like me working toward my Labor Day deadline to finish up the new book.
Like Tayari Jones, who's been away for a couple weeks on a summer writing retreat, and has done like 53 pages in that time.
Gotta love summer relaxation and productivity!
