Write On, Wednesday: Lacy Crawford, author of EARLY DECISION!

By Leslie Lindsay I am thrilled and honored to have Lacy Crawford, author of EARLY DECISION (William Morrow, 2013) with us today. Being a Chicago-based writer, I related to much to witnin the pages of this book [the novel takes place on the Gold Coast and in the city]. As a mother myself, I can honestly say it begins with daycare. Yes, I am talking about the frenzy to get your child into the best learning institution ever. In fact, as a mother, you may have sauntered into a coffee shop, a belly swollen with baby to interview a prospective nanny. Before the kid is even born! You fret over the experience, snapping knuckles and making lists, scratching things off. Once you get that taken care of, you realize your prized preschool has a waiting list.

Coming Up: Authors! Books! Give-a-ways! Interviews!

By Leslie Lindsay Don’t you just love, love, love a good book?  How about when that writer is equally cool? And she graciously offers a complimentary copy? Well, then you’ll be thrilled to learn that we will soon be meeting two wonderful authors who will be doing just that! Laura McHugh is a debut psychological/family saga thriller writer from the heartland. Missouri, that is–who will be sharing her book, THE WEIGHT OF BLOOD (March, 2014). Think gritty Ozark moutains, a missing girl, family secrets. Lacy Crawford writes with elegence and humor in her debut EARLY DECISION, based on the college admissions process, the elusive college essay, and the wealthy kiddos that don’t (always) have a clue. A must read for any parent about to send their kiddos off to the wild blue yonder,high school english teachers, and so many more! Wednesdays right here are the days to watch–that’s when you just might get to “meet” one of these lovely ladies and enter to WIN a complimentary copy of their books. Happy reading!
