Friday Faves is a weekly blog feature in which I highlight two of my favorite things. One is personal, just for fun; the other is publishing industry related, but not promotional. You can expect lots of photos and personal anecdotes. Prepare to enter the promo free zone…
This week’s personal fave is…Poppies!
I grew up in the high desert of southern California (Antelope Valley). The desert is brown, dusty. and dead most of the year, but in April the hills would blaze with poppies, and busloads of tourists swoop in to take pictures. Around town, poppies would spring up here and there, but outside of town the hills looked as if they were on fire. Poppies are beautiful when in bloom, but since they’re wildflowers, when they’re not blooming, they look like weeds.
I no longer live where there are poppies, but I do have several pieces of art to remember them by. This is an original watercolor I bought at an art fair years ago.
My photos aren’t so great. Check out the Antelope Valley Poppy Preserve on Facebook.
There’s even a poppy festival, which is where I think I bought the watercolor.
And this week’s publishing fave is…an erotic fiction authors’ survey
Emmanuelle DeMaupassant is surveying erotic fiction authors about the genre, why they write it, where they get inspiration, their publishing history, etc. She is looking for authors to take the survey. You can participate anonymously or use your name. You can receive a name mention and a link when she reports the results. If you are interested, email Emmanuelle at firstname.lastname@example.org and put SURVEY REQUEST in the subject line. Note: Emmanuelle needs the surveys completed by March 15, so if you’re interested in participating, act fast.
