Cincinnati, Friends and the Southern Style

I know it's been a week, but before we get down to work, I wanted to share the great weekend we had with our dear friends, Bruce & Bonnie. They recently moved to  Cincinnati and we were their first visitors. The neighborhood they live in is a wonderful blend of old and new. (Note the photos) Quaint restaurants, boutique shops and bridges that took you across the river from Covington, KY (which is really where they live) to downtown Cincinnati. Enjoy the photos!

We walked and walked through a wonderful Farmer's Market, through the Taste of Cincinnati, through lovely riverside parks and tree lined streets, across at least five bridges, around an outdoor mall, you name it, we walked it! My feet are still dangling stubs at the end of my legs. We had a ball! We even had a chance to visit their children and grandchildren, which was such a rich and wonderful experience. To see how these kids have grown into such fine young people was a true blessing! A great time was had by all! Plus, Bonnie & I once again, beat the boys at Sequence!

Now, for the work part, I found an editor who is looking for "works that represent the entire range of the Southern experience, including all races, genders, and views on life." She accepts fiction, nonfiction and creative non-fiction.

The reading period is from March 15-June 15, and August 15-December 15, so time is short. 90% of her writers are  new or emerging writers so this is a great opportunity for those of you who might write to the Southern way of life.

  1. Thanks for the pix of Cincinnati. Never been there -- even though I read a lot about it-- one of my characters in DON hails from Cincinnati.

  2. It is a great place full of lots of culture and life! You must visit! How could you know what your "Don" lived like without a visit?


Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
