Lately I’ve been enjoying online conversations through a members-only e-correspondence. Join my Kismuth community to get:
- A personalized, exclusive e-mail to your inbox every Thursday morning (7am US EST)
- Opportunities to meet, via that community, with others who care about writing and telling honest stories
- Real-time updates on where I am in Viet Nam with my four year old and what comes out of his mouth about Asia
- First dibs on new releases, like Flight of Pisces
Here are the themes for 2013 e-mails to the Kismuth community:
Who would like Kismuth?…
This one’s for the dreamers.
The people who wonder, out loud, how things might be if we had more poetry in our lives. For nothing makes us appreciate more honestly the beauty there is in life than its opposite: death.
How much is too much to trade for a promise of love?, asks a chapter of Kismuth called The Elopement,a question so universal the local NPR station got me on air. “It’s something we can all relate to,” said host Frank Stasio, talking with me about what ensues when we defy our parents’ resistance to marry our own choice of mate. It’s taken me 10 years to write this book, but it was worth it to gain the time and distance that can only come from living a little, and seeing what’s universal (and what’s just your own “mess.”) People are sharing bright reviews for releases of chapters as eBooks: Vol. II The Elopementand Vol. III The Dive. More is coming this year, and I’ll update with announcements on the e-mail dispathes to Kismuth’s community.
