One Writer's Beginnings, as Eudora Welty shows us, come from our light in relation to the world around us. She is one of my favorite short story writers. So when I read the manuscript for Footsteps: In Love with a Frenchman by Susan M. Tiberghien, I fell in love with the simple, everyday stories of life and decided to publish them under my imprint Red Lotus Studio Press. The difference is that Tiberghien writes nonfiction. These essays about falling in love, raising six children in five European countries, speaking three languages, are real. Imagine, if you will, a European Brady Bunch with discriminating tastes and better table manners. These essays are all too human and funny.
For Labor Day weekend, I placed the eBook on FREE promotion for you.
There is much to learn about how writers become writers. In Susan's essays, we see her process evolve and gain insight into the risks she took in her career. My favorite essay is Emilia's Petition. Would you sign it? Read the essay and let me know!
Best wishes, dear readers, for a happy Labor Day weekend!
