wise women wrap-up


There's one last stop on the Wise Women Blog Tour today...

Judith Lothian, a nurse and childbirth educator with more than 30 years of experience, and co-author of The Official Lamaze Guide, interviews me for the Giving Birth With Confidence Blog. We chat about the restoration of the "real" birth house, the place of birth within the community, how birth is played out in fiction, and how characters reflect the past and present. (I'll also be doing some guest blogging over at the GBWC blog this next month!)

I've had a fantastic time during the WWBT and I hope you have too. I've come away from it with new friends, new ideas...feeling inspired, and fired-up! I may even try it again sometime with a different theme. (This time around the thme was "birth" - what next? Literary Wise Women?) If you have thoughts and suggestions, please leave a comment, or send an email!

See you in September...
Stay tuned for a literary turning of the leaves here at Incidental Pieces!

September 1 - I'll be guest blogging at The Happy Booker - part of the Lit-Blog Co-op. (I finally get to drive Wendi's i-pod!)

Congrats on all of your successes! It was exciting to see your interview in a blog I already read (Giving Birth With Confidence). :)
