Major major progress is being made on the building of our new website home and newsletter for Rose & Thorn Journal. Myself and Kat Magendie, author of Tender Graces and hard at work on her sequel Secret Graces, hope when we have our open house, you'll come check out the new digs for our shiny sweet literary journal. The fall issue will be out next month on the fifteenth! (**Major kudos to Team Toups for the webmastering and construction, and to Susan Kramer for the newsletter revamping!)

It wasn't easy, but I've finally had a chance to choose my Guest Bloggers for the rest of the year."So that's the scoopage from Gumbo Writer. May your week begin and continue in the same good vein. And since I'm on a roll...anybody wanna come tackle this mound of dirty clothes in the laundry room for me? Okay, well I love ya anyway! :D
