What about the happy? What about the uplifting, hopeful, fun, happy message we (okay, I, this is my opinion here) you do realize this is erica, right? want our kids to believe in?? Bring me that. I want it. I need it. It's almost summer and I don't necessarily need utopia, but I do want uplifting!! Publish your happy books and I will buy them and read them and recommend them yes, I am aware that the last three authors I blogged about wrote books about death, but hey, no one brought me happy or I'd talk about that, too!!!!
I took this from my front porch two years ago and it's one of my favorite pictures ever
I'm proud that my first ms is a happy, fun "beach read" (these are my own words, and no, not a logline :).
I need more. Know any other happy, fun beach reads that I can read this summer? Please share in the comments (or, you know, profess your undying love of dark books. I'll read them next winter, hehe).
Did I mention that Christy wants me to post a book/author starting with the appointed letter each and every day we post in April? Did I mention the end of the alphabet is hard? Well, if not, consider it mentioned. I'm just glad she's got V, X, and Z (there was a method to my madness of overtaking P and R last week on her days - ha!).
This is a U book I've read. I love Stephen King, but he does NOT inspire happy in me. Seriously, I need you guys to start to write happy!! Save me from my own melodrama!!
