Call for submissions

I wonder what kind of S&M weirdos that title will bring to my blog. Hi, weirdos! But this isn't about THAT, it is about my friends Suzanne and Alex and their latest project.

One of my favorite parts of BlogHer is seeing women get inspired there and go out and do great things. The first year I went, there were a few books for sale by the women there. This year, there was a whole table full, so many that I had to step away lest I bankrupt myself supporting some of my favorite people.

When I first met Suzanne in 2006, she wasn't a published author. Now she is: her book Off the Beaten Subway Track: New York City's Best Unusual Attractions came out this summer and is topping the Amazon charts (well, it ought to be).

Now she and Alex are looking for submissions for their new effort, an anthology of period stories - I mean menstruation, not hockey - and they asked me to help get the word out.

I know there are some great stories out there. Mine is written and I am editing like mad.

If you would like to step up to the plate and take a swing, go to their website, Congratulations, You're a Woman Now! and check it out. The deadline is September 1, so don't dilly dally! And tell them Suebob sent you. It doesn't make me any money, but I want them to know how mighty and powerful I am.

Thanks for the kind words and the link! I can't wait to read your story and everyone else's. This is going to be so great.

hey Suebob - the linky link doesn't work. You have to go directly to their site. But cool idea anyway! My family has 3 girls, so my poor dad was just surrounded by woman talk.

Thanks for the head's up, Mary. All fixed now.

Do not ask me why I thought heads up needed an apostrophe.

Damn, when I posted this same thing (but in my words) I did not think to get credit for sending people over. ooooh you're lucky this isn't a contest!

Thank you so much, Suebob! I'm looking forward to reading your submission. We already got our first email from someone who was referred by you!
