How to look beautiful to an author….

Hold up their book.

I’m not sure I’ve seen a better looking group of folks than the University of Kentucky’s K-Crew, holding up copies of Where Am I Wearing? They’re using WEARING as a common reader this fall.

We’re going to have so much fun….

That moment when you realize that an agent wants your book

You write and you write and you write. You have so many insecurities and questions.

“Is anyone else ever going to read this?”

“Will I allow anyone else to read this?”

Deep down you think that just maybe this book that you’ve slaved away at might be something. You go to the Midwest Writers Conference. You learn to pitch an agent. You pitch one agent and then another agent, and before it’s all said and done EVERY agent at the conference is interested in your book!

Right when this sinks in, I stick a camera in your face.

Your name is Summer Heacock (aka @fizzygrrl) ,go…

After Summer’s soliloquy of squee, Jama, the workshop’s directors, says, “This is why I do this.”

Like Jama, and hopefully like Summer, the conference played…

Green Festival LA Today

As reported in the LA Times (!!!!), I’ll be speaking at the Green Festival today alongside Chris Yura of Sustain U. So, if you are in the area, stop in.  You can come for free.  Just tell them at the entrance that you are one of the speaker’s guests and then tell them you are my guest at the registration table.

Find me and I’ll buy you an organic beer or Fair Trade coffee.

Free entrance, free beer. How’s that for brightening a rainy Saturday in LA?

Women helping migrants like Amilcar

Central American migrants ride atop trains to make a better life for their families in the United States. In some places, the locals are sick of the migrants and throw rocks at them, in others they throw bread. The women in this video are throwing bread and they rock.

So thankful people like this helped my friend Amilcar on his three month journey.

(Thanks to Rachel Taber of Alta Gracia for pointing me to this)…

Simon Tatum will blow your mind

Simon Tatum will blow your mind

“Hello.”

“Hello, Kelsey, this is Simon Tatum. How are you jolly ol’ chap?” (Simon is British and I don’t think he actually says jolly ol’ chap, but that’s what I hear.)

“How’s life in Hollywood?” I ask, back home in Muncie, Indiana, where it’s almost dinner time.  I have spit up on my shirt and I may or may not have pee on my pants.  I’m not an invalid; I have kids, which is close to the same thing when you think about it.

“Well, Kelsey, that’s why I’m calling you.  I’m shooting a pilot. Would you be interested in being in it?”

This was in November and I was traveling out to…
