Lit Bit: Bathsheba Monk Explains Everything

Filed in Gather Books Essential by on July 23, 2008 0 Comments


Here in my weekly Lit Bit, I strive to provide readers with a quick fix of literature at least once each week.  Whether it’s advice from an experienced author, news about an upcoming literary event, a report on a conference or reading, thoughts about a writing process, or sharing a recently published work, you can count on Writeful to give you your lit bit fix.


But sometimes, you may want another writer’s perspective – someone who can explain everything simply.


Just for fun, check out Bathsheba Monk’s new blog, Bathsheba Monk Explains Everything.  Bathsheba has discovered the instant gratification of blogging while she finishes up her next book, a novel, Nude Walker which will be published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux in 2010.  Nude Walker is a follow up to her popular book Now You See It … Stories from Cokesville, PA.
