Hats Off! to Debra Madaris Efird whose essay "Empty Pocketbook, Boundless Love" appears in That Southern Thing (Personal Story Publishing Project, 2020). In this anthology, forty-two writers from around the South—now or formerly—share personal stories of their living, loving, laughing, loathing, and even leaving this unique, quirky, welcoming, troubled, challenging, and always interesting region. That Southern thing, whatever it is binds them and us together by geography, family, history, choice, happenstance, misfortune, and, for some, “by the grace of God.”


Hats Off! to Valerie Nieman whose novel To the Bones is the April Read of the Month on Southern Literary Review. "Edgy suspense, Scottish paranormal legend, and a beautiful river transformed into a wicked orange brew—these ingredients in the skilled hands of journalist Valerie Nieman create a whip-smart novel."


Hats Off! to Tom Wood whose short story "A Night on the Town," co-authored with Nashville author Michael J. Tucker, is out now and available for download. Also, Tom's article "Little virus that can topple skyscrapers: Supply chain interruptions threaten Middle Tennessee building boom" appeared in Friday's Nashville Ledger.
