One of my personal goals has been to publish a book or to contribute heavily toward a book which would do more than sit on my coffee table or rest on a shelf in my home. While I have not completely realized that dream yet -- "Patches and Pins", my first effort in writing is still with two major editing houses after a year and may be out later this year (I know...I keep saying that...but I'm more hopeful now than before!) -- I am extremely excited to let you know about this effort.
Gisela von Brunn, Will Harrison, Jeannie Mobley, Steve Pulley, Leslie S. Russell, S. Michele Smith, Mary Kay Williams and me, all members of the Internet freewrite group, Coffee House Percolator for Writers, got to talking one day back in 2005 and thought it would be a brilliant idea to put together a collection of their short stories, poems, and essays and publish them in a book: Brewed Awakenings.
If you want to know more about "Brewed Awakenings" (and even purchase a copy of your own), I invite you to go to: http://www.lulu.com/brewedawakenings This is our storefront http://www.lulu.com/content/265765 ; this is our purchase page, and also where you can download a free preview of the book.
If you would like to purchase a copy, there are several shipping options to choose from. I recommend either the slow but cheap United States Postal Service USPS Media Mail rate, or the faster but still fairly inexpensive USPS Priority Mail rate. The others available are pricier.
