Mid-Week Field Notes–October 6, 2021

Some very quick things:

  1. A lovely review of my middle-grade novel in verse, 37 Days at Sea: Aboard the MS St. Louis, 1939, was spotlighted in the recent Association of Jewish Libraries newsletter, written by Anne Dublin: “Krasner’s use of imagery is stunning. Metaphors such as, ‘All of us lined up on the deck, / ship-locked seagulls / yearning for flight’ or similes such as, ‘I cling to Wolfie like salt on a pretzel’ are powerful and moving. The rhythmic flow draws the reader inside the narrative. You will want to read this book in one sitting, never letting go until the very last words.”
  2. Sign up now for a free, 90-minute workshop on Writing Your Family History, Sunday, November 14, at 2:00 pm ET. To register, comment below or send an email to barbarakrasner(at)att(dot)net.
  3. I’ll ask the same question as last week: What’s your best tip about book promotion and publicity? Please share in the Comments section.

Happy Writing!
