Hats Off! to NCWN Executive Director Ed Southern whose essay appears in What Could Possibly Go Wrong? (Paycock Press, 2019). In this anthology, thirty-six writers spill their worst reading experiences. A "memorable testament to what occurs when an author is fortunate enough to finally exult in an even more terrifying experience: to meet the public you think you’re writing for," according to John King.


Hats Off! to Valerie Nieman whose fourth novel, To the Bones, officially arrives on June 1 from West Virginia University Press. It's a genre mash-up, an Appalachian mystery/horror tale focusing on the coal industry and its effects on the lives of West Virginians. Nieman is currently touring for this book and for Leopard Lady: A Life in Verse, with recent appearances at Greensboro Bound and the Bridgewater International Poetry Festival.


Hats Off! to Meagan Lucas: an excerpt of her forthcoming novel, Song Birds and Stray Dogs, appears in the Blue Mountain Review. Song Birds and Stray Dogs is in presale at the publisher, Main Street Rag.
