Hats Off! to Judy Dearlove whose novel Play On! is now available as an e-book. Set in a retirement community, Play On! features "an eclectic band of bridge buddies...and a few eccentric young people (on) an adventure that becomes part cat-and-mouse caper and part soul-searching quest."


Hats Off! to Glenda Council Beall and Estelle Darrow Rice whose book Paws, Claws, Hooves, Feathers and Fins, a collection of stories and poems about family pets, was favorably reviewed in the Clay County Progress. "These authors are Southern writers," says reviewer Marcia Hawley Barnes, "and readers can expect depth punctuating every line and lesson in human make-up and animal behavior."


Hats Off! to Dani McClain whose book We Live for the We: The Political Power of Black Motherhood (Bold Type Books) is nominated for a 2020 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award in the category of "Nonfiction." The foundation recognizes literary excellence by Black writers from the United States and around the world.
