Once Again in The Limelight (in more ways than one!)

Feeling a bit like a hermit, but that's about to change. I've spent most of the past six months auditioning, working as an actor, and writing, re-writing and editing, the following: my original book, "Words From Water: Poems"; a second collection, "The Book of O: The Orgasm Poems"; a short-story; a children's book; two plays; and...the beginnings of something(it's still in "pieces") which may become a screenplay.
Next up: joining (and in some cases, re-newing membership)several writers' groups.
I'm also planning to do lots of meet-ups with everyone I've neglected, very soon.
My Mom--Demetra. My Dad--John R. All my "in-town" friends. Several friends and cousins who live in California, who'll be visiting later this summer. The "One More Night, Limelight Reunion".(for those who don't know, "The Limelight" was Atlanta's answer to NYC's "Studio 54" in the 1980's....).If you're on Facebook, be sure to check out their Facebook Page, under "Limelight Reunion".It's on Friday, July 30th, from 6:00 P.M.- 2:00 A.M.
Here's to work, networking, re-connecting, family, friends, and....fun!

Hmmm, I think I've been "spammed". :(

Looking forward to re-connecting with all of you bloggers, though. :)

I'm been enjoying your blog. Appreciated the reference in a recent post about prayers from many faith sources. Wrote about something similar in my blog under The Language of Spirit. Good luck!

Galen Pearl--Why, Thank you!
You rock!
Headed to your blog, now!

Mother Mercy, Lisa, you make bees seem lazy. Bravo. I need to try one of your books soon. Which one would you suggest is the best to start with?

Lisa Allender said...

David Herrle--Hi there!It's up to me to submit or self-publish the books(the first("Words From Water: Poems") had a great "release" at Callanwolde Arts Center, two years ago, but I never lulu'ed it/put a cover on it(I'm thinking of using pics from childhood)so it's still a self-bound manuscript.
"The Book Of O: The Orgasm Poems" needs a publisher/press that is comfortable with somewhat sexy language, graphic literary descriptions of sex, etc..
If you'd like, I can send you some
samples from "Words From Water: Poems" or
"The Book of O: The Orgasm Poems."
