    " Kimberly Brock has an amazing voice and a huge heart; The River Witch welcomes the reader to a haunted landscape, authentically Southern, where the tragedies of the past and the most fragile, gorgeous kind of love-soaked hope are equally alive. This is one debut that you absolutely should not

Rona Sets the Bar!

Author Rona Simmons has done something that has set the bar impossibly high for me. She wrote a blog and told the world about the little stuff I try to do as I come to the page every day. And whether she knows it or not, she’s encouraged me with this piece.

Rona poked me with a stick and whispered to keep at it. And I hope what she’s written will be an encouragement to a TON of other, better, more prolific or struggling or beginning writers out there. Those who pray for their publishing contracts to come through or those who go without recognition. Those who blog and those who journal. Those who want to see their words in print and those who write in secret to heal a broken heart. For all of us, for the million things we do to help along a friend or a sister or a mama who is trying to find the way to tell her stories.

What Rona says loud and clear in this blog (not just in her post about me but all the women she writes about), is this:

What you’re doing, it matters.

****AND, I’d like to bring some attention to a post she ran a few weeks before this one, featuring the lovely and brilliant Soniah Kamal! Click here to read that piece – A Suitable Woman.****

Meeting Rona has been one of the gifts of my writing this year. I hope you’ll all rush out and pick up a couple of copies of her books. Drop by her website and see what she’s up to. She’s inspiring!

Starting the Year Off with WRITERS IN THE STORM!

Today I got to something fantastic! I’ve been invited to be a contributor for a wonderful writers’ site that I adore – Writers In the Storm.

This year I’ll be share some guest posts over there and I hope you’ll check them out and leave a comment when it strikes you.

I’m writing about nests and why we need them to be creative.

I wonder how many of you are nest builders, like me? What shape is your nest in today?

admin - Rosalie,
Thank you so much for your lovely response to the novel. I’m always so glad to hear from readers. And, YES, the endorsement from Sharyn McCrumb thrilled me. I’m very proud – as you should be, of such a beautiful and kind daughter. :)
Warmly,
Kimberly

Rosalie Masters - Just finished THE RIVER WITCH, a gift from my daughter, Monica.
Excellent story with a twist at ending I was definitely NOT expecting.
Endorsement from Sharyn McCrumb is a feather in your cap.
Kudos to you, Kimberly, for writing a page turner first novel!
