Sweet Success for Patricia Walkow

In memorial to the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attack, Patricia Walkow is honored to announce the October 2020 release NEW MEXICO REMEMBERS 9/11. Patricia Walkow is the editor and curator of this collection of stories and poems. 

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

This anthology captures the 9/11/2001 experiences of New Mexico writers. Some witnessed the event.

The talented contributors to NEW MEXICO REMEMBERS 9/11 offer enlightening, sometimes heart-wrenching prose, thoughtful analysis, and evocative poetry. What did they see? Do?  How have they coped? What did they tell their children? How did they get home?  Who got angry? Who retreated into themselves?

Readers of these stories and poems will understand New Mexico may have been physically far from the devastation, but its heart was just next door. Copies of the anthology may be purchase through Artemesia Publishing, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and indie booksellers.

Sweet Success for Kale!

By: Darby Karchut

CWG KALE

Congratulations to these Pikes Peak Writers members on their various stories appearing in the Corrales Writing Group’s upcoming horror anthology entitled KALE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD: Chris Allen, Maureen Cooke, Sandi Hoover, Jim Tritten, and Patricia Walkow (all members of PPW), contributed to the book. The following individuals also made either written or artistic contributions: Jane Butel (recipe), Sandi Cathcart (recipe), Adrienne Evatt (recipe), Alex Knight (art), Paul Knight (art), Jasmine Tritten (prose and art and also a member of PPW), and Walter Walkow (prose).

ABOUT THE BOOK: Kale has invaded our culture as the go-to food for healthy living, appearing everywhere on restaurant menus, in grocery stores and in beauty products like soaps and scrubs. It’s in salads and sandwiches, on pizzas, in soups and stews, and even salted as chips. For many, it shouts, “Eat me. I’m good for you.” For others, the vitamin load and beneficial fiber cannot outweigh the bitterness and texture of this member of the cabbage family. For those people, kale has ignited a passionate response, often reflected in internet memes and T-shirt slogans. This collection of short stories shows kale in a new light. Some stories present the perspective of those who introduce kale to their spouses and the reaction of those who are so targeted. A couple of tales are horror stories about kale’s effect on a life; another one describes a speculative history of kale; one is a murder mystery where kale plays an unusual role; and one is a fantasy about kale’s rivalry with another popular, competing vegetable, cauliflower. This book also has delicious recipes which feature kale as the primary ingredient. A word of caution, though. One recipe was written by someone with a novel approach to cooking kale.

KALE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD releases September 2020. Pre-orders are now available at Amazon.
