The Best Laid Schemes of Mice and Men…

… often go awry.  Oh Steinbeck, how right you are!

Yep, I’m a bit behind on the book (which is why I haven’t posted much this past week). Serves me right for starting a blog and my vacation in the woods with four kids, all on the same day.

Nonetheless, I should be back on schedule soon and posting regularly again.  In the meantime, for my fellow writers (in Canada), here’s the latest news regarding CBC’s “Canada Writes – Literary Triathlon” competition.  It starts July 30.  Worth checking out!

Good luck!


About the author 

Valerie Francis

Valerie Francis is a bestselling author, literary editor, and podcaster with a passion for stories by, for and about women.

Each month, Valerie recommends books from literature’s best female authors. Selections come from every genre because women write, and read, in every genre. The Women’s Fiction category offers up some terrific novels, but these days there’s a strong female presence in thriller, horror, crime, and other genres traditionally dominated by male writers. No matter what the publishing companies may think, in the 21st Century, Women’s Fiction is whatever we want it to be.

stories for women, by women, and about women
