This is a clever way to announce the “birth” of a book:
It took a bird, a photographer, a writer, an “I’ve never attended a writing workshop in my life and everyone’s going to know it” gal from Texas, EBWW 2010 and an alignment of the stars to bring these two writers together.
Two years later at EBWW 2012, a whine was added, some wine was consumed and Mabel and MayBelle were born.
It took less than a year for their story to be written, more than a year to edit it, a thousand or more e-mails back and forth, a couple of editors, an artistic daughter-in-law, more wine — and the book was born.
Jody Worsham and Wanda M. Argersinger, the proud parents, are shouting from the top of pine trees, selling from the tailgates of their vehicles, giving away bookmarks — and still drinking wine.
Help them celebrate their birth of their first joint book, Kin We’re Not Related To As Told By Mabel and Maybelle.
