Mailbox Monday: Oregon Authors

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia, who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring event (details here).

Crystal at I Totally Paused is hosting in November.  Crystal reviews books from a variety of genres including mysteries, YA, historical fiction, and classics, and also blogs about pop culture and life as she sees it.  Please visit her blog and say hello.

My mailbox was a celebration of local authors and publishers last week.  I got three books that all look really interesting:

A Simplified Map of the Real World by Steven Allred, published by Forest Avenue Press.  Interconnected short stories set in the fictional town of Renata, Oregon.

Brave on the Page: Oregon Writers on Craft and the Creative Life, edited by Laura Stanfill, published by Forest Avenue Press. Essays from 42 Oregon authors about living the writer's life. 

Paradox Lost: Uncovering Your True Identity in Christ by Jen Johnson and Catherine Skurja, published by Imago Dei Resources.  Jen is in my book club and worked on this project for a while. I look forward to reading it.
