Thank goodness it’s Friday! To kick off the weekend, we’re once again showing our Lookout authors some love. Check out the recent happenings that caught our eye:
- The blog of the Antioch Review recently featured Edith Pearlman on how her short story “Decorum” (Fall 2013 issue) came into being.
- Edith sat down with novelist Carrie Brown, on behalf of The Howard County Poetry and Literary Society of Columbia, MD, to talk about influential writers and how her past as a computer programmer “connects to the brevity and economy of her short stories.” Take a few moments and watch the wonderful interview.
- Benjamin Percy’s novel Red Moon will be adapted into a FOX TV series. Academy Award-winning writer Akiva Goldsman and producer Ilene Staple are working to bring the story to life.
- An excerpt from Maggie Shipstead’s forthcoming novel, Astonish Me, is featured in the 2014 Spring/Summer edition of Buzz Books. The eBook collection includes forty exclusive pre-publication excerpts you can start reading right now, for free in the Kindle, Nook, iPad, and Kobo formats. We’re excited to read a preview of Maggie’s new novel, which comes out April 8!
