Ridiculously excited to receive this signed copy of Alchemists of Loom from @elise.kova !! It arrived in the mail just a few minutes ago and I had to take a photo of it immediately. Slightly embarrassed to admit this in front of Elise, but the world building in Loom is SO fantastic and original that I wrote down notes in my journal while reading it. And that cover, oh that beautiful cover… #thealchemistsofloom

We’ve been watching The Handmaid’s Tale. Made me want to go back and read it. Found my very marked-up copy along with a note I must have written at 19. “JD” refers to the incomparable Jim Daniels. . . #instagram #AuthorsOfInstagram #LitPark #Authors #Poets #JimDaniels #Mentors #CMUauthors #CMUcreativeWriting #BakerHall #CarnegieMellonBookstore #HarperCollinsUS #HarperPerennial #CarnegieMellonAlum #TheFlickerOfOldDreams
