Not that I didn’t already know that Birds readers are a hardworking bunch, but at least three have added new books to their list of publications and accomplishments. Now that’s worth celebrating!

What does a hip young novelist do when he opts out of the rat race to stay home and raise a new baby? He blogs. And, then he blogs some more. Bill Campbell put two year’s worth of his very literate, snappy and irreverent comments into Pop Culture, a collection of essays available as an ebook or paperback. Follow his current escapades and listen to his weekly musical podcasts at http://billanthrope.blogspot.com/.

Thanks for these! Shameless name-dropper that I am, I can't wait to sample the wares on offer here, pass them along, and brag about my acquaintance with the authors.

Nance---Glad you're going to follow up on this. I've read Bill's and Jane's books and certainly recommend them. I look forward to reading Jacqui's book, next. These three books could not be more different in style and subject matter, but all are by people whose comments you may have read along the way on this blog. What a great way to get to know people!
I hope to hear from other readers who have published recently or expect to in the near future. Same goes for musicians, artists and photographers. I'd be happy to highlight their work and let people know how to access it.
