Author Exposure Review

I just came across an amazing, generous and thorough review of my short story collection by Joan Hanna over at Author Exposure. What a gift! I *heart* readers. (Check out Joan's blog and read some of her lovely lyrical poetry there.)


"The women in these thirteen short stories will resonate with you long after you read this book. You will wonder about them as if they were your neighbors. You will even feel the urge to call them to make sure they are okay. Akers has imparted a fearless, fully-explored series of stories about how women try to break out of their emotional prisons in a way that will even touch readers who have nothing in common with these women."

The Buffalo Book Fair

Got my tent, got my posters, got my money box, got loads of books to sell, know what I'm reading, pretty sure what I'm wearing (subject, always, to last minute changes), got my maps printed out. I think I'm ready. Hope to see you at the Buffalo Book Fair this Saturday! (If you're at Taste of Buffalo, we're only a block away--come on over!)
