The WordSmitten "About the Books" radio broadcast (and podcast) has been
nominated for the 2009 Gracie Awards (George Burns and Gracie Allen)
sponsored by the AWRT.org.
Recent Gracie Award-winners include Oprah's Gayle King radio broadcast.
Recent guests include Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward P.
Jones, journalist and author Gay Talese (Mr. New York), National Book
Award honorees Fiona Maazel and Sana Krasikov, sportswriter Jeff
Pearlman, and author Natalie Goldberg.

Last year, I spent a lovely time in the Florida area with the folks at Wordsmitten, when they hosted a one-day writing conference.

When you check out the BlogTalkRadio site, you'll see the following colorful note:

During
last year's visit to the WordSmitten event, and the rowdy authors
assembled for that spectacular writing conference (Connie May Fowler,
Robert Tarte, Alison Steele, Kate Sullivan, and Jane Friedman conducted
sessions), Jane Friedman came through unscathed despite flat tires, an
abundance of wine, merriment, and sassy writers.



The WordSmitten team is delighted she survived the writing conference
and authors' parties. Even more interesting, we're glad she still talks
to our editorial staff.

Hope you'll listen in -- and call-in with a question.
