What inspired me to write In A Small Town?

Lose weight. Whiten your teeth. Work those abs. Cover your gray. And for goodness sake, put on a little lipstick! When you’re dating, the pressure to measure up to the beauty standard prescribed by magazines, advertisements and celebrity info-tainment programs can feel pretty relentless. Sure, we...

Stacey Longo Stacey Longo's blog:
I’ve often lamented about living in Connecticut, mostly because it’s cold, the people who live here are rude and standoffish, and, let me say it again, it is cold. So why do I stay? Largely because my family and most of my husband’s family are here. But Connecticut isn’t all freak ice storms, sho... Read more of this blog post »

I can’t believe it’s been a whole month since my last post. Anyway, since I’m new to all of this, I overestimated how much work I’d be able to get done while my mother in law was visiting and the tot was off school. The answer: Not much.

What novel did you put off reading for a long time? You wanted to read it, and maybe you started it once, twice, or more, but for whatever reason just couldn't get into it, maybe the length intimidated you, or the subject matter, and then finally you read it and was floored by how good it was and...
