LDS Women's Book Review Contest

by Stephanie Black

Some days just weren’t meant to be blogging days. We just got back from vacation on Monday night, were gone all day yesterday risking our lives on San Francisco Bay, and are now facing, among other things, a disaster of a house and a fridge that we’ll never be able to clean. Because of the life flourishing in there, it has been declared a protected ecosystem and therefore we can’t legally mess with it. Maybe we should just move out.

Being thus pressed for time, I shall forthwith fill up my slot with someone else’s words. The LDS Women’s Book Review is a group of three reviewers who discuss fiction in a monthly podcast and run an online forum at My book, The Believer, was a featured title in May’s podcast discussion. It was a terrific discussion. You should go listen to it and then buy several copies of my book, read one, and give the rest away as gifts. Pretty please? The book comes highly recommended by my mother, and she’s a very honest woman.

The LDSWBR is running a contest to help introduce people to their forum. This is the announcement of the contest, as sent to me by Shanda, the moderator. And I swear, I didn’t slip any extra words in there (that’s for Rob’s benefit—I sensed he was going to accuse me of adding the word “wonderful”. I didn’t, and I also deny bribing Shanda. The witness who saw me slipping her that envelope was completely unreliable.)

Win an autographed copy of The Believer by Stephanie Black!

How exciting! I just went over and registered, but mostly because I loved their podcast. It really WAS a terrific discussion of a WONDERFUL (my word) book. I don't need to win because I already have two copies of The Believer (I heartily agree with Stephanie's mother -- and I'm a much more critical reader generally) but I will ask Marnie to put a link to the site up on my website. Thanks for telling us about it!

Thanks for the update, Stephanie. I hope that site gets huge. It'd be nice to have one central location like that where LDS fiction fans could go to. Then I would know where to send my bribe money. ;)
