At the Desk: Don Gutteridge

For each book we readers eagerly open, there's a writer who's spent countless hours researching, organizing, writing and rewriting. The place where all this happens is unique to every writer, and we love nothing more than to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the site where it all happens! In Open Book’s At The Desk series, writers tell us about their creative processes and the workspaces that inspire them.

Call for Submissions: The Inspired Heart Anthologies

From the editor of the Inspired Heart anthologies:

The Inspired Heart, Edition 3

Our inner beauty is the first thing we are told matters as women, but the current media messages have somehow skewed our concepts of it. It has made those who do not fit the mold feel less attractive. This submission call is one for writers — male and female — who wish to write about the sensuality, and beauty of women. Each off us is a budding flower, and the third edition of The Inspired Heart will be about all of us in our own beauty and skin.
