SO SWEET AGAINST YOUR TEETH: Poems from Childhood’s Fall is being released today by Audible.com for your listening pleasure. I feel so honored to have Michelle Volz of Motivex, Inc., produce my chapbook!
So Sweet Against Your Teeth by June Gillam is a heart-ride. Get ready! Because from the seemingly simple settings of childhood come powerful tugs–and yes-zingers. They let us know who the writer is at depth and how she got that way, often by means of something like a stone shot from a hidden sling. And we find we know something about a deep foundation of her adulthood and at the same time share an hitherto unexpressed secret of our own adulthood from childhood–not the same circumstance, but the identifiable deep and lasting mark laid down within us. Don’t miss the experience of this exceptional book of poems. Find a private place … and time to let it do its good work. Bravo to June Gillam for this deeply thoughtful gift to us. –review by Zoe Keithley, Sacramento, California
This is a wonderful collection that takes the reader through the author’s sometimes painful childhood. The poems can be understood but still maintain the beautiful mysteriousness that is inherent in poetry that grapples with human emotion. I’ve read through a number of them several times and each read reveals a new insight. Really just a tremendous little book. –review by Carl T. Mealie, Tracy, CA United States
Also appreciate the review by Reene Abbott in Auburn Journal April 2016 and run in Goodreads.
Woman Song Book 2 is coming along now! Working Title: A STAY-AT-HOME WHAT???
So happy to get this Kirkus review of House of Eire, just in time for readers to “fly” to Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day reading!
Bits I liked best: “…the momentum and suspense build steadily. ‘Ghostwriter’ takes on a dangerous new meaning when a woman honeymoons in Ireland and uncovers family closets full of […]
I’m excited to be going for three days of Ice House Entrepreneurship Programs Facilitator Training this week. So what’s that, you ask?
Okay, for starters: entrepreneurship, noun: the activity of setting up a business or businesses, taking on financial risks in the hope of profit: the new business opportunities have encouraged entrepreneurship on a grand […]
Loved the KINGS RIVER LIFE review of House of Cuts and House of Dads on Audible! And glad to see Kathleen Costa give credit for the talented Ginny Harman‘s voice and production talents. It is not easy to make an audiobook as my friends Susan Rushton and Pauline Nevins know! […]
Please leave a comment here if you are a writer in California’s Central Valley. I would love to hear about what you are writing at the moment or have just released. Related to my House of Eire, just out this summer, it was a surprise to find the interview I did a few months ago […]
Book Reviews and Wallpaper proclaims “The past and present come together in … House of Eire. In some part of us there is a yearning to discover where we come from and who we are. Hilary Broome is no exception [and although she] seems like the average human that lives in California, this is […]
Readers’ Muse says “the third Hillary Broome novel … like the books before it, was filled with great writing, tight plots and splendid story weaving… The language and descriptions are so realistic they made me visit Ireland in my mind and it was, in equal parts, fun and emotional to know about the […]
Bless Their Hearts Mom asked about the “Donald” and “Hillary” in House of Eire! Glad to note just how those names show up in suspense series Book 3, released this summer, so loaded with dramatic presidential candidate conflicts!
Deal Sharing Aunt can’t wait for book 4, House of Hoops, about a quarter […]
I loved the review from Margaret Tidwell who describes herself this way “I’m a 31-year-old blogger. I write about my life and my struggles with Multiple Sclerosis. I also am a huge book worm and because of that I review tons of books so other people can get ideas of books they should check out.”
At Working Mommy Journal, it was heart-warming to see how well Hillary’s travels and travails were understood, as did “Working Mommy,” who also felt the anguish of the Irish people in the pages of the book. I just had to share some of her review and hope you go to the link above for […]
