E. Kristin Anderson will write your bio.
You know that part where a magazine asks you for a "short bio?" Let me do that for you. $15 gets you something around 50 words of exquisite biographical information.

Examples:

doodlerTM lives in the snowy woodlands of upstate New York. She has a pet Yeti. You're jealous.

neurotype spends her time in and outside of Chicago, where she can be found writing science fiction, entertaining hookers, and writing science fiction about hookers. Her work has been seen in magazines.

TheMaidenInBlack is a goddamn classy Italian cyclops with at least one dog. When not wrestling sewer rats, she writes sonnets on her balcony.

tiganusi has never ever rolled a cigarette using a page from a bible. His work has appeared in at least three magazines that you've heard of and his photographs have given at least one old man a stroke.

Hello! I hope you're enjoying LOVE IS THE DRUG as much as I am! What's not to love about a devastating plague and a government conspiracy plot?


Johnsonloveisthedrug by PinkyMcCoversong


Let's get into the mood with some spooky shots of DC:


The Grotto by theworldisavampire  Hope and Glory by futurowoman  soldier gazes back by futurowoman  Heavenly Light by aponom

 Capitol 5 by mikeypetrucciMetro by whitebengal13


And now for the discussion questions!


  • 1. How do you feel about the setting? Do you think it adds more tension to the story to have it set in the nation's capitol? How would it be different if this were set in a small town?
  • 2. It's not hard to imagine what it must feel like for Bird to be so under pressure from her parents to be a certain way, act a certain way, go to a certain college, have a certain future. How are you anticipating that Bird's feelings about her parents's wishes will change as mysteries unravel, and as she undergoes personal traumas of her own?


  • 3. Race plays a major role in LOVE IS THE DRUG, and in most of Alaya Dawn Johnson's work. I'm finding it striking how much LITD is paralleling current events, intentionally or not. How does this make you feel, while you're following Bird and the other characters in the book navigate their world?


  • 4. How about you ask some questions? I want to hear what you want to talk about this month, at mid-point. 

Audience participation?


For extra points, imagine that the v flu infected your town. What would you do? Write a short scene (500-1000 words) about this.

Remember, our prize this month is awesome:

PinkyMcCoversong's Profile Picture

E. Kristin Anderson
Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
My name is Emily, but if you're looking for my published work, you should Google E. Kristin Anderson. (Ask me and I'll tell you the why-I-need-a-pen-name story.) I write poetry (for everyone) and fiction (for young adults and children) and nonfiction (sometimes). I'm the co-editor of the nonfiction anthology DEAR TEEN ME (Zest Books, 2012) based on the website DearTeenMe.com, where authors write letters to their teen selves. I have two poetry chapbooks out: A JAB OF DEEP URGENCY (Finishing Line Press) and A GUIDE FOR THE PRACTICAL ABDUCTEE (Red Bird Chapbooks). I'm an online editor at Hunger Mountain and a contributing editor at Found Poetry Review . I blog at EKristinAnderson.com about books and writing and my bizarro life here in Austin, TX. If you're looking for editorial or mentoring servies, I'm a member of Yellow Bird Editors, a group of industry professionals offering these and other services for professionals as well as beginning writers and teens.

I grew up in Westbrook, Maine and went to Connecticut College in the beautiful New London, CT, and have a fancy-sounding degree in Classics. Once upon a time I lived in Brooklyn and worked at The New Yorker magazine and sometimes I have dreams that I have to go into the office and make the magazine and can't remember how. ATX, though? It's a great home. I like to take photographs with toy and vintage cameras. Don't listen to anyone who says watching television will rot your brain -- some of my best ideas have come from TV.

Scroll down for a list of upcoming events and information on my editorial and coaching services.

:rofl: omgosh, I will have truly arrived if I have an official bio composed by you!... Alas though, I think I have less than 350 points (upends her wallet). Ah me, looks like I'll need to keep my face pressed against the shiny display window, wistfully hopeful... :icongrumpplz:
