Amy Tan

There are some authors for whom no introduction is necessary. Amy Tan is one of those authors. Since her reputation proceeds her, I will proceed without adding further hoopla.

I will say that if you have a friend or relative who has read all of the Amy Tan books, or most of them anyway, then they will love reading about the connections between character and inspiration along with the story of the author's life in Amy's Memoir, The Opposite of Fate.

For those who have not yet experienced this master story teller, I suggest starting with the Joy Luck Club and continuing right on through her collection.

And for the little ones...

I have enjoyed putting together our little bookstore up in Squaw Valley over the past four years. We love our bookstore and it has been your support that makes it all possible, so Thank You!

I have received many requests for an online SVCW Bookstore. Some who miss us when they are away, and others who are just tired of lugging all those hardcovers around on airplanes. There are also those writers who are honest about being broke and needing to purchase books at Amazon's discounted prices. As fellow writers, we understand your pain!

For these reasons I thought it would be fun to try our hand at a SVCW Books and Authors blog. I will track down our authors and past participants and post their books, news, reviews and information and link our SVCW books to Amazon. Ten percent of every book purchased through our blog will help support the bookstore. I am looking forward to building an online archive of the outstanding collection of books represented by authors who frequent the Community of Writers.

Thanks for visiting our Community of Writers blog!
