On Tuesday, Angie Ledbetter, Gumbo Writer extraordinaire, asked her friends, colleagues, and blog followers for a little favor. Because it was the day after I’d turned in my book proposal – and, therefore, I was still suffering from an overwrought brain – I failed to notice her request in my inbox. But I noticed it today – only five days late. Oops.
I’m sorry, Miss Angie. Will you ever forgive me?
Apparently, she and fellow writer Kat Magendie have been working hard (or, as Angie so eloquently put it, working their “bahonkusses off”) to renovate and remodel their online literary journal, in preparation for their re-launch this week with the fall issue.
So, although I’m a bit late with this announcement, it can’t hurt to post it anyway. What’s that saying? Better late than never? Describes me to a tee.
Anyhoo, here’s the good news that Angie would like me to spread:
You are cordially invited to attend an “open house” beginning Wednesday, October 14, in honor of the newly renovated Rose & Thorn Journal:
Drop by, sign up for the newsletter, check out the new digs (and blog!), follow us on Twitter and Facebook, leave us your comments/thoughts, and wish us well!
Rose & Thorn is a quarterly literary journal featuring the voices of emerging and established authors, poets, and artists.
Now...go enjoy the open bar and appetizer spread!

P.S. Because I find it difficult posting anything to my blog without a photo, I thought I’d offer some delicious New Orleans-style appetizers of my own (Oysters Rockefeller and Oysters Bienville). Angie and Kat should appreciate the cuisine – after all, Kat formerly called Louisiana home and Angie still does!
