Every week, we are going to celebrate noteworthy achievements and upcoming events happening within the She Writes Press community in our new “Friday High Fives!” (formerly celebrated monthly via the monthly memo). 

From author interviews to launch parties, we are shining a light on a few of the fantastic things happening in our world.

If you have coverage you’d like to share (that hasn’t already been sent or shared), a new award to your name or an event planned, please let Leila know at leila@sparkpointstudio.com and we’ll get you included in an upcoming Friday High Five!

Venetian Blood by Christine Evelyn Volker received a stellar, five-star review from Manhattan Book Review.

Manhattan Book Review said “Volker’s Venetian Blood weaves alluring language, seductive setting, the charm of shadowed history, and cunning intrigue into a (modern) historical mystery so tantalizing you will be swept away from word one.” Read the full review here.

Oink: A Food for Thought Mystery by Judith Newton got a great review from Kirkus Reviews.

Kirkus Reviews called Oink “. . .intriguing and full of twists. . . it’s hard to find fault with the author’s theme of communal empowerment, her love of food, and her frequent instructional asides. A highly educated foodie’s dream, this tale delivers a unique take on both the campus and mystery genres.” Read the full review here.

Judith also published 2 stories about Oink: one on expanding the meaning of deep ecology on MysteryReadersInc.com and another on food’s role in fiction on BooksByWomen.org.
