Big News at Drunk Writer Talk

We've lured another author over to the dark side! Mwha, ha ha!

Actually, our great and wonderful news is that the lovely and talented Eileen Rendahl, aka Eileen Carr is joining Drunk Writer Talk as a weekly correspondent. (Correspondent? Are we all correspondents? Seemed to fit.)

We couldn't be more excited. As a teaser, here's the trailer for Eileen Carr's February 2009 release, HOLD BACK THE DARK! Creeeeepy. Yay!

Eileen is definitely simpatico with us here. She loves to talk about books, movies, TV and storytelling, especially over a glass of red wine. While her commute from Northern California to Toronto for our weekly pub meetings might be tough for her, we won't let her drive home drunk. ;-)

Starting next week, we're hoping to get back to roughly this schedule:

Monday: Molly O'Keefe
Tuesday: Eileen Rendahl or Carr (depending on which of her personalities comes out that day)
Wednesday: Maureen McGowan
Thursday: Stay tuned for another announcement, soon!
Friday: The ever-mysterious Sinead M.

There's a schedule???

Sure, some weeks we're bad bloggers. Especially during the summer when vacations and the sun and kids home from school interfere. But we're hoping the new blood will help inject some new ideas and life into DWT!

Welcome, Eileen!!!

I am not so secretly in love with Eileen. Don't worry. She knows. And she not so secretly loves me too, if only for my ability to thread needles.

Megan Frampton said...

Woot! How cool, Eileen is a lovely, fun person. Glad to see her here.

Eileen said...

Thank you so much! I'm excited to join the blog. I've loved reading it and commenting for quite a while now.

It's true my love for Kristen is no secret. Her ability to thread needles with thread that is still attached to my dress is only one of the many reasons I worship her. :-)

Megan, it's fun to see you here, too!

Maureen McGowan said...

Kristen, I think we're all secretly in love with Eileen. (and you.)

MJFredrick said...

OMG, I LOVE Eileen! LOVE. I stalk her regularly at conferences ;) Looking forward to reading her posts!

Eileen said...

It's just a giant love fest! I adore you all, too! Wine does tend to do that to a girl, though, now doesn't it?

Alli said...

Welcome, Eileen! The cover to your book is fabulous, the premise sound fantastic and the trailer is fantabulous! Looking forward to more from the DWT ladies on a regular basis. Yay!

Word verification: fibibhob (love it!)

Kristen Painter said...

Maureen, I'd thread a needle for you any day.

Molly O'Keefe said...

I can not believe Eileen is now blogging with us - I mean the world is small and great, isn't it? I can not wait to hear/read her posts and glean some of her writing genius.

I think she'll make us all better.

Eileen said...

You give me WAY too much credit, Molly. I like it, but it's still too much credit.
