My most sincere apologies to my readers for the absence of “Letters from a Future.” I took a brief hiatus to complete my copyediting certification from Writer’s Digest University. More information on that is to come, in the meantime, you can look forward to more “Letters from a Future” in the Tuesdays ahead!
PO Box 159 at the Brooksdale Post Office is a bit unusual. Every week, it receives letters from many different people from many different times in the future. Many times, the letters are well-wishes and advice from the loved ones of people of our time. Other times, there are dire warnings.
No one seems to know how or why these letters started coming to PO Box 159. They simply appear. The future these letters describe seems to be in constant flux; one day the year 2098 sounds like a dystopian hellscape, the next day a letter will appear describing a garden of Eden.
Emma Reilly, the owner of PO Box 159, shares the letters she receives through my Twitter account every Tuesday morning. Check out @meg_a_mars or #LettersFromaFuture and stay tuned for news about the upcoming ebook!
My overwhelming thanks to everyone who has supported The Writers Next Door of Wilmington by coming to our book launch last Monday, purchasing our book, visiting us at the Wilmington Farmer’s Market today, or supporting us in so many other ways big and small. I am so grateful for the wonderful community of creatives and literature-lovers in Wilmington and Massachusetts, and your ongoing support for our special little book.
If you’re reading this and are thinking “Oh no, have I missed my chance to read the best book of the summer?” — don’t worry! It’ll be at Wilmington’s Book Store Next Door, and can also be found on Amazon in eBook and softcover formats here. You can also buy a copy (and get some of the authors’ signatures!) at the Wilmington Farmer’s Market on September 23rd. As always, all proceeds will go to the Friends of the Wilmington Memorial Library.
Thank you all so very much again!
As one of the Wilmington, MA Writers Next Door, I am excited to announce the launch of our first book, The Writers Next Door. At 7 p.m. tonight at Wilmington Memorial Library, I will be available to discuss the book and my short story, “Interview #1.” You can also find the book on Amazon and support the Friends of the Wilmington Memorial Library.
