Postcards to Paul

Postcards to Paul (2006) Post 368

Postcards to Paul is one of a group of texts I wrote using different pen names, most of which were used just once. For this one, I was called Talia Reed. I have no idea why. The story is told in postcards, as the title implies. Ari and his dad are driving cross country to visit Cousin Paul, and Ari sends postcards as he goes. At least, I think so. Since I can't find a copy, and I can't remember... I'll rewrite this if I ever do get my hands on the book.
Okay, stop press. I didn't find the book, but I found the 2005 manuscript. I wrote about JACK going to visit PENPAL Paul. It seems the editor changes Jack to Ari and a penpal to a cousin. Without the book, I can't be sure.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
