Dearest Readers

Okra PicksAlthough you might not know it was fall from the weather -- it is currently 85F in her ladyship, the editor's neighborhood and she has been forced to run her air conditioner, something which always makes her feel vaguely guilty, one simply does not run air conditioners in October -- in point of fact it is fall. The Fall Equinox has passed, the end of Daylight Saving Time is on the horizon, and the 2019 Fall Okra Picks have been announced:

A fresh harvest of great Southern books, Southern voices, and Southern stories hand picked by Southern independent booksellers, the Fall Okra Picks are a collection of bookseller favorites from the upcoming season. Southern books worthy of being shoved into the hands of friends and family with all the confidence that can be inspired by the phrase "You've got to read this!"

10 Blind Dates

My parents are driving to Breaux Bridge, a small town in south Louisiana a little less than four hours away, to be with my sister and her husband. Margot is six weeks away from having her first baby, and she’s developed superimposed preeclampsia, whatever that means. All I know is that it’s made her feet swell to ridiculous sizes. And I know this because Margot is so bored out of her mind while she’s been stuck in her bed that she’s sent me pics of them from every conceivable angle.

“It’s not like I’m going to be by myself,” I continue. “I’ll have Nonna and Papa and the other twenty-five members of our family to keep me company.”

Dad rolls his eyes and mutters, “Don’t know why they all have to hang out in one house all the time.”

Mom pokes him in the ribs. The size of our extended family is no joke. Mom is one of eight, and pretty much all of her siblings have several kids of their own. My grandparents’ house is always full of people, but around the holidays it turns into Grand Central Station. Beds and spots at the table are awarded based on age, so when my cousins and I were younger we always spent Christmas Eve stuffed into one big pallet on the floor of the den like sardines and every meal was a balancing act between your plate, your red Solo cup and your lap.

“Are you sure you don’t want to stay with Lisa? It’ll be quieter at her house,” Mom asks.

“I’m sure. I’ll be fine at Nonna and Papa’s.”

Kimberly Collins: Fact and Fiction in Storytelling
 
Excerpted noteworthy poetry and prose from her ladyship's bedside reading stack.
 

Kimberly CollinsHistorical fiction. Besides an oxymoron, what is it exactly? It’s historical, yet it’s fiction. It’s real, and yet make-believe. One thing is for certain, it’s a delicate dance of words waltzing with real lives and events, while doing the tango with a cast of fictional characters.

Of course when writing historical fiction, it’s rare to know what the “real” people were thinking and feeling. But my characters know everything. And it’s through their eyes I want the reader to experience both the history and the story.

When writing historical fiction, sticking to the facts of the real events is important. But so often those data points can be a boring recitation of things that happened to people we don’t know in a time we have no memory of. By pouring a shot of fiction into the historical account, history comes alive and allows the reader to dive heart first into a piece of the past that otherwise may have never sparked their curiosity.

I place my characters in the situation and turn them loose to explore the tragedy, the love, the place, the moment. I can only bring my characters to the party—what they do at the party and after, is up to them. I’m just telling the story.

I place my characters in the situation and turn them loose to explore the tragedy, the love, the place, the moment. I can only bring my characters to the party—what they do at the party and after, is up to them. I’m just telling the story.

Keeping my characters from altering history requires balance and precision. A deftness of words and interactions blends the facts as we know them with the unknown world of what might have been. What could have been.

Blood CreekFor example, in my latest novel, Blood Creek, Mother Jones played an important role in the real events of the southern West Virginia mine wars. This woman was a force of nature. However, as much as I love the fact that she was a pivotal component of the mine wars, I didn’t want to tell her story. So, I introduced my character Jolene to Mother Jones and let Jolene show us the involvement of this real-life powerhouse in the historical events. All the facts concerning Mother Jones’ involvement in the Paint Creek and Cabin Creek strike are still there as historians recorded them, but we see it all unfold through a fictional character’s experience and how she interacted and related to Mother Jones—much as you or I would have, had we been there. But it is Jolene’s story.

The fiction should never change history, only enhance what we already know. It should slip in a perspective that may not have been considered.

In the end, story is what ties our lives together—past and present. Fact and fiction.


Kimberly Collins is the author of two novels, most recently Blood Creek, which is the first in the Mingo series. Collins grew up in Matewan, West Virginia, the home of the Hatfield & McCoy feud and the legendary Matewan Massacre. She loves the mountains, the river, the people, and the history. Collins is busy working on several projects including the Mingo series, short stories, photography, and dabbling in other creative endeavors. In 2017, she co-wrote her first screenplay for a short film, which premiered at the Knoxville Film Festival. For more information about Collins and her work, visit https://www.bluemingopress.com

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers

We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast by Jonathan Safran FoerA philosophical meditation on climate change, We Are the Weather is Jonathan Safran Foer's impassioned plea to readers to heed the signs of climate change and recommends a plant-based diet (until dinner) as the single action most individuals can take to make a personal impact. Using key moments from history - like the blackouts of WWII--combined with his own personal struggles and conscience, Foer's latest work will leave you unsettled, emotionally charged, and motivated to make whatever changes you can to help preserve what's left of the planet we call home.

We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast by Jonathan Safran Foer ($25.00*, Farrar, Straus and Giroux), recommended by Bookmarks, Winston-Salem, NC.


Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger, Melanie R. AndersonGet your TBR (To Be Read) list out, it’s about to double! Monster, She Wrote is a guide to the amazing female pioneers of horror, speculative fiction, and to the women propelling these genres today. Organizing the authors you love into time period and theme, Monster, She Wrote builds a comprehensive history on how women have impacted the genre.

For each author profiled authors Kroger and Anderson give another with comparable works and styles. Love gothic novelist Margret Cavendish? Try some selected works from Regina Maria Roche or Ann Radcliffe. With so many more wonderful authors to explore, Murder, She Wrote is sure to be a staple reference for seasoned horror fans and newcomers alike!

Monster, She Wrote: The Women Who Pioneered Horror and Speculative Fiction by Lisa Kröger, Melanie R. Anderson ($19.99*, Quirk Books), recommended by Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, VA.


City of Beasts by Corrie WangIt can get all too easy to joke about the patriarchy and its toxic effects because the jokes help cover up the pain that goes along with a deliberate, toxic system. Somehow, the brilliant Corrie Wang has crafted a novel that actually challenges that notion while delivering a page-turning adventure filled with heart, humor, and radical empathy.

City of Beasts brings fresh life to the post-apocalyptic YA landscape with characters who just won’t quit and that you’ll have a hard time letting go of. Glori Rhodes is a force of nature, and the cast of characters that flank her are captivating and pulsating.

City of Beasts by Corrie Wang ($17.99*, Freeform), recommended by Itinerant Literate Books, North Charleston, SC.

Where the Light Falls" I think part of it is that her stories are very quiet and very elegant, and she's possibly not fashionable at the moment - her style of writing. But I find her incredibly fascinating. She creates these lines that are full of a humming electricity. And her structures are so deep and so thoughtful that you don't really understand what you're reading until maybe a couple of days later when you realize exactly the craft that went into creating her short stories.”

The Okra Picks: The Summer Season

 

Southern Independent booksellers have chosen the 2019 Summer Okra Picks – a collection of the best forthcoming Southern books of the season. Add a bit of tasty reading to your literary diet. Serve yourself a helping of Okra Picks.

 

"Sophie's parents are heading down to spend Christmas with her older sister who is pregnant and on bedrest. But Sophie has convinced them to let her stay with her grandparents and the rest of their ginormous family only a few minutes away. She's sure that with all the people there, she can sneak away to spend some time with her boyfriend, Griffen. But on the first night, she overhears him tell a friend that he's bummed that she'll be around because he was thinking of breaking up with her. Sophie immediately heads out to her grandparents house and soon the whole family knows. So her Nonna decides that ten blind dates, each chosen by a different family member is just the thing to make her forget Griffin. And if the family has fun betting on the outcome of each date, that's just bonus.10 Blind Dates was a super quick read for me. It had me smiling and frankly, envious of Sophie's large and close family. This is a perfect Christmas read, or any time, really." —Jennifer Jones, The Bookmiser, Roswell, GA


10 Blind Dates by Ashley Elston

Sophie wants one thing for Christmas: a little freedom from her overprotective parents. So when they decide to spend Christmas in South Louisiana with her very pregnant older sister, Sophie is looking forward to some much needed private (read: make-out) time with her long-term boyfriend, Griffin. Except it turns out that Griffin wants a little freedom from their relationship.

Heartbroken, Sophie flees to her grandparents' house, where the rest of her boisterous extended family is gathered for the holiday. That's when her nonna devises a (not so) brilliant plan: Over the next ten days, Sophie will be set up on ten different blind dates by different family members. Like her sweet cousin Sara, who sets her up with a hot guy at an exclusive underground party. Or her crazy aunt Patrice, who signs Sophie up for a lead role in a living nativity. With a boy who barely reaches her shoulder. And a screaming baby.

When Griffin turns up unexpectedly and begs for a second chance, Sophie feels more confused than ever. Because maybe, just maybe, she's started to have feelings for someone else . . . Someone who is definitely not available.

This is going to be the worst Christmas break ever…or is it?
