Shout-Out Saturday: Meg Rice Wilson

Good evening on this warm, wet Saturday from Maine!

Today’s shout-out goes to a fellow Maine author, Meg Rice Wilson. Last year, she published the e-book, Crappy New Year. The story is about Tess, a teenage girl who is dealing with the prospect of her mother remarrying. This is a beautiful book and I don’t say that lightly. It is a funny, poignant, heartbreaking look into the life of a young woman whose entire life is changing. I will admit that I cried about 1/6 of the way into the book. Wilson’s humorous prose is refreshing and breathes new life into an often misunderstood topic.

This story was at one point #12 on Amazon’s humor category in E-books. Oh, and did I mention that it’s downloadable for free today? Take advantage of this sweet offer while you can!

Her second upcoming book, Mourning Dove, is a contender for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel award. She’s in the semi-finals now. Knowing how accomplished her writing is from having read Crappy New Year, I’m certain she’s going to be a tough opponent to beat for this award. My fingers are crossed for you, Meg!

You can find her novel Crappy New Year here and visit her website here.

  1. Thank you, Katherine. I just found this post now, and I am so flattered and humbled that you wrote a blog about me. Thank you for the shout-out and for helping BOTH of us launch our writing careers! Best of luck to you as well, and I look forward to reading more about your projects too.


    • I devoured your book in the span of a few hours, Meg. I absolutely loved it. And I love being able to share that with others on my blog.
