The January 11, 2014, launch party at Washington, DC's renowned Politics & Prose bookstore for Defying Gravity, the sixth anthology in the Grace & Gravity series of fiction by Washington, DC-area women, published by Paycock Press and edited by Richard Peabody, was a blast! The bookstore was full to capacity with a standing-room crowd eager to meet contributing authors and enjoy the opportunity to network with lovers of literature.

Amazing Graces launches
with lively party in January

The Amazing Graces launch party, held on Sunday, January 8, at the renowned DC bookstore Politics & Prose, was a smash success! We sold 200 copies of our newest book and enjoyed insights about its development from an eight-author panel moderated by Bethanne Patrick. Panelists Rae Bryant, Celeste Crenshaw, Beth Frerking, Jennifer Howard, Esther Iverem, Priscilla Nemeth, Wanda Warner and Kathleen Wheaton each read from her piece in the new anthology (it worked like a collage) and then fielded questions from the audience and the moderator. "The event was truly a celebration, not a marathon," said editor Richard Peabody, owner of Paycock Press.

Alumni from the first four volumes in the series and writers who are penciled in for a sixth volume were invited to the event.
