Wilma had not been with us long before we knew she’d need help adjusting. She’s lovely in the house; obedient, eager to learn, knows her sit and stay, never poos or pees indoors and only barfs if she gets too excited. (We try to keep things calm.) One of my friends even called her a […]

Housekeeping

Have you noticed? My blog is now my website—my Online HQ. I’ve been working on it to the detriment of my other responsibilities. Except Wilma. Wilma keeps me to a standard. You can now type PetreaBurchard.com, CamelotAndVine.com, BozBooks.net or LivingVicuriously.net into the url field. They’ll all bring you here. Then there are the nifty tabs. […]

The Pledge of Independents

The Pledge of Independents

photo by John Sandel Lately there’s been a good deal of backlash against Amazon.com. The company’s been called a “bully” for holding a hard line against giant publishing companies to keep ebook prices low. Probably for other things, too, I don’t know. Let’s face it. Amazon is BIG.

Bonnie Schroeder and I became friends when we were in the same writers group. This wasn’t the kind of group that read and critiqued each others’ work. We met to share our progress and our process. Here’s Bonnie, to share what happens next: SPEAKING OUT…IN PUBLIC When my novel, Mending Dreams, was published, I realized […]

Wilma Acts As If

Wilma Acts As If

Act As If: Stumbling Though Hollywood With Headshot in Hand is my book of essays about the life of a journeyman actor in Hollywood, a life I lived for twenty years. It’s not easy work, but it’s hilarious if you bring your attitude. The book comes out in August. In celebration, Wilma shows us how […]

Harvest

Harvest

There will be several more tomatoes and a few more onions. Maybe garlic, maybe not. Maybe lettuce, maybe not. This is the extent of the potato harvest, and let me tell you, it was a joy to dig this stuff out of the dirt. I’ve found out this summer that deep down in my soil […]

For the last three years, World Book Night has given millions of free books to readers all over the world. Volunteers hand out donated books […]

Well, hello there. I haven’t seen you in a while. I have excuses reasons. I’m working on the final production for Act As If: Stumbling through Hollywood with Headshot in Hand, my new book of essays about my experiences in Hollywood. I’m writing another novel. I’m making website changes. John and I are training Wilma, […]

500 Empty Bowls

500 Empty Bowls

  bowl by Kenneth Chung The best charity event I’ve ever been to was Saturday’s 500 Empty Bowls, where one-of-a-kind, handmade ceramic bowls were going for $10 bucks each, with the money donated to feeding people in need. The metaphor serves the reality, which is nice, but that’s not why I enjoyed it so much. […]
