Because I know you all missed news about Girl Zines


Even though the brain tumor is obviously the most exciting news going, Girl Zines is still making its way around the internet.  The two latest things are an article on the website Blodic.Us and a review on the blog Constructive Pessimism.  The book has also been tagged on some Tumblr sites, but I have to admit I'm not cool enough to understand the whole Tumblr phenomenon, even though my own brother is the king of Tumblr and has tried to explain it to me.  Alas.

Also, over the holidays (while I was in the hospital, sadly enough), I was featured in an article in the Post & Courier.  One of the most exciting things about this article is the excellent picture of me, featured here.

Alison -

All the articles were great - I especially enjoyed reading your words on the P&C site. You are right, that is a great picture of you. I've been reluctant to buy your book right off Amazon because I really want a signed copy ;-)

I'll just have to buy it anyway and make a point of bringing my ween bean to meet yours to get your Jenny Hancock.

Hugs.

I was going to send you an email because I was so delighted to see you in some many media places. You are such a great voice for the College. And then I checked your blog and read that you were having seizures. I just burst out crying. I have a nearly-two yo child, and also work at the College, and know how hard it is to include even dental appointments (for example, I do not) into a mom professor's schedule.
I am glad you have the ace support team around you that you do, and I'm very sorry that life is so much harder than younger selves would ever believe.
Also, I've mentioned this blog to others and expressed to them how nice it is for you guys to allow people into your lives. So honest and admirable, I think. Other people could not do it, I am sure. So thanks for letting strangers, as Aristotle put it, do the work necessary to a good life, that is-- "learn other's stories and share in their lives".
Best wishes.

Great pic and even better interview! Reading your words made me so proud and lucky to know you--one of my favorite people in Charleston...heck, in this world! Just found out everything that has been going on in your lives over winter break. I am at the same time stunned and yet not surprised by how you and biffle handle challenge with such courage and humor.

I think you should keep blogging new posts but just re-post this picture every time. It's awesome.

Chris, that is so funny! I love this picture, too.

Alison,
Sorry to hear about all you are dealing with. After my own experiences this past year, I can relate. If you want to talk, cry, etc., please let me know. Meanwhile, I have a good friend who is thriving a couple of years after her brain tumor experience, and I'm sure she'd be happy to talk with you if you'd like.
