The "Whenever Newsletter" containing the wit and wisdom of LDS author Susan Law Corpany is put out several times a year, but not on any set schedule. You will find the stories behind the stories, excerpts from works in progress, humorous insights, ideas for how to avoid doing housework. In other words--whatever and whenever. (Just a touch of rebellion.) Subscription is free and free from the contraint of a publishing schedule, because after all, writers are under enough deadlines. Enjoy!

Subject: New Meridian Column
FYI, Meridian online LDS magazine has posted my latest article. You can read it here.
(No, it isn't about Donald, although technically he resided within my ward boundaries when I lived in Florida.)
I am also writing a parenting column, geared mostly toward single parents and stepparents, since I have been both. It is called "Parenting Outside the Box." You can find those columns at:
To those of you who requested the free books, they have all gone out, but two were returned to me with the labels missing. If you have not received your copy of Unfinished Business by now, please e-mail me and I will ship you another one. My apologies to anyone whose book did not arrive, but two out of about 330 is not too bad as returns go.
I am going to be in Utah from August 14 to August 28. I am toying with the idea of doing something I did a few years ago, which is to have an open event in a park where I read some excerpts from upcoming works, (perhaps even a few pages from my never-to-be-published Book-in-a-Month that I wrote last November), sign books, answer questions and eat Krispy Kreme donuts. (We don't have those here on our island. And they call this PARADISE???) I am trying to judge what the interest level would be before I organize something like that, and also where the interest is strongest. If I have 20 people in the Utah County area interested, I won't schedule it in Salt Lake and vice versa. And if your interest is mostly in the donuts, well . . . You don't have to fess up. (We writers endure enough rejection over the course of our lives.)
Please e-mail me and let me know if you would be interested in attending something like that. I would likely do it in the evening on Monday, August 21 or Wednesday, August 23, or both if there is sufficient interest. If I get enough response, I will send out a bulletin with the location and time, etc. Also, please let me know if the temperatures have been or are likely to be so stifling that everyone would get heat stroke, and I will consider finding an indoor location.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
