Hear us Roar

Mar 23, 2023

Our podcast guest this week is Grace Marcus (Visible Signs, Touchpoint Press, May 2022). Grace, a debut author at 75 years old, shares lessons she learned along the line, including not signing with the first agent who makes an offer to trusting your gut when it comes to major rewrites. We discuss her marketing initiatives which include talks at senior centers and short writing workshops in exchange for a book purchase at libraries as well as her writing process, which she describes as “creep, creep, creep, lurch.”

 Grace Marcus holds a Master in Theatre Arts from Montclair University. Her debut novel, Visible Signs, published by TouchPoint Press in May, 2022. An early version of the book was a semifinalist in the William Faulkner-William Wisdom Creative Writing Competition. 

She has been an actress, waitress, social worker, newspaper editor, and radio and cable TV show producer to name a few of the byways on her road to becoming a writer. Her work has been published in Philadelphia Stories, The Bucks County Writer MagazineAdanna Literary JournalTheWritersEye, Women on Writing, Me First Magazine, Carolina Woman, and Embark Literary Journal. A Brooklyn native, she has lived on both coasts, and now calls North Carolina home where she is working on a new novel.
