The 21st Century’s Literary Legacy


Sometimes when I sit alone too long in my room I start to wonder things that might be a little too existential for some people, but I still wonder.

Ralph Waldo Emerson Essays Book Cover Literary LegacyFor instance, this morning I was reading about The Essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson and I wondered in a hundred years will there be a book that’s called The Blog Posts of Stacy Verdick Case?  I mean isn’t that what I’m doing here? Creating short essays for you to mull over. While it would be so cool that people might be thinking of me posthumously is this a good representation of me or my writing. Um, probably not.

What are the literary foibles of our generation that will make it into the next century? Blog posts? Facebook status updates? Tweets? Google plus updates?

There are books of Tweets now like The Twits: Real Celebrities. Real Tweets. Real Funny. (really?).  Will our culture be judged by 120 character observations?  Will be judged by Kim Kardashians Selfie book? twits book cover Literary LegacyAnd if we are, will it be noted as the beginning of the decline of our civilization? Like we judge the fall of Rome at the point when they valued beauty before all things?

Maybe I shouldn’t be left alone for extended periods of time.  I’m not sure it’s healthy for me to ponder these things.  Now at least I’m not alone.  I bet you’re thinking about it too now.

No, I’m Not Dead – Just Busy

Hi All –

I know I’ve been gone from the blog sphere since January. I’ve been busy working on book 4, living life, dealing with struggles, and embarking on new frontiers. Even I chuckle at how overly dramatic I am.

Book 4 in the Catherine O’Brien series is coming along. I was blocked and now I’m not. That’s all I have to say on the frontier.  The really great news is An Intimate Murder is now available on audiobook!  If you’re an audiobook fan and you’ve been waiting for this one click the image below and get your copy today!

As for the new frontiers, I’ve been asked to do a show for Authors on the Air Global Radio Network, LLC. and I accepted the challenge with much fear and trembling! You know, the usual. But I did it anyway.  Last month was the first episode of It’s A Mystery to Me with Stacy Verdick Case. I spoke with a fantastic author Shannon Baker. You can download the podcast or listen online by clicking here.

The show is going to be great.  I have so many great authors lined up I am thrilled to get to speak with them.  I promise not to be too much of a fan girl and geek out too on writing stuff for all you mystery readers who don’t want to have to learn how an engine runs just to drive a car (it’s a metaphor-too writerly? I’ll stop.). Like the It’s a Mystery to Me Facebook page to keep up to date on the latest and greatest.

So there you are! The rest of the challenges and living life, that’s just the usual stuff that everyone goes through, but onward and upward. As long as I woke up breathing this morning, it’s going to be alright.

Many Blessing to You All!
