Cover Reveal: Reading Glasses

Another fantastic job by my fellow South Jersey Writers Group member and dear friend, Shelley Sjazner, who did the cover for TALL TALES AND SHORT STORIES FROM SOUTH JERSEY.

My story, "The Beach House," featured in READING GLASSES, is about a woman grieving the drowning death of her best friend at the same time that the U.S. waits on the brink of possible nuclear war with North Korea. The threat seems distant compared to her intimate pain, but the two events are more closely connected than she ever imagined, especially when her friend's ghost visits the beach house.

The book launch is NEXT WEEK!!! So stay tuned.

Happy National Milk Shake Day!

Not that I have anything against dairy products, but this is just getting silly. Today is National Chocolate Milkshake Day. It is also National Video Game Day and National Stand Up to Cancer Day. September is also Life Insurance Awareness Month, Ask a Man on a Date Month, National Organic Harvest Month and National Piano Month. This is National Line Dance Week.

Sooo.... ask a life insurance salesman on a date to play video games and line dance to piano music while holding a milkshake during the organic harvest festival in order to raise money for cancer. GOT IT?????

I love this artwork, especially the fact that my roller coaster over the lake was incorporated into it. Anyone who's been to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, will know where that idea came from.  The book is due out on October 15th. Can you hear me squee?
