Second Edition of the Second Edition

About every four to six posts, WordPress does not deposit my new post in their Reader for followers to see.  From what I could tell, my September 12th post did not go into the Reader, at least not on that day. Since I posted an important accomplishment, and few people visited, I’m re-posting. I apologize to those of you who came over to read this already. Thank you in advance for your support.

P.S. Would love some reviews on Amazon or Goodreads or both.

I finally did it!


Let me explain. Some of you know that my memoir was published by an Indie publisher, and the contract ran out a couple of years ago.

Well, I’ve been meaning to get it up for sale again ever since, but my life has been pretty much a string of crazy. Beginning with my husband’s accident and then our subsequent cross-country move. We’ve lived in four homes in 15 months, our Florida home, temporarily at Mom’s house in Illinois until we found a place, found a townhouse rental, and finally bought our own home. During that time, both my husband’s parents passed away. Not to mention, the house we bought needed remodeling.

So, we still need to hang pictures and do a bit more unpacking, but I left those few things to finally get something else done!homeavecover3

I published the second edition of my memoir anthology! It’s now up and running.

The title and cover photo have been changed from the first edition. You’ve probably seen it on my sidebar, but you can click the photo on the right to go check it out (if you haven’t read the first edition). Maybe you’d like to recommend it to someone else.

Inside, there are four humorous and inspirational stories about growing up an Italian-American girl in the 1970’s in suburban Chicago. You can read more about it on my memoir page or look inside at the amazon link.

To those of you who have read it, I’d greatly appreciate if you could put up another review for me. After the contract ran out, the page was taken down along with the reviews.

Stay tuned, because if no more life issues interrupt my publishing work, I’ll have news on my novel soon.

Thank you for your support.

    1. Hi Lorna. Thank you so much for the offer. I would really appreciate one of your zany interviews. 🙂 But, now I’m going to get pushy. Eh, don’t you hate pushy sales? Heh. I just put up my latest blog post about my novel on the Kindle Scout campaign. Check it out and give it a vote if you like it.

      Maybe it can be mentioned in an interview, too. Oh, and if my book wins publication, anyone who votes for me gets a free e-reader copy.

      I’m honored that you would consider putting me on your blog.

    1. Thank you, Angela. I want to hear what you think of the football story after you read it, since we’re both football fans. I think you’ll get a kick out what happened when I met my hero.


    1. Hi Anneli. I feel like I shouldn’t complain to WordPress, since they offer me this free site. I have gone to their forum several times to ask if they can check on this for me and see if it can be fixed. I received no response each time. If I had a paid site, I’d be more assertive about it.
