Hello. I hope everyone had a nice 4th of July week. Despite the doldrums, mine was superb. Watched fireworks, went to a festival, rocked to a couple of my favorite bands, and saw a movie (Incredibles 2).
This post is not about me playing funky music. Nope. It’s sort of the opposite. I’ve been in a funk lately. I haven’t been in the mood for posting. It’s not that I don’t have ideas, because there are several subjects and notes stewing, patiently waiting for their turn to be revealed.
Having family to spend holidays with isn’t always easy either. We might idealize the holiday gatherings and imagine the perfect scene, but sometimes relationship issues and dysfunction get in the way.
This is the case for Ava and Meg who are married to the Whitaker brothers in my novel, Whit’s End. The relationship struggles they have with their in-laws takes a toll on each of their marriages. Their difficult issues cause them to make decisions with dyer consequences. You can read further about their stories on the blurb at the above link (or click the book cover).
As a Thanksgiving and holiday special, I’m giving away two paperback copies of my novel, Whit’s End. Keep reading for instructions on how to enter the contest to win the book. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY READ THE BOOK, perhaps the paperback might make a nice Christmas gift for someone.
I hope everyone is enjoying family, friends, feast and some fine goodies. May those who don’t celebrate this American holiday be blessed as well.
I just finished making pumpkin cookies for Thanksgiving treats.
Does it still exist … American culture … American Patriotism?
So, what do you think of when you hear the words “sweet spot?”
