Greetings to all of you,
I hope you’re all doing well as we come to the end of summer, at least for those living in cooler places than Orlando. We’re still happy in our new home and city after a year since moving to Florida. In July, we adopted a sweet dog, Chloe, a rescue Pyrenees who’s about four years old. She’s certainly an added pleasure to life when she’s not trying to run away again, but that’s another novel.
I’d like to tell you about a two-day, 99-cent price deal on Back of the Yard for Kindle, which will run today and tomorrow, Sept. 15 and 16. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the story of Betty O’Leary and her family as they struggle to overcome the Great Depression, family tragedy, mental illness, and their realization that love, hope, and family can heal most wounds. I just received word that the book is a finalist in the 2022 Readers’ Favorite Book Award Contest, which is its fourth book award. Yay!
Hope you enjoy the book, and/or any other reading you’re doing right now. Sending warm (or cooler) wishes to you!
“Born in 1944 on south side of Chicago into an Irish Catholic family I related to this story so much. Got pulled right into this family's story. Brought back so many memories of life back then. Thank you for writing this story. It is a time capsule.”
