I'm On Sale!

All art is solitary and the studio is a torture area. - Alexander Liberman

Okay... I'm not on sale, but some of my stories are! It's Vintage Rose month at The Wild Rose Press, and all of their vintage titles are discounted. It just so happens that I have two vintage titles with them, so if you haven't purchased them already, now is the time!

Don't Fence Me In -- only $2.70
It's June, 1953 and Lizzie Scott recently lost her brother, Seb, in the Korean War. When his friend and unit buddy, Jeremy McMasters, brings her Seb's "goodbye" letter, little does she know her life is about to change forever.

Miles From You -- only $1.35!

It's 1948, and thirty-four year-old diner owner Millie Townsend is well on the shelf. Millie's fallen hard for regular customer, Paul Whittier, a veteran of World War II and a civil engineer. When she discovers he's accepted a new job out of state and it's their last evening together, how can this ultra-shy spinster find the nerve to show she's interested in more than just friendship?

Additionally, I'm going to get an interview with at least one of the Vintage Editors at TWRP -- got any questions you'd like answered? Here's your chance to ask an editor! Just leave me a comment.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.



DD is thoroughly enjoying her curriculum now that it's working. It offers games and pictures and sounds. She's learning Spanish and walks around the house speaking various phrases and words she knows. I only know enough Spanish to be polite (I can say "How are you" and "Very well, you?" LOL... OH and I can count to twenty), so she's teaching me and thinks that's a hoot.

I tried to enroll her in art classes yesterday, but for some reason the art center was closed -- no explanation, just a handwritten sign on the door. **sigh** I'll try again next week, I guess. Frustrating.

DH and DD might go up to his uncle's place today to do some end of season stuff. Well, DH will do the chores, DD will play in the lake. And that will hopefully give me some alone time. I love my DD, but spending every minute of every day with her can be wearing. She's a very good girl, but exuberant and talkative which doesn't mesh well with cave-dwelling me.


Stole a quiz from Anno. It's the Color Career Counselor test, and it evaluates your personality based upon color preferences.

My primary career path, according to this is as follows:


Key Words: Independent, Self-Motivated, Reserved, Introspective, Analytical, and Curious

Yep... that's about right.

Funny thing was my secondary:


Key Words: Tactful, Cooperative, Generous, Understanding, Insightful, Friendly, and Cheerful

Doesn't that seem the polar opposite of the first? Judy says I must have used her half of our brain for those questions, because it fits her much better! *G*


Your picture of the day:

DD and Dd playing board games...

Tee hee.... I wonder who won?



Melissa said...

Oh, a sale! Thanks for letting us know.

I love that pic! We're big fans of the game of Life here, but the kids have yet to drag Choas into it. She usually steps all over things too much!

Dru said...

Love the photo of DD and Dd playing. Too cute.

I'm glad things are working properly with DD's school work.

Darn, my office firewall won't let me take the quiz.

Charity said...

Now, see. Dakota looks perfectly calm in that photo. *Snort*

My kids love Life. And playing games with the dogs. Methinks they might get along (all of them, kids and dogs).

Tori Lennox said...

You're a CREATOR

Key Words: Nonconforming, Impulsive, Expressive, Romantic, Intuitive, Sensitive, and Emotional

Yep, that's pretty accurate. Go figure!

But my secondary:


Key Words: Witty, Competitive, Sociable, Talkative, Ambitious, Argumentative, and Aggressive

More so online than in 'real' life. *g*

Brandy said...

Glad to hear that DD's schoolwork is working properly now. Funny on her teaching you Spanish. *G* (And I know exactly what you mean about loqaucious kids!)
The photo is cute!

I hope you're having a pleasant day!

I loved your short story, Miles From You. Thanks for mentioning the sale.

Have a great weekend!
