I’m Now On Facebook!!!

It took me a long time to make the transition to Facebook but I’ve finally done it. I’m now part of the social media.

I’m gathering old friends and hopefully making some new ones. It’s a great way to reach out to people. I also have an author’s page where people can go to see my recent work.

I’ve met some other poets and writers and it’s fun to read their posts and see some of there work.

See you there…..

Just Received an Update on the Collection of Children’s Short Stories

The publisher, Alfie Dog Limited, just emailed that the title has been changed to “Read it Again” since not all the stories  in the book will be about Christmas. My story is “Carla the Little Red Hen” (not a Christmas story).

There are only 20 authors included in this ebook and paperback. Naturally I am thrilled to be one of the authors. The ebook will sell at Alfie Dog website, Amazon, and Smashwords. I hope that you will take advantage of this book. Obviously, the cost is minimal.   I will notify you when the paperback version is available and where to purchase it. I’ve seen  a draft of the cover and it’s very enticing.
