BOOK RELEASE!!! And Visiting Gae
A little odd, these non-launches. No event. Who would come out in this sub-zero weather. But to help me launch the day, I've added a stop to my blog tour, which is really also part of my buddy Gae Polisner's Book release. It's funny, because of my writing friends, Gae is one who brings out my silly the most, and you know I can do silly. She's pretty goofy, too, but in a totally sincere, caring way. Go figure. Two cancers of a certain age from opposite sides of the country (at least until I closed two-thirds of the distance). Anyway, in spite of this shared goofiness, her theme brought out the pensive me. So there you go... go see me if you want to see me being reflective. (I think she posts at 7 or something): http://ghpolisner.blogspot.com/2014/03/the-summer-of-letting-go-karma-or_4.html
Here is a bit about Gae's book: The Summer of Letting Go releases March 25th:
Summer has begun, the beach beckons—and Francesca Schnell is going nowhere. Four years ago, Francesca’s little brother, Simon, drowned, and Francesca’s the one who should have been watching. Now Francesca is about to turn sixteen, but guilt keeps her stuck in the past. Meanwhile, her best friend, Lisette, is moving on—most recently with the boy Francesca wants but can’t have. At loose ends, Francesca trails her father, who may be having an affair, to the local country club. There she meets four-year-old Frankie Sky, a little boy who bears an almost eerie resemblance to Simon, and Francesca begins to wonder if it’s possible Frankie could be his reincarnation. Knowing Frankie leads Francesca to places she thought she’d never dare to go—and it begins to seem possible to forgive herself, grow up, and even fall in love, whether or not she solves the riddle of Frankie Sky.
