Last Friday I posted for the 1000th time on this blog. l think it's time for a break!
First, I have a give away for you! Jayne Martin of In Jayne's World has published a book of essays called "Suitable for Giving, A Collection of Wit with a Side of Wry." I found it to be delightfully entertaining, and Jayne was kind enough to send me two copies; one for me to review, and one to give away to one lucky reader.
Jayne is an exceptionally talented writer whose credits include "Big Spender" for Animal Planet and "A Child too Many," "Cradle of Conspiracy," and "Deceived by Trust" for the Lifetime Channel. I've enjoyed reading her blog now for a couple of years and always enjoy her commentary on life and politics.
Her book consists of a collection of some of her blog posts. Ms. Martin writes of being single at 60, sharing memories of her younger days, including spending her 30th birthday "in bed with Jose Cuervo." In the essay called "A Serving of Guilt With a Twist of Lime," she says she's a 'recovering Catholic,' and that she still gets hives in the presence of nuns.
Jayne touches on many topics that a relevent to all of us. I chuckled my way through the book, and Mr. Eva, also a fan of Jayne's, enjoyed it as well!
If you would like to be entered in the drawing for this book, please comment below. (That's it, no hoops to jump through, although I hope you visit Jayne's blog.) I will announce the winner a week from Monday.
If you prefer to buy a copy of the book, it's available on Amazon on Kindle or in hard copy. Click here.
Mr. Eva and I will be heading south for a little R & R, and although I'll be bringing my laptop with me, I will not be posting everyday while we are gone. Friday Fiction will resume when we return, around the middle or end of March. I'll stop in to read a blog or two while on the trip, but chances are I won't be commenting much. This is a temporary break; I intend to return in full force by the end of March.
Don't forget, you have just a week to enter the drawing for "Suitable for Giving" by Jayne Martin. If you want to get an peek at her writing, check out her blog at In Jayne's World.
