Now for my post. Very short due to the competition with A to Z Challengers.
Since it's April 1st, I feel I can admit that I'm a fool. A fool for trying so darned hard to make this whole writing thing work. A fool for dreaming of some modicum of success to alleviate my guilt over devoting so much time to it. A fool to continue struggling. The towel is in my hand. The time to throw it approaches. Damn the fickleness of a creative career.
On a much more positive note, I'm thrilled to share that my lovely critique partner, Beverly Stowe McClure, has a brand new picture book!
Three girls, Emily, Autumn, and Olivia, find their over-active imaginations taking over their common sense one night during a sleep-over. Children, and adults, will readily identify with the characters. We’ve all heard weird noise at night and have freaked ourselves out by imagining the worst. The surprise twist at the end was one I thought might be the right one, and it was fun to know my guess was right. Sort of.
The artwork is sweet and has an old-school charm that really fits the story. I highly recommend this book for mystery solvers and pet lovers!

Please be sure to congratulate Beverly on another job well-done and check out Weird Noises in the Night for the young readers in your life.
