PRISON WIVES

By Nonnie Jules

“From one of her upcoming releases, Nonnie Jules presents…PRISON WIVES.”

I am an unlikely character to tell these stories, but, I do know that each day that we are blessed to open our eyes, we never know what surprises, good or bad, that day will bring.

This is Chapter 1 to give you a taste of the book. This is a novel of the sixties.

Chapter 1 – How Danny Champion stumbled upon the House

Life was not going well for Danny Champion. Even given the vagaries of recent events you could say he was having a bad day. The final bust-up with Cheryl had left him bruised, deflated and defeated. His exasperated explosive fit of temper at work, culminating in his resignation, had been the final trigger that caused Cheryl to call it a day. She regarded him as a hopeless case who would amount to nothing. Then, following a blazing row, she had thrown him out.

Love at First Sight

By Gwendolyn M Plano

“It doesn’t seem real. It just doesn’t seem real.” Mom muttered as she ran her hand over the curves of dad’s headstone. Sighing deeply, she stared blankly into the horizon.

After a few minutes, she turned and faced me. “I tell myself that it must be real.” She seemed to want my approval. “The stone says we were married 70 years. It must have happened; I must have been married. But, but…why can’t I…

TINA FRISCO

While I was on break preparing my first novel for republication, I missed several wonderful posts by my lovely friend Debby Gies.  Debby is one of the most supportive authors it is my privilege to know. She writes compelling memoirs and has five outstanding books to her name. Find them HERE.

Debby’s latest memoir, P.S. I Forgive You, was published in October 2016 and has received nothing less than 5-star reviews.

P.S. I Forgive You by D.G. Kaye

Aside from sharing the work of fellow authors, Debby also writes thought-provoking articles and regularly shares helpful tips.  I’d like to share a few of these now. Perhaps you missed them as well. Since I’m still in catch-up mode,  I’m including a few of her later posts.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I have ❤

I’m so grateful to have this task behind me! It took quite a bit longer than I expected, largely due to how poorly I wrote five years ago compared with now. I decided to give the book a quick overhaul, forgetting it was not a vehicle that merely needed an oil change. And once I started, there was no turning back. I did all the formatting, which can be a nightmare. But I learned…
