Giving My Self to the Wind Book Launch Party with Author
Sunday Jan. 28th @ 3pm
This book is a collection of short stories, essays, and more. The 'more' includes some flash fiction, a few pieces of humor, an unbundled pile of letters, a section called 'Pajama Series,' a motley crew of memorable characters in the 'persons' area, and reprints of some of the articles that have appeared in a regional magazine.
So my readers can know what the pieces are about I have included an index. The topics include adoption, aging, a convertible, peanut butter, and of course, writing. Plus: Lake Tahoe, the Eiffel Tower, thong underwear, happiness, snoring, a toupee, and mom, of course. There's so much more!
