As you may already know, I write in different genres, although most of it has been in women’s fiction and Japanese short form poetry. I’ve had two exciting things happen in the past couple of days in both.
My third women’s fiction with a strong romantic element, The Smell of Roses, published by Crimson Cloak Publishing, was released on the weekend, and this morning I found out that my poetry book, Wondering What’s Next, published by Cyberwit.net, has found a home in the Burlington Public Library. Thank you to all involved in making those things happen. I am grateful. Here’s a little blurb about The Smell of Roses (available in e-book and in print on Amazon)…
Groomed to run the family business, Sarah Ballister sacrifices everything else in life to climb the ladder to vice-president. Unsure of who she is anymore, if not the person her judgemental parents mapped out, she makes the agonizing decision to leave Ballisters.
Sarah meets Sam Fergus, a shoe-shine man with a disarming smile, when he asks to shine her Louboutin’s at the airport. She also runs into businessman Dan Jamison, who expresses interest in Ballisters.
Dan calls the next time he’s in town and asks her to meet him at the airport. Walking past the shoe-shine stand, she sees Sam again. She glances back at him and is surprised she has butterflies. Could the woman known as the queen of acquisitions really be flirting with the shoe-shine man?
