Not sure if this will be the final cover or not, but I like it. It “feels” the same as the cover for The Waitress. It fits.

I Have An Interview!!
I Have An Interview!!

Here’s yesterday’s interview about The Waitress. It was SO much fun!

I’ll be posting in a day or two about what a freaky-deaky set of mishaps I had leading up to it… nearly didn’t manage it at all.

Meantime, if you haven’t already, PLEASE pick up a copy of the book. This “Starving Artist” phase ain’t nearly as romantic as the media makes it out to be…

The Waitress, the Whiskey, and the Handcuffs – Part III

The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs
Part 1 of The Ruby Chronicles

Ruby Daniel is a 30-something widow trying to get by in a small backwoods Northern town in the 1950’s. Her chicken farm is failing, and she takes a weekend job as a barmaid at an illegal drinking establishment run by a crooked police officer, hoping the extra income will allow her to keep her farm and raise her kids.

When her crude and offensive employer plays an embarrassing prank on her, Ruby gets revenge with the help of her mother, whose devious tactics and unrestrained glee in the details of retaliation leave Ruby in awe, and a little fearful of the woman who raised her.

This comedic short story will leave you laughing out loud and cheering Ruby on, as she learns that standing up for herself can sometimes backfire, but revenge really does taste sweet – and an indignant mother is a surprisingly fierce force to be reckoned with…
