Boogie, Boots & Cherry Pie, oh my!

To be released soon on Kindle

What’s up?- You may have been wondering where I’ve been. I’ve been doing a lot of research for a project that will become a one-man show. More on that later. I’ve missed you all!
The cover above is for my new romance. I plan to put it on Kindle soon. Someday. When the tomatoes get ripe (I live in a rain forest!). I don’t know why I have such a hard time releasing my books. I don’t want to let them go.
Boogie, Boots & Cherry Pie is a very light romance:
When Lily moves into the renovated building that has been converted into apartments, she discovers almost every tenant has an exotic animal for a pet, and what she has really done is move onto the third floor of a zoo. Unfortunately, some of the animals aren’t under control, and when she meets a great guy who drops her off at her apartment after her company’s St. Patrick’s Day party, the first thing he sees is a sign on the door: Please Don’t Let Out The Snake! Is this the beginning of a great romance or just the beginning of a great snake hunt?
Politics- I’ve been busy so I haven’t kept up with Bernie Madoff, our country’s great swindler. How ya doin’ over there in the big house, Bernie? What’s for lunch?
Nothing explains the Republican Party better than Donald Trump going out to lunch with Sara Palin at a pizza restaurant whose franchise orignated in Poland. I may be wrong about Poland...but Jon Stewart says it was the worst choice for a pizza lunch in a city known for its pizza restaurants...
On my TV-
Anthony Bourdain, No Reservations. I love the film of faraway locations and his interaction with the people there.
The Turner Channel- Love the old black and white movies.
Joan Rivers, A Piece of Work- What a talent she is. This backstage peek at her life is an eye opener.
On my radio- Gerry Bradley, Chit Chat, KLAY-1180 A. M. talk radio, 8:45-9:00 A. M. If you’re in the Tacoma area, give a listen.
On my bed table-
Lots of research books on the American West- I have loved every minute of it. It is my new definition of a briar patch.
Do the Work, Steven Pressfield- I am hooked on self-help books, but this was a silly choice. The last thing I need is motivation to work. But get it. Read it on the beach. Confuse the masses.
Elements of Inclusive Language, Val Dumond-Val is a great resource. Check out her new blog The Anarchists Guide to Grammar  http://grammaranarchist.blogspot.com/ 
The Help, Kathryn Stockett- Loved it!
