This That and The-Other! Plus Teaser Tuesday!

Tuesday seems like a good day for this, that and the-other, so that's what this will be!

First of all, my sweet husband Don has his highly entertaining short-story up on Amazon.com for purchase.  This is a great Colorado tale that is perfect for downloading on your ipod or other devices for a short, but truly funny story that will have you smiling the rest of the day!

Don also has a short story "The Deaf Man's Demise," in the new collection, Pulp Empire, Volume Three!  This is available through lulu.com (http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/pulp-empire-volume-three/13384159?showPreview)

This being Teaser Tuesday as well, I offer you this little tease from my current read, "The Seventeen Second Miracle" by Jason F. Wright

"She moves with grace around the store, like a concert pianist playing on her feet. Her shelves of books are like keys on a piano that only she knows how to play."
Page 50 - "The Seventeen Second Miracle."

This is an incredible book that will touch the hearts and souls of anyone who picks it up!  Watch for my review later this week!

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading (http://shouldbereading.wordpress.com/).

The Literary Life radio show features Literary Inspirations on their latest episode - Here's a little more about the show:

In this episode of The Literary Life, we're going to explore what's at the heart of all good writing and reading: inspiration. Where it comes from, the different ways writers find it in themselves, and how editors help turn that inspiration into books that we wan to read and cherish.
We'll hear from Sigrid Nunez, whose provocative new novel, Salvation City, explores what happens when the world as we know it falls apart. Joe Pernice, critically-acclaimed musician and author of the funny and touching novel It Feels So Good When I Stop, tells us how songwriting and prose use inspiration in very different ways. We'll also speak to the editor of the international bestseller The Help about discovering and working with Kathryn Stockett, the author of one of the most successful debut novels of the decade.
Lastly, journalist and author Virginia Ironside, author of the upcoming book You're Old, I'm Old…Get Over It! joins us to rant about writers using the present tense in our latest installation of The Writer's Rant.

And finally, had to share my cute little book avatar - Isn't she cute!

Here is my teaser from The Trophy Bride’s Tale by Cyrilla Barr (page 1):

I have never seen an execution! I am terrified & tremble uncontrollably now as I stand on the fringes of restless crowd desperately hoping that no one will notice me in my shabby pilgrim’s weeds. At that I saw his face break into a warm smile and I knew I had at last reached safer ground.
