My PR Person Is Tired

By Steph's Scribe @stephverni

My PR person has been working really hard on and off all weekend to get my promos ready for this week as I get set to launch Book #4, The Postcard and Other Short Stories & Poetry. She’s extremely tired and needs to go to bed, but she thought it might be a good idea to share a teaser ad from the collection of short stories. If you’ve never given short stories a try or if you often find yourself saying the phrase, “I never finish a book,” or “I don’t have time to read,” then this particular book might be up your alley. You will be able to finish it because the short stories are, well…short. They move quickly. And they will offer you some satisfaction because you’ll actually finish them quickly and you’ll say, before long, “I finished a book.” I’m saying all this because I remember what it was like when I had small children and wanted to read, but had the hardest time doing it, because by the time they went to bed, I was falling asleep next to them. Plus, we all work like dogs and like to live a little, so sometimes reading isn’t a top priority (not to mention that we’re in love with our phones, which can be a big distraction from reading.)

Honestly, I fell in love with writing by reading short stories and then reading novels. I knew when I read Rosamunde Pilcher’s novel “The Shell Seekers” that I would someday strive to write and publish a book.

If you can find some time, you may enjoy reading the short stories I’ve assembled. Twenty-two in total and a handful of poems that are my favorites.

It only took me three years to make this happen, aren’t you proud?

And my PR person? Well, that’s me.

And I’m pooped.

I’ll let you know when the book is live on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
