The View From My Writing Room

I just got back from four days on our boat (a Grampian 30 sailboat), which is moored on Lake Ontario. My better half, John, and I spend most summer weekends on our boat, and I wrote a good part of "The Sock Wars" while on it. I did a bunch of edits on my upcoming novel, "The Migraine Mafia" this weekend, and this was my view:

Have You Read "The Dirty Parts of the Bible"?

I read this novel in 2011 and fell in love with it; it's very well written, engaging, and unique; "a humorous novel set during the Great Depression---a rollicking tale of love and liquor, preachers and prostitutes, trains and treasure, sure to appeal to fans of Water for Elephants, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Mark Twain, and Johnny Cash."

I was very happy to wake up this morning at #19 on the Amazon Kindle Humor bestseller list...
...right beside it. Looks like it's just .99 right now, so it's a great time to pick up a copy
