SINKING SHIPS: An Abishag’s First Mystery novella update
On Tuesday, I sent Sinking Ships, the first novella in a new mystery series, to the formatter. I can no longer make any changes which means two things. One: I feel a great relief in filing this document and a great release to focus on other projects. Two: I feel adrift because I can no long fuss with Sinking Ships’ edits and now must focus on other projects.
We’re counting down the days to the Kindle release of the e-novella, the first of four in Abishag series. During this brief limbo, I have a question: If you were a female college student deep in debt, would you consider signing a contract to be an Abishag wife? See the definition below.
from Sinking Ships: In 2002 the US Congress, recognizing the need to standardize the practice of using Abishag wives as part of hospice care, limited providers to certified agencies and Abishag wives to licensed personnel. While an Abishag wife signs a marriage certificate with the patient’s power of attorney, it is the agency contract that defines her role, income during the patient’s last days, and severance pay upon the patient’s death.
If you’re not female, what would you think if your sister, daughter or girlfriend applied?
A Light in the Christmas Cafe
My good friend Kristy Tate published a new book this month, perfect for the Christmas season: A Light in the Christmas Cafe. She collaborated with eleven other authors to offer her book and theirs in a special Christmas on Main Street box set for only 99 cents. I’ve already sent the set to several friends and family, near and far. Less than the cost of a holiday card, it will provide hours of enjoyment.
If you enjoy Kristy’s novel, please consider leaving a review at the Amazon site. Books live and die by reviews.
If we don’t talk before next Thursday, HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
