Isn't it funny how one person can absolutely love a book and another person can't get into it. Doesn't like it at all. I guess that's one reason why there are so many different books written by so many different authors each with different themes, characters, ideas. I love it that we are so diversified. I love that I have so many different choices.
I'm writing this because of the new story I'm in the process of editing - The Mountain View Café. It's a story I wrote a while back. My sister loved it. Her friend Margo did too. I had a beta reader look at it and she told me it was hard to read and was probably the least favorite of the books I had written.
I smile because that's okay. I want my writing to invoke different feelings and emotions. If not, I wouldn't have done my job. Right?
I'll be anxious for you to read my book - The Mountain View Café and let me know how you like it (or not) Lol
Here's a brief blurb:

rushes into his office and throws him into an impossible situation.
Can these four lost souls, who have
struggled to survive the pain and hurt life has thrown at them, find the
happiness they are searching for at the Mountain View Café?
I'm excited to finally get this one published. I'll be anxious to hear what you think.
In the meantime, enjoy that you have so many wonderful stories to choose from. I am. I love reading, and I love reading new works by authors I haven't read before.
Take a care. Find a new author. Try out a new book! And I'll let you know when The Mountain View Café is published.
Summer brings to mind Vacations. Time to get away from the daily grind. Unwind and enjoy your family, friends, or just take time for yourself. There are so many wonderful places to visit - the ocean, camping, fishing, riding ATVs, luxury spas and resorts, cruise ships - there's definitely something for everyone.
As I've said before, my favorite place is Yellowstone National Park. When I was a young girl, my folks took our family there each summer. There are probably still some trees in the fishing bridge area that have my initials carved in them.
As I've grown older, I've enjoyed learning more about the history of our first National Park and that includes the ghost stories that abound which gave me the idea to write one of my own.
If you haven't had the chance to read it, try it today. I've had several good reviews.
