When it comes to promoting my own work, I am extremely self-consciousness. However, here are three announcements that may interest you.
For a limited time this week and weekend, When the Lights Go Out [Kindle Edition]! is a available as a FREE download. Of course, you may listen to the audio version by visiting the Podcast page, but the e-book version has a bonus chapter not available on that episode of the podcast.
I am excited to announce the release of The Vanishing Art of Letter Writing [Kindle Edition]!
This e-book collects four stories from a Coffeehouse Junkie audio podcast plus an additional chapter. The Vanishing Art of Letter Writing includes a story that asks the question: When was the last time your wrote a letter? Not an email, but a handwritten letter with pen, paper, envelope and postage. Also, learn about a legacy of letters from a WWII soldier discovered by his son.
Here is the list of stories:
- Afternoon poetry and jazz
- The vanishing art of letter writing
- The letter
- Writing with pen and paper
- Plus a bonus chapter (not included in the audio version)!
Listen to the audio:

I love this title, “The Vanishing Arts of Letter Writing.” So evocative.
Art. Typing is not my friend today.
Hah! I completely know what you mean, Alli.
And congratulations on your book deal! I read that news on your blog. That is so exciting!
The art of letter writing is something I have explored for the last couple years. When I worked for a book publishing house I designed a book that captured a story of a son who had discovered his father’s letters during the war.
I have hand written notes and letters to people — mostly family — for years. It is interesting to note that the number of people who respond in kind — i.e. written letter — has diminished notably. Most who receive these letters reply in an email or on Facebook.
