Happy Friday! Last weekend I took off four days and it was absolutely wonderful. Since then I’ve been trying to get caught up with work. Luckily today is Friday and soon I’ll be relaxing once again. I wish every week was short and sweet.
Tomorrow is the last day to enter May’s e-book giveaway. Don’t miss your chance to win five fabulous e-books from some of my favorite authors. Click here for more details. On Monday I’ll announce the titles for June’s giveaway.
Today I’m tickled pink to help Nick announce the publication of his collection: A Change of Mind and Other Stories. Nick’s a blogging buddy and a great writer. Check out the excerpt below. Have a marvelous weekend, folks!
In A Change of Mind, Reuben is an office worker so meek and mild he puts up with daily bullying from his boorish male colleagues as if it’s just a normal part of his day. But when a stranger points him in the direction of a surgeon offering a revolutionary new procedure, he can’t pass up the chance to turn his life around.
But this isn’t your average surgeon. For a start, he operates alone in a small room above a mechanic’s. And he promises to alter his patients’ personality so they can be anything they want to be…
In Marissa, a man who is determined to find evidence of his girlfriend’s infidelity ends up wondering if he should have left well alone.
The Dog God finds a chink in the armour of a man with a megalomaniacal desire to take over the world.
In The Insomniac, a man who leads an obsessively regimented lifestyle on one hour’s sleep a night finds a disruption to his routine doesn’t work for him.
Hole In One sees a dedicated golfer achieving a lifelong ambition.
The Loner ends the collection on a note of hope as two family members try to rebuild their lives after they are torn apart by jealousy.
I had to stop myself from rolling my eyes and telling the guy he sounded like my dad. Somehow, I didn’t think that would help.
