This time last year, my manuscript was with beta readers. Now, I'm thrilled to announce that Thicker Than Water is in the press again (this time, with my own byline!) and has been picked up by several additional retailers.
If you're down the shore this week, make sure you check out Wildwood Sure Guide (available throughout the island) for my article about Frank Hilton's Rum Ring.
A very special Thank You to the Wildwood Historical Museum for the connection, as well as sending me a copy of the paper. Link to be posted in the near future, so check back.
Also, ICYMI, you can read my interview with Shore Local here.
Here's my favorite excerpt:
“There’s a grit to my characters. It’s a story for the underdogs. The invisible and broken. It’s for anyone who’s felt that, no matter how hard they tried, they’d never be good enough.”
Anyone else have a love/hate relationship with August? I always find this time of year so bittersweet. As much as I'm trying to savor every last drop of summer, there's a part of me that's straight up Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Of course, as those who love the Shore already know, there's plenty to do in the shoulder seasons. Including the Harvest Brew Fest hosted by Cape May MAC.
This year's festival takes place on Saturday, September 17th, and runs from 10 am to 5 pm.
Enjoy craft beers and celebrate South Jersey during this all-day festival that commemorating all things local! This event is FREE to attend. Varying costs for food, beer, and crafts vendors.
Oh, and guess what? I'll be there, too!
Not only is Cape May MAC stocking TTW in their museum shops (at the Emlen Physick Estate, Cape May Lighthouse, and World War II Lookout Tower), but they've graciously invited me to do an in-person signing at the festival beginning at noon.
Proceeds from this event go toward the organization's preservation efforts. So stop on by, I'd love to see you!
Sailing into the weekend with this Shelfie from Whale's Tale.
What are your end-of-summer plans?
