I'm getting ready for a BIG party on Saturday - my mom's 90th birthday celebration! All birthdays are reasons to celebrate, but reaching 90? Becoming a nonagenarian? Now that's something special, isn't it? Everyone is super-excited, but no one more than Mom, because she never dreamed she'd live this long. We are all blessed.
|Here's Mom and me playing our favorite game.|
To share this special day with my readers, I'm offering a free Kindle copy of my latest release Birthday Party, 2nd in my Daisy Hunter Series.
Blurb: It's Suzanne's 13th birthday, and Daisy is shocked and saddened to learn that she's never had a birthday party. So she sets out to give her one, complete with a cake, ice cream, soda, and balloons. But when Suzanne's mother shows up, the party's over. A poignant coming of age story where good will and alcoholism collide.
The Daisy Hunter stories are important to me because they're loosely based on my childhood experiences and inspired by my mom, Margaret Kasica Clairmont. You see, a family like the Donnelly's lived in my neighborhood, and my mother did look after the children, sharing from our meager kitchen because they were hungry and couldn't rely on their own parents to feed them. And my mother did throw a birthday party for the elder daughter, and her mother was livid when she found out. But that never stopped my mom. She loves everyone, and will give whatever she has to someone in want. Could that be the source of her longevity?
Please download a free copy of Birthday Party on Amazon July 28-30. If you prefer to read on another device send me an email and I'll send you a link where you can download a PDF or EPUB version. And, if you prefer audiobooks, stay tuned, because Birthday Party will be out on Audible any day now and I will have free download codes for my readers.
This is a new release and in need of reviews, so if you enjoy the story please post your comments.
Now off to the party! And you can bet there'll be plenty of cake, ice cream, soda, and balloons!
