Today Is The Day! Steps Along Our Shore & Words For Wednesday

Today is the day! Well, yesterday was the day. Then tomorrow will also be the day. What am I talking about? My second self-help book, Steps Along  Our Shore  has arrived. The Kindle version is live and the paperback will follow tomorrow.

 Steps Along Our Shore

Steps Along Our Shore

Much like my first book, there won’t be a blog tour or any promotions anywhere. My book is targeted to such a specific audience I feel it’s best to keep it here in my corner of the world. If I write it, they will read it, right?

Thank you to everyone for your valuable feedback on the cover and the subtitle. You guys rock!


Today I’m also participating kinda sorta in a writing challenge from last week. I’m really late to the challenge (Um, hello A-Z), so I don’t even know if I’m even it, but hey, Elephant’s Child is awesome and I know she won’t mind. It’s called Words for Wednesdays. Only this was last week’s prompt.

I chose this amazing picture from Bill Dodds:

When Bonnie remarked how dull the red bench had become over the years. He didn’t care. He watched as birds perched on top of it day after day. He didn’t care. Still, Bonnie drank her coffee, just as they did every morning at the Sunrise diner and talked about the dull, red paint. He didn’t care. Two years turned into ten. Ten into twenty. Still, he didn’t care. On October 17, 2018, he finally cared. He threw bright, red roses onto Bonnies’s casket as they lowered it down into the ground. Then, he carried the bucket of bright, red paint to the bench where he wished he had cared more. He felt the sun burning the back of his neck. He didn’t care.

What do you see when you look at this picture?
