I want to thank my lucky stars and God, of course, for a wonderful month of acceptance into two anthologies and one magazine of my literary and photography work.
In early June, Well Versed Literary Works 2014, held their book launch in Columbia, Missouri. While I was unable to attend the celebration, I am happy to say they selected four of my works (and loves) for inclusion into their exquisite literary anthology.
“My Morning Delight” was a sweet tribute to my cat Scooby, who entered this world with a roar, and left with a whisper.
“Modern Resonance” a funky poem, spoke of my love for jazz.
“Ode to Sunset Beach” told of my undying passion for all things ocean, sky, sea, and nature.
On June 18, I was notified by Dahlynn McKowen of Publishing Syndicate that my essay, “Mom’s Best Advice” was accepted for inclusion in NYMB on Family, which was released on June 24. Anyway, there’s a really cool event on July 15 at St. Louis Books in Kirkwood, Missouri. Alot of the local contributing authors will be there signing books. Hope you can make it.
In mid May, I was asked by the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park to submit four personal photographs to MODERN Magazine, a boutique architecture mag in New York, not available on newsstands. One interior and three exterior views were accepted for the Summer 2014 issue and grace the pages of 80-82 along with a lovely feature article title “Open House” by Joanne Kohn and Laura Meyer.

I’d like to thank the editors for publishing my literary and photographic works. I truly appreciate the opportunities.
Our book, Folly Beach Dances, is doing quite well. For a small publisher we’ve sold more book by word of mouth in five weeks – we’re into triple digits.
There are three local booksigning events coming up in the St. Charles County area, and a schedule is being set for the Charleston, South Carolina area. Two bookstores, Indigo Books in St. John’s Island, and Blue Bicycle Books in Charleston, will be carrying Folly Beach Dances, just as soon as they receive their shipments.
Well, now that I’ve run on for so long, everyone go and have a positive day.
Remember to dance!
