Don't You Wish

Don't you wish the publicity people who wrote book blurbs also wrote the script that plays in your mind. Every morning I could get out of bed and say "Here I am an acclaimed author about to have a brilliant day." My tape is more likely to say, "Get out of bed you lazy bones and wash last night's dishes. What were you thinking in leaving them to soak over night?"

Xlibris wrote this blurb for me and though it's a bit over the top I love it.

Water’s Edge: Stories by Kathleen O’Connor

From acclaimed author Kathleen O’Connor comes a gamut of wonderful and emotion-stirring prose and short stories. Containing fifteen masterpieces, Water’s Edge: Stories by Kathleen O’Connor reminds us of the importance of the connections between family, friends, and neighbors.

The title story, Water’s Edge, details how an alienated young woman forges a bond with her grieving grandmother. In Through the Woods, an elderly man reconnects with a troubled foster child. A young boy in With Harry’s Help survives through his bond with a fictional character.

The stories of this collection bear a common theme—the importance of hope and the need to love one another. Feel engaged as you leaf through the pages of this meaningful anthology.
