#LASReviews #bloggingchallenge 8.12.2020

Some of the topics in this blog challenge are so easy for me to write, this one no exception. WHAT I WANTED TO DO WHEN I GREW UP vs WHAT I DO.

When I was a lonely, solitary, and quirky kid growing up in Staten Island, I wanted to do 2 things when I grew up: write stories and be a Nurse.

Luckily, I became both.

As a nursing student, and then a Registered Nurse, I had several articles on Nursing care and topics published in trade magazines and newspapers. Topics ranging from Nurse Preceptor programs, to feeding issues for Alzheimer patients, even the importance of keeping sexually active into our golden years were topics I covered and was thrilled to see in print.

The desire to write more than non-fiction, though, burned through me, so I also wrote short stories, many of which were published in literature magazines.

To be able to combine the two things I’d always loved was simply wonderful.

As a child I never had lofty aspirations. No desire to be a prima ballerina, the first woman President, or fly to Mars. I simply wanted to care for sick people and write stories to entertain them.

And I do.

A little sample to whet your #bookreading appetites

I love when one of my publishers comes up with something new and exciting. The Wild Rose Press has put together a collection of 1st chapter samplers from many of its authors to whet the book reading appetites of readers.

Don’t know if you really want to read that new book you saw marketed all over Twitter? Not sure you want to take on a new-to-you author without first reading something by them? This is the perfect opportunity for you, then.

The first sampler is a collection of 10 Contemporary Romance first chapters, titled FALLING FOR YOU: Contemporary Romance Sampler,

and my own book DEARLY BELOVED is included.

 

The other fabulous authors  and their books included are:
Sunset in Laguna by Claire Marti
Dearly Beloved by Peggy Jaeger 
The Millionaire Mountain Climber by Laura Boon 
Morgan’s Walk by Suzelle Johnston 
Only the Beginning by Daphne Dubois 
Saying Yes to the Mess by M. Kate Quinn 
The Saffron Conspiracy: A Novel by Marilyn Baron 
Operation Sizzle by Darcy Lundeen 
Without Love by Theresa Stillwagon 
Don’t Let Him Go by Kay Harris

At just $.99cents, this is a great way to find some really good books to read and fabulous authors to get to know. In the coming months there will be more samplers in different genres released and I’ll be spotlighting them here.

Until then, I hope you find your new favorite author among this list ( and I hope it’s me! Shameless, thy name is Peggy!)
