Forgotten: Compilation 12/09/2022

Being spellbound by his looks
self catering to my tastes
I finally took a cruise
but forgot one thing in haste
While hiking in the alps
No grace left to my style
I had to take a rest
For at least a little while
When suddenly it hit
the thing that was ravaging my brain
was this very handsome man
in a shirt with a grease stain
It took me back to when
I had traveled in the past
He was a foody hoarder
My eyes on him did then not last

Fandango’s Flashback Friday — December 9th

So this is from December 10th, 2020. It seems like when I finally remember to do Friday Flashback that is the one day that I have no posts, and most of you know I post/blog almost every day!

The Way I Feel

The way you look at me each day 
sends shivers up my spine 
I love your eyes and sexy voice 
The way your hand holds mine 

The joy you bring to me each day 
makes my heart just skip a beat 
You make me quiver in my shoes 
and knock me off my feet. 

Seeing you with me each day 
makes me jubilant and fine 
I’m glad that you have me to love 
and that I have made you mine.

New Book Cover Reveal: New Normal (Women’s Fiction/ Light-Hearted)

We’re thrilled to present the cover for an up-and-coming release called New Normal by Michelle Paris! Read on for more details!

New Normal

Expected Publication Date: Spring 2023

Genre: Women’s Fiction/ Light-Hearted 

Publisher: Apprentice House Press

After the sudden death of her husband, Emilie Russell just wants to feel normal. But being a middle-aged widow doesn’t come with a how-to manual. Her well-meaning friend, Viv, believes the cure to all that ails is simple: a new man. So, she sets Emilie up with her handsome and charming new neighbor, widower Colin. There’s only one problem with the plan—Colin is gay.

Emilie embarks on a rollicking journey of self-discovery with Colin as her mentor and best friend. From learning to swipe right without cringing while midlife dating in constricting shapeware to cougar moments in Key West, Emilie reenters the dating pool with both humorous and soul-crushing results.

With the encouragement of her friends, including a new furry one, plus a little therapy, Emilie begins forging a new life, one where she exchanges tears for laughter, and one that maybe—just maybe—includes the courage to find love again.
