Thank you for reading this blog entry! This is the sixth post on the Forever Friends blog tour. If you are following the tour, thanks again for your support! If you missed the start of the book tour, please check the previous five blogs for December1st-5th listed at the end of this post, where you will also find links to amazon.com and B&N.com for anyone considering ordering a copy of Forever Friends. At the time of writing this blog post, the tour has already begun and the second blog post will be appearing within a matter of hours. On those two posts, I talked about the wonderful comments I received about the book and gave a brief outline of the book’s contents. Two comments I received since I wrote those posts came from two of the book’s contributors:
“Being a part of this compilation was a great experience for me. The poems and stories in this book reflect the love and friendship that is found in the world. if one just takes a moment to notice them.
Thank you to all the contributors for making this a positive and endearing book.”
“I love this book and I’m not just saying that because a short poem of mine appears in it. In these days of chaos, what better time to focus on friends in stories and verse! There are many views of friends here and each one pulls us farther into the book and reminds us of the best parts of our lives: our friends.”
Dick is one of those friends who make the world a better place. I would like to thank him for inviting me onto his blog. I share Dick’s sense of humor and thoroughly enjoyed reading his book of short stories, The Rough Old Stuff, sixteen of his stories published in Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine from 1979 to 1985. I can wholeheartedly recommend the book to everyone who enjoys dry wit and a wicked sense of humor.
Dick’s short story in the anthology, A Dog’s Best Friend is well written and entertaining. The dialogue and prose are skillfully handled and make for an enjoyable read. Dick also has a keen eye for human mannerisms, no doubt from twenty years as a reporter, sportswriter and daily columnist at the Muncie Evening Press in Indiana. The column won a United Press International (UPI) award as Best in Indiana.
Dick’s story is one of many that will entertain readers and make them want to read on. Order your copy now. As I keep saying, you will not be disappointed!
Forever Friends is available now from amazon.com:
Thanks again for reading this and best wishes for the holiday season!
