Good evening on this warm, wet Saturday from Maine!
Today’s shout-out goes to a fellow Maine author, Meg Rice Wilson. Last year, she published the e-book, Crappy New Year. The story is about Tess, a teenage girl who is dealing with the prospect of her mother remarrying. This is a beautiful book and I don’t say that lightly. It is a funny, poignant, heartbreaking look into the life of a young woman whose entire life is changing. I will admit that I cried about 1/6 of the way into the book. Wilson’s humorous prose is refreshing and breathes new life into an often misunderstood topic.
This story was at one point #12 on Amazon’s humor category in E-books. Oh, and did I mention that it’s downloadable for free today? Take advantage of this sweet offer while you can!
Her second upcoming book, Mourning Dove, is a contender for the 2012 Amazon Breakthrough Novel award. She’s in the semi-finals now. Knowing how accomplished her writing is from having read Crappy New Year, I’m certain she’s going to be a tough opponent to beat for this award. My fingers are crossed for you, Meg!
