Peggy Fellouris Shares Her Exciting News!
Yes, I am bubbling over with pleasure. It seems that being a part of the LA Times Festival was the epitome of showing off an author’s book. Well, I have a double dip of pleasure.
Recently, the New York Times Book Review presented my book 3 Boys And A Boat under the heading, Unforgettable Stories. Now I can say my books are being shown Coast to Coast.
Writing the stories is a very pleasurable hobby. Who would have thought that the many years of counseling would have led to retiring to write? The wonderful comments from friends and professionals are most rewarding. Ron indicated that his reading brought the characters into real people. It causes me to smile whenever he says the Ron in the story Dancing in the Rain isn’t patterned after him. Now really who would have thought that anyway?
When the main character broadcasts a baseball game in The Man in a Black Cashmere Coat, You might close your eyes and hear the voice of the sportsman Joe DeFelice. It makes writing a work of art when you can call upon professionals in various fields.
I was reading a Danielle Steel’s book Power Play. Her characters seemed to be from everyday life and still the Reader could feel some of the emotion that is presented on the page.
One a friend who had just completed Dancing in the Rain and complained the main character didn’t make the important telephone call. I smiled and replied, “ that might have been the flaw in his character.” She quickly replied, “You could have made him do it.” Yes, at times we get into the book with the characters.
Soon The Man in a Black Cashmere Coat will appear on the book shelves. I hope you will enjoy it too. Here is a sneak preview of the book.
You may already know that the publisher Author House has become part of Random House. In my TV commercials it may be talking about 3 Boys And A Boat and you may notice the leap Random House Publishers have taken.
Happy reading to all of you!
