Readers, I know you’re out there!
I checked the super-sneaky site stats, and I have no clue how you found my blog, but you did. From Russia to the UK to the US, you’re reading what I’m writing. And I most sincerely hope you’re enjoying my take on the world.
You’ll notice I posted the first chapter of my novel, “Cutty’s Ark.” Cuthbert Pye and his crew have been languishing in limbo. (Doesn’t every writer worth her/his salt have a novel in their metaphorical bottom desk drawer?) Well, as of today, they get to come out and play.
Aside from the fact that I thought it might be fun to share the tale, at least the beginning, and beg for reader feedback, but I’ve also entered Cutty’s Ark in a contest on Stumbleupon.com. You see, I’m hoping to GET DISCOVERED! And then I can share Pye and the crew with the whole world.
So, this is my modest first step. If you’re an armchair traveler and feel like getting a taste of what it’s like to live in a marina on the Chesapeake Bay, then you’ve come to the right place.
I’ve spent enough time in marinas by the bay helping to plank, plug and run caulk, as well as doing anything involving wood, that I know these boating characters inside and out.
Please vote for Cutty’s Ark and maybe we’ll both get to see it on the big screen. It would also make a fun TV series, with nary of whiff of reality show!
As soon as I find out more info on the voting (which starts on Wed August 15 @ stumbleupon.com), I’ll post a link. And, as advertised, here it is:
Hey, I ain’t too proud to beg. Not when it’s for a good cause.
Thanks for reading this far. I can’t begin to tell you how much I really do appreciate your support!
Now, go to StumbleUpon.com and “Like” Cutty’s Ark!
