Publishers Weekly reviews my book

Here’s a surreal chronicle of my experience with Publishers Weekly Booklife, the free review consideration program offered to indie authors, most of whom are eager for exposure but too penniless to do anything about it.

My mother’s sweet tooth

I finish eating my broccoli and I go to put the spoon I used into the sink, which is filled with bowls and dishes.

My mother says, “Bring everything that needs to be washed.”

I say, “I have the bowl I had for the broccoli, but it’s okay. I’ll use it to microwave my chicken in a bit.”

She says, “Bring it here. It’ll attract flies.”

I say, “It won’t. Flies like fruits and onions. Broccoli isn’t sweet to them. They only land on sweet things.”

And I say, “Just like you do,” inducing laughter in her.
