New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

About Patty L. Fletcher #Sunday Sharing

This week’s blogger bio comes from Patty Fletcher, author and owner of TELL-IT-TO-THE-WORLD Marketing, which promotes authors and other business owners through social media and other traditional approaches. You’ll find links to her blog and other social media sites. Now here’s what Patty has to say, in her own words.

ABOUT PATTY L. FLETCHER

 

I’m a single mother with a beautiful daughter, of whom I am enormously proud. I have a great son-in-law and six beautiful grandchildren. From April, 2011 through September, 2020 I owned and handled a black Labrador from The Seeing Eye® named King Campbell Lee Fletcher A.K.A. Bubba. Sadly, after a long battle with illness on September 24, 2020 King Campbell went to the Rainbow Bridge where all is peace and love. It is my hope to one day return to The Seeing Eye for a successor guide.

ABOUT MY BLINDNESS…

I was born one and a half months premature. My blindness was caused by my being given too much oxygen in the incubator. I was partially sighted until 1991, at which time I lost my sight due to an infection after cataract surgery and high eye pressure. I used a cane for 31 years before making the change to a guide dog.

WHERE I LIVE AND WORK…

Currently, I live and work in Kingsport, Tenn. I used to work for CONTACT-CONCERN of Northeast Tennessee, Inc. I left that position to spend time with my family and pursue my writing full time. I’m now the creator, and owner of Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing (Author, Blogger, Business Assist)

WRITING GOAL…

I write with the goal of bridging the great chasm which separates the disabled from the non-disabled.

MY BUSINESS…

At Tell-It-To-The-World Marketing, we support talented authors, as well as successful business owners in their marketing, by marrying social media, with more traditional approaches.

Services…

Featured blog posts

Social Media advertising such as…Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn

E-mail-out…

Outreach and Networking Services…

Facebook page Admin Assistance.

MY HOBBIES…

My hobbies include reading, music, and standup comedy. I also like nature walks, light hiking, tent camping, and fishing. No, I am not afraid to bait a hook.

Music I enjoy

My favorite types of music are classic rock, rhythm and blues, and classic country, as well as some present-day country music. I also like meditation music.

My favorite books and authors

I enjoy fantasy, science fiction, and books about the supernatural. I love books by Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and many more. My favorite books include; Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series, and J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.

MY SPIRITUAL FAITH…

I am a spiritual walker. I claim no faith, either Christian or pagan. I simply know that there is God and Goddess, or Mother Father God, as some call her/him. I lean toward the natural approach, or Druidism (Druidry), as it promotes harmony and respect for all beings, including the environment. I am also interested in herbs and their healing properties.

What’s That Smell? #TMI Tuesday

Don’t judge a blog post by its cover. I doubt you’ll need to hold your nose while reading most of these questions and my answers. Enjoy!

***

What is the last song you sang?

 

I perform songs here regularly as part of my Musical Monday feature. The last song I sang was “In the Garden.”

What place are you longing to visit?

 

I’d love to go back to Jupiter, Florida, to see my brother and his family. We always have a great time together. Maybe when this pandemic is over…

Tell us about the last time you were insulted?

 

A fellow blogger once told me I needed to be more creative. Well, I’m using my imagination to the best of my ability, and we are all creative in our own way. What’s creative to one person may not be as creative to another. I’m trying to develop a thick skin and not let such implications bother me, but it isn’t easy.

When was the last time you hung out with anyone not in your immediate household? What did you do?

 

I sang. I perform with a women’s choral group. For the first couple months of the pandemic, we didn’t practice at all, though we met a few times to visit via conference call. Then, at the end of May, in a peak of ingenuity, our director invited us to her home, where we practiced in her driveway. For the next few weeks, since it was warmer, we practiced on her patio, which was shaded. Then, one windy evening, she moved her car out of her garage, and we became a garage band, consisting of a keyboard and at least ten voices. I think that’s how we’ll stay for the rest of the summer.

 

Fill in the blank: I spend a lot of hours ________

 

 

Writing. When I’m not doing that, I’m participating in water exercise classes, reading books and magazines, and listening to podcasts and the occasional radio program.

Bonus: Which is worse–smelly feet or smelly breath?

 

They’re both bad, but what’s worse is the stench of fecal matter. During the six years I cared for my late husband, I dealt with plenty of that, and you can read more in My Ideal Partner: How I Met, Married, and Cared for the Man I Loved Despite Debilitating Odds.
