Book Launch at Pacific Grove November 10th

A Miracle Under the Christmas Tree, Harlequin’s 2012 anthology has my story, “Enough Time for Christmas” in it.
Jennifer Basye Sander, the editor/author gathered the contributors to celebrate at The Works Book Store. Jordan Bernal, The Keepers of Eire, and Julie Royce, Pilz, joined me in the two and a half hour drive there and back. The book signing kept my pen busy, and we enjoyed meeting the other writers whose stories were in the anthology. Most of us read excerpts of our writings with the aroma of fresh coffee, lattes, and teas that filled the room.
Thank you to Jennifer for creating the anthology and for our celebration. Thank you to Jordan and Julie for great company.

Dangling Modifiers

Monica Wood in The Pocket Muse, gives examples of sentences with dangling  modifiers that show amusing results.

“Mary admired the dress I bought for her in a department store with puffed sleeves.” The store had puffed sleeves?

“Sidetracked by the phone call, the stew boiled over and Ella blamed her chatty mother.”  The phone call sidetracked the stew?

People in my writing classes, here’s some more homework. Rewrite the above examples without the dangling modifiers. Hand them in on November 26th and 27th.
