Delaware Today is blessed to have a few really fine writers who make regular contributions. So I can think of no better way to boast about them than to recommend a few of their works for your summer reading lists. Without further ado…
The ability to write humor is a rare thing, indeed, so I am ever in debt to funny man Reid Champagne for sending us off with a chuckle every month. If you’re a fan, or a golfer, you will most definitely want to check out his essay “The Six Stages of Golf Grief” in “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Golf Book,” which hit bookstores in April. It’s as funny as anything Reid has ever written.
Bob Yearick is not only a top-notch reporter and editor, he’s also a fine writer of fiction. His “Sawyer” explores what happens when a pro football player runs up against corruption in sports, family issues and a lady reporter who turns out to be something more. Summer does mean the start of football season, so the time to read couldn’t be better. Find “Sawyer” at amazon.com or bayoakpublishers.com.
Delawaretoday.com blogger and glam girl JoJami Tyler knows her way around fashion and style. Brides-to-be and their mothers may want to take a look at her recent “Tweak Your Chic: Mother of the Bride,” which contains, in words and full-color photography, everything a mother needs to look perfect on her daughter’s wedding day. Find it at fabulousafter40.com.
I, for one, have been intrigued by the title, “Immaculate Deception,” for far too long. Now the suspense is about to end—or is it just beginning?—as Dickinson High alum Scott Pruden prepares to deliver his first full-length novel. What’s it all about? There are too many quirky details to explain, so I’m forced to plagiarize Scott’s Facebook page:
“Jon Templeton has three days to save the universe, reunite with his wife and return from the dead. It’s going to be a busy weekend.” Somehow that involves Rastafarian surfers, sex cults and defense contractors. What could be a better beach read? For more, see www.myspace.com/scottpruden.
My thanks to Scott, JoJami, Bob, Reid and all the DT family of writers for making the mag look good month after month. Enjoy.
