Art Inspires Words Book 4 What happens when a painting meets the blank page? Writers take inspiration from their experiences and those of others. They also harvest the colors, tastes, smells, tactile stimulus, and sounds around them, and the world in which they reside or wish they could to write their tales. Henry David Thoreau wrote, “This world is but a canvas to our imagination.” For this anthology collection, Art Inspires Words, we literally gave the writers a painted canvas to spark their creativity. The only limitation set on each author was that the famous painting he/she selected must be the muse for the story. That’s how the stories you are about to read were created. Art inspired more art, this time in the form of words. Relax in your most comfortable space and enjoy. http://mybook.to/Artinspiresbk4

Talk to ya soon? (Or not). You'll laugh out loud at these dating disasters! Pre-order today: http://mybook.to/TTYS TTYS? People say, “I’m never going on a blind date, again!” “Why?” We ask. “Don’t get me started,” they say. Then they start: “He wore coveralls to dinner at a fancy restaurant.” “He ordered five courses of the most expensive food, plus drinks, and expected me to pick up the tab.” “He thought a burger and a bag of fries was enough to get into my pants. Not!” “She’s one-foot taller and didn’t want my face in her boobs while we danced. Where else was I supposed to put my tongue?” “He talked about his ex-lovers, but didn’t ask me about my dead ones.” “The lady didn’t say a dozen words. My dog’s better company. And what a dog she was.” “He proposed because he’ll be deported next week unless he gets a wife by Friday.” “She wore her prison clothes. She just got out of the ‘joint’ and didn’t have time to shop.” “He wanted to borrow my credit card for ‘just a few days.’” “She wants to be a ‘trophy wife.’ Some trophy—I’d have to hide her in a closet.” Blind date fiascos like these will pale in comparison to what Crazy Ink authors have shared in this zany collection of blind dates gone horribly wrong...
