Do you dream in color?

I've said it before, nobody pays me to say nice things about their products. Therefore, if I talk about something here, it's from the heart.

My friend, Sarah J. Bradley, is celebrating the release of her first novel, 'Dream in Color'. Through the miracle of the Internet, I just finished listening to her on Milwaukee radio, despite being 1300 miles away in Florida, and I can't express how happy I am about this book.

I met Sarah in a writer's workshop sponsored by the Waukesha Parks & Recreation department 13 or 14 years ago. She's insightful, intelligent and funny, and I've always enjoyed reading her work. She also has a borderline unhealthy obsession with Rick Springfield, but we mock forgive her for that.

When she started work on 'Dream...' six years ago, it felt good. It felt right, that Sarah found the perfect outlet for her voice and had truly built on the education she gained from her first and as-yet-unpublished novel. You can check out an excerpt at her publisher's site, Wild Rose Press. The book can be purchased there, or from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. She informs me that the book will be available for electronic download in the very near future if that's your preference, as is mine normally. This one, I want to make sure I get it signed. Make sure you check out her daily blog, too. She's got a lot of insight for writers and a great sense of humor for everyone else.

Just don't let her talk you into harassing me about my as-yet unfinished books. That wouldn't be very nice.

Don't worry. I'm the last person who should be harassing anyone about unfinished books...

Elliott! Thank you! You know, I treasure our friendship without you saying such nice things about me, but...well, a girl likes to hear nice things about herself! LOL!

And now it's your turn! Ahem! LOL! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!)

Sarah, you wouldn't be you if you didn't say something.

And though I never ask for compensation for endorsements, if you sell the 10 million copies B&B expect you to, I wouldn't balk at a Cadillac...

Congrats Sarah!

By the way, I have a friend in Waukesha (she formerly lived in Mukwanago. I just like saying that name). Small, small world.

Be nice and share!
