Sweet Success for Sandi Hoover and Jim Tritten

By: Darby Karchut

Another award for a powerhouse of a writing team! Let’s hear it for Sandi Hoover and Jim Tritten, who recently won a Gold Medal from the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA) for their romance novella LOVE AND LIES: CALL ME EVE (January 2021, RhetAskew Publishing)

Love & Lies - Call Me Eve

ABOUT THE BOOK

She sipped her well-chilled, dry martini, taking extra time before answering. “What . . . how much do I tell him? Just want a distraction. Something to fill an evening.”

Eve was sipping a Fiji Moonrise, the house specialty at Fiji’s Natewu Bay Resort’s water’s edge bar, when an unfamiliar baritone asked, “May I buy you a refill? The evening is far too pleasant to spend alone.” Mark Adams proves to be an irresistible diversion during Eve’s trip home from a conference. But when playtime’s up and planes are departing, Eve doesn’t play fair.

Upon her return, Eve receives an unexpected life-changing event and regrets having lied. Mark is faced with a wounded heart and a nearly insurmountable challenge. Join an exciting adventure where true feelings are the catalyst to propel two star-crossed lovers to find each other … again. Copies may be purchased through Amazon.

Sweet Success for Kale!

By: Darby Karchut

CWG KALE

Congratulations to these Pikes Peak Writers members on their various stories appearing in the Corrales Writing Group’s upcoming horror anthology entitled KALE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD: Chris Allen, Maureen Cooke, Sandi Hoover, Jim Tritten, and Patricia Walkow (all members of PPW), contributed to the book. The following individuals also made either written or artistic contributions: Jane Butel (recipe), Sandi Cathcart (recipe), Adrienne Evatt (recipe), Alex Knight (art), Paul Knight (art), Jasmine Tritten (prose and art and also a member of PPW), and Walter Walkow (prose).

ABOUT THE BOOK: Kale has invaded our culture as the go-to food for healthy living, appearing everywhere on restaurant menus, in grocery stores and in beauty products like soaps and scrubs. It’s in salads and sandwiches, on pizzas, in soups and stews, and even salted as chips. For many, it shouts, “Eat me. I’m good for you.” For others, the vitamin load and beneficial fiber cannot outweigh the bitterness and texture of this member of the cabbage family. For those people, kale has ignited a passionate response, often reflected in internet memes and T-shirt slogans. This collection of short stories shows kale in a new light. Some stories present the perspective of those who introduce kale to their spouses and the reaction of those who are so targeted. A couple of tales are horror stories about kale’s effect on a life; another one describes a speculative history of kale; one is a murder mystery where kale plays an unusual role; and one is a fantasy about kale’s rivalry with another popular, competing vegetable, cauliflower. This book also has delicious recipes which feature kale as the primary ingredient. A word of caution, though. One recipe was written by someone with a novel approach to cooking kale.

KALE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD releases September 2020. Pre-orders are now available at Amazon.
