Something to SEA: Tomorrow Is Day 1 of 31 Days of Summer Lovin’ 2016

Hello, friends!

Just a reminder that you can join me in celebrating my most favorite time of the year by participating in 31 Days of Summer Lovin’ 2016!

For every day in July beginning with July 1, there is a one-word prompt relating to summer.  How you respond to that prompt is up to you, either through your words or your pictures. The goal is for you to slow down, and on each day, focus on one glorious aspect of summer. As a result, you will hopefully have a renewed appreciation for the little things that summer brings our way, as well as 31 days of fond memories to look back upon.

Here are some ways you can participate:

I’m looking forward to loving the Summer of 2016 along with you!

Something to SEA: My Published Works and a FREE Giveaway!

As you know, I love living at the Jersey Shore, and I love writing.  I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to contribute to a local publication, where I get to write about all things Jersey Shore, as well as meet some pretty interesting people.

I am very excited to share the digital edition of Jersey Shore Magazine’s Spring 2016 issue, which you can access by clicking anywhere in this line. I wrote 5 articles that appear in the issue:  “A Voice for the Sharks” (p. 10-11), “The Monmouth University Polling Institute” (p. 12-13), “Cattus Island County Park Redux” (p. 14-15), “Meridian Health-Taking Care of the Jersey Shore” (p. 66-74) and “Jersey Shore Foodie: Rod’s is Celebrating 35 Years of Success at the Jersey Shore” (p. 91-92).  I also provided compilation and editorial work on the various directories contained in the issue, including Theater & Concert, Farmer’s Markets, Calendar of Events, Area Towns and Tourism Information.

To celebrate finding my voice and seeing my words in print, one lucky person who comments on this post about what you love about writing or what you love about the area where you live will win a printed copy of my book “Escape: Lessons from the Sea” as well as a brand new black Moleskin notebook.  Comments must be posted before 5:00 pm on Sunday 3/20/2016, and the winner will be announced on Monday 3/21/2016.

As always, I thank you for your continued support!  I look forward to reading your comments!
