Now that I live in a nursing home, I’ve had to minimize my paraphernalia down to the bare essentials. Shelves and shelves of books, gone. In their place, I have a Nook where I can store as many references as I need. I use most of my space to store books I have written. I went through a grand book giveaway last summer to strip away the excess. However, their numbers have swollen again over the summer. Any takers for Golden Dreams and/or Homefront Dreams? In addition to winners at this blog, check out my blog at http://darlenefranklinwrites.blogspot.com/ and leave a comment mentioning this blog.
I keep an army of pens in my top drawer, my contracts on my computer, mailing envelopes in the box of books. With access to the Internet, I have all that I need! If not all that I want.

About the book – Homefront Dreams:
CLARINDA FINCH HATES CHANGE
As the newly elected mayor of Maple Notch, the war widow must lead her town through the dark days of World War II. But where she finds comfort in tradition, the town council insists on trying new ways of handling the homefront challenges. Her most untraditional opponent? Councilman Ralph Quincy.
High school principal Ralph never expected to become a friend to Clarinda and her family. But as she spars with him over the war effort, the smart, spirited mayor is the most compelling woman he’s ever known. Can they put aside their differences and fight for both their town and a future together?
