cj Sez: Everyone from Mobile, Alabama, has a Mardi Gras story, reads the Amazon blurb for the Mobile Writers Guild anthology MARDI GRAS PIECES.
“Thanks for getting us thrown out of New Orleans.” Joy’s eyes flamed at her brother Ed as he drove through the now-quiet streets of the French Quarter.
So begins “The Lost Cause Minstrels,” the first story in the anthology and part of the legacy of wonderful writing by inspired writer and lovely friend, Fran Driscoll.
Readers, the Minstrels must have behaved pretty badly to get thrown out of the South’s partying-est party city, and you’ll soon have a chance to find out the reason for their embarrassing ouster...for free.
On Saturday, Feb 5, around 5 p.m. on my Facebook author page ( https://www.facebook.com/CjPettersonAuthor ), I’ll give away a Kindle copy of MARDI GRAS PIECES to some lucky visitor to Lyrical Pens.
For a chance to win, read, and experience a little bit of Mobile’s Mardi Gras tradition, tell me if you’ve ever eaten a Moonpie or if you even know what one is. A simple “yes” or “no” will get it done.
If you shouldn’t happen to win the free copy, you can still buy it here: https://amzn.to/3IuTYkM on sale for $1.99 at the time of this post.
