Sorry. Fiorella is late today. She had to get her act together early this morning and dash off to the local book store to read the sonnet and flash fiction short story she'd contributed to FLASHES OF FEAR, the little book put together by members of the San Gabriel Writers' League (available at Amazon.com?).
Being the first reader, she ended up employing her organizational skills to set up the scene, grabbing the microphone before the show began to hawk the book to the local populace. It meant she ended up with an audience of three--Husband, Friend Mike (awaiting his turn at the mic), and his wife Diane.
But that's better than none.
