Radio Days

Well, I haven’t been able to do much blogging, and I have a lot of ideas I want to explore. Which makes me frustrated. But I have been busy getting my short story collection, “Radio Days” off the ground. It took a lot of organization and detail work, which is not my forte. Neither is self promotion. A couple of people have asked me about my book sales and I’ve looked at them with horror. Book sales? OMG!

I do feel good about myself that I followed through on this. When you’re young, you feel you have so much time to accomplish all you want. And then 70 hits you in the face. My motto has become, “Do it now. While you still have a chance.” Tick tock.

So here’s my book. You can order it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Also go to my author website at cyndymuscatelauthor.com to watch the book trailer and learn more.

Here’s a little blurb on the book:

 

Conflict and character are the basic ingredients of a story well told—and Radio Days is brimming with twenty-three such stories. Spanning decades, the stories in this thoughtful collection follow very different characters: the rich and the poor; the young and the old. Many are on a hero’s journey along a path to self-knowledge. Others never face reality.

And from the early part of the twentieth century until today, the radio has played in the background of our lives—just as it does in each of these tales. In “My Father’s Story,” set in rural 1924 America, Sidney, the son of immigrants, tries to stop his father from burning down the family store. “Khrushchev In My Dreams” centers on a teenager’s fear of annihilation during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. “Eruption” recounts a family’s urgent journey to survive the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption. And “Confessions of the Hot Flash Queen” follows a twenty-first century woman coming into her own with humor and strength.
