Lemons--Cover Reveal-- J. Andersen

Well, today we don't have to welcome anyone new. For a change, I'm posting about my own writing! I know. I know. I should do it more often, but hey, I like to share about other writers too.

But today isn't about other writers. Today I get to share with you my new cover for a short story that will be released on Amazon next week. Be sure to check back on Feb 13th for links to the new release.

Without further delay, allow me to present LEMONS:

I know! I love it too. And it fits perfectly with the story, but you'll have to wait to read it. But until then, how about the BLURB?

They say when life throws you lemons to make lemonade, but when Ally finds herself in the biggest pickle of her life—stranded on an island in the middle of a lake—fruit and veggies are the least of her worries. Now she’ll have to face the harsh realities of her selfish choices, which means dealing with what happened between her parents a few years ago.

And maybe a little EXCERPT:

All those people out there who say, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade,” have apparently never heard of Crystal Light or Kool-Aid or even the Tops brand of powdered lemonade. I mean really, who actually makes lemonade out of real lemons anyway? Not my mother. She’s a powdered lemonade kind of girl all the way. Probably wouldn’t even be able to identify a lemon in the grocery store if it weren’t for the sign right next to the little yellow balls of fruit that says, “Lemons-5/$1.99.”
Anyway, if I knew how to make lemonade out of real lemons, maybe I could get myself out of this pickle I’m in.

There you have it. Thanks for celebrating with me! 


  1. I remember when I first read this for you! I'm glad you're finally publishing it, because it's hilarious! =)

    1. Yepper. It was forever ago that I wrote it. Next week, it'll be out for everyone's criticism. :) Thanks for your work on it, BTW.
