Just a little background on Tough Luck Lane, the novel: Tough Luck Lane was born from a short story developed for a writer's group back in 2003. It grew from there... and grew... and grew... Before I knew it, I had a full-blown novel on my hands! OMG~! I'd never written a novel before!
Tons of non-fic magazine articles, newscasts, short stories and snippets of this 'n' that were the bulk of my writing - I was always one to capture a good quote in the little spiral bound notebook or mini composition book I cart around with me. Damned if I can dig a pen out of the bottom of my pockabook, though.
So here is Tough Luck Lane: a story about bartender Stacey Jennifer Longacre who leaves her hard-bit existence in Lake Okeechobee with The Mir, her beloved 1987 T-Bird (born the same year as it's namesake, the Russian Space Station), to seek fortune and adventure elsewhere.
