Time Wasters have a new look!

Didi Oviatt

Thanks Kim Knight for the help in creating beautiful book covers YET AGAIN!  What I would do without is woman is beyond me!  I absolutely love the new look! I came out with this short story series earlier this year, and anyone who knows me is well aware that I just don’t do images lol. Kim is my savior, so talented! If you haven’t read a Time Waster check them out. Super easy reading, Juvenile Humor.

The Time Wasters Series are several compiled short story adventures based on true stories. This book contains the first three in the series. They’re all titled Super Short prelude because they ARE just that – super short stories that lead up to big life concepts or events. Designed to help pass short spouts of time, most of the Time Wasters stories range from 8 to 15 pages. Each mini-book in the series actually…

It was my brilliant idea to share some favorite Instagram pictures. *Cringes* Like many of my ‘brilliant’ ideas, I didn’t think this through, because I frankly have no idea what pictures to highlight. Not having a clue what I’m doing has never stopped me before so here we go …
