Top 10 Patriotic Reasons to buy Ruthy's new book AND delightful and amazing Giveaways...
The Top Ten Patriotic Reasons for Buying Waiting Out the Storm, Ruthy’s newest 4 ½ Star novel:
#10.: The economy needs all the help it can get.
#9.: Seriously, it’s not like you need a bank loan or something and I need new shoes. Two pair, minimum.
#8.: A tree has already been surrendered to the pulping machine. Should that sacrifice go unpurchased and unsung? I submit that it cannot.
Notice how cute Bethy looks in the scarves.
The first one is a genuine all-seasons navy blue and pink scarf from a street vendor in the financial district of the Big Apple. She looked honest enough and her gun was well-oiled. What more could I ask?
The second scarf is more summer-season, so if you choose that one do not let me see you wearing it mid-winter. Uh, uh. I don’t make the rules of fashion but I don’t break them, either. Geez, Louise. My son said the scarf was probably hot but I felt it and it didn’t feel any hotter than the other one. (ha ha. Get it? HOT???)
Winner gets choice of one or the other and don’t be tryin’ any of those sob stories on me about how you can’t decide. Seriously. It's only fitting and proper that I get to keep ONE of them since I went all the way to New York City to buy them, right?
Of course right!!!! (Don't ya' just love Fiddler on the Roof????)
Back to Pride in America reasoning and just so you know, the answer is YES... I DO always make it a point to watch Independence Day during the first week of July, I consider it my American duty...
I make sure I watch the movie version of 1776 starring William Daniels as John Adams and Ken Howard as Thomas Jefferson... I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that musical and I always feel a little more devoted by the time it's done and I realize once again what people were willing to do and to risk for my right to be free... Freakin' amazing if you ask me....:
#7.: Because we have pride in America and American authors and because Ruthy’s tattoo says: Made in America, and you can’t get much more patriotic than that. (It really says “Erin go bragh!” but you’ll never see it so you won’t really know for sure. I’m sneaky that way.
#6.: Because American authors shouldn’t have to shop from street vendors who may or may not be carrying stolen goods. And weapons.
#5.: Because Ruthy writes total motherhood and apple pie stories, she writes heartland with a heart, she makes you want to visit the North Country, NAY, her books make you want to relocate to the North Country with all your friends and take up snowmobiling and ice hockey.
#4.: I really need four more reasons? Whoa this is harder than I thought.
#3.: Because sheep produce lamb, mutton and woolen products, all valuable commodities from the farmer’s point of view and helping farmers helps America.
#2.: Because it’s got a great cover with a little kid, a puppy and some sheep, Americana at its best.
And the #1 patriotic reason you should buy “Waiting Out the Storm” is:
Because it’s a delightful romance that leaves you feeling good about everything and anything and makes you want to be a better person even if you’re already a really good person, because Ruthy books are habit forming but not illegal and should and could be paired with legally addictive stimulants like the caffeine found in fine coffee shops everywhere. And coffee is loaded with anti-oxidants to thwart mind-numbing disease.
