After a darling half-year of working with the illustrious Susan P. Robbins, we are delighted to announce the release of her book, "Nothing but the Weather" today, August 15, 2014.
Here is our "trailer" blurb for the short story collection:
Wake up in a storm. Row down a flooded alley of people looking for their way home. "Nothing but the Weather" wades through the water, both clean and dirty, digging up life without cleaning it off first. The collection introduces you to a grandmother who reads magazines at the grief counselor's office because her doting son wants her to adjust to life again. You will rub shoulders with a bipolar Lynn who has half-started just about every career. Mingle with an array of family units that hold secrets, lies and even love from one another.
Set to be a best-seller on Unsolicited Press's list, Robbins sells you characters that could walk off the page and slap you in the face.
