Here's a picture of my dad as a little boy at his Catholic confirmation.
His parents were immigrants from Italy, but my dad refused to learn Italian because he wanted to be "all American." Here's a picture of him as an even smaller boy with his parents and older sister.
Here's my dad (left) grown up with his father.
And here's my dad being a dad, with my brother and sister. (I wasn't born yet.)
Here's a picture of my dad feeding the ducks, just because I remember how he liked to take us to feed the ducks when we were kids, so this picture makes me happy. :-)
Happy Father's Day, Daddy!
Celebrating Fathers in Fiction
I wanted to do something special for Father's Day this year, so I gathered some author friends together and we've put together a Fathers in Fiction giveaway! This is a multi-genre giveaway, so every title may not be in your favorite genre, but there should be something for everyone. Each one of these FREE titles includes a father or father-figure as a major or minor character. In addition, the authors are giving away 8 $10 gift cards ($80 value) to winners' choice to Amazon, B&N, or iTunes.
The Fathers in Fiction giveaway runs through June 25. Click here to check it out and please invite your friends!
