Friday Focus: Off the Mat

It's been said that we all have a book inside us, but getting the book out and published can be a daunting task. When it happens, it deserves celebrating. So I was pleased to pop down to Everyday Joe's on Saturday (my first visit there) to attend local teacher/coach/mentor/author Jeff Bibbey's release party for his novel, Off the Mat. It's hard for me to believe, but my husband and Jeff go back 30 years (we really can't be that old). Jeff's a great guy, and we wish him every success.

A bit about the book (from BookLocker): Devin Thomsen and Steven Matchik seek intensity, and unity of body and spirit. Their demanding coach Sean Cardsen shows the way on the wrestling mat –will it be enough?

Read the rest of the synopsis, an excerpt, and buy a copy here. Also available at Amazon and B&N. Read Nancy Hansford's review from the Coloradoan here.

I had a guess about the faux phone box entry and it was right. I just wasn't sure. Is the entryway new?

This time I am guessing it is Lucille's.

Are we supposed to put our guesses here, I hope I'm not spoiling anything?

I'm not sure if the entryway is new. It looks new to me.

Yes, put your guesses here. I think it's great when someone identifies where I've been! (Mmmm...Lucile's.)
