This Friday, instead of a short story, we’re very pleased to announce the release of WHAT SCOTLAND TAUGHT ME by Molly Ringle. Molly is just a fantastic writer, and we’re terribly proud that she submitted her book to us. This book had both Contributing Editor Nicole Arbuckle and myself remembering what it is like when you’re nineteen and the decisions you make aren’t necessarily the smartest ones. Molly has a way of writing with humor and wit that reminds us of the drama of youth while keeping it all in perspective. We hope you’ll take the chance to pick up her book – it’s on half price in our store for the next few weeks – only $2.50! Welcome Molly, we’re happy you joined the family.
Feel free to read the first chapter of her book here.
Fresh out of high school, Eva Sonneborn is headed to Scotland with her best friends: scholarly, sarcastic Laurence; gorgeous, ghost-seeing Amber; and responsible, sweet Shannon. They plan to spend the next six months in Edinburgh, enjoying an adventure-filled work-abroad journey before parting ways for college.
But when Eva meets Gil, a local bartender, she figures a little innocent flirting won’t hurt her relationship with Tony, her ever-faithful boyfriend back home. But just when things turn less innocent with Gil, the trip starts throwing curveballs at not only her but her friends too. By the end of the trip, they’ve all fallen in love, sometimes with the wrong people – and with consequences that may tear their friendship apart forever…
