Time For Shelly.

Announcing, TIME ON HER SIDE, by Shelly Arkon.  
TIME ON HER SIDE  

The Blurb

They say God gives second chances. 
Forty years have shown Wilhelmina has nothing but a lifetime of four failed marriages, a job she hates, and her most recent affair with a married businessman. Until one day, while sipping coffee her silent prayers are answered--she’s visited by her future self, offering Wilhelmina a chance to re-do her life, giving her a mission to save the future world from the baby she’s unknowingly pregnant with. Is it the miracle she hoped for, or will this lead into a whole new set of problems? 

Shelly's Bio.

When Shelly isn't doing the laundry, cleaning, cooking, chasing grandkids, listening to daughter drama (five of them), or lopping heads of hair at the salon, she's writing beside her two fur-peeps, Sir Poops and Hair Ball, popping an occasional chocolate while her hubby is flipping through TV channels.

She lives in New Port Richey with her husband and two dogs. She's also a member of Florida Writer's Association and Writer's of Mass Distraction. 

Shelly Arkon is the author of, Secondhand Shoes

Find, Time on Her Side, on Amazon - free November 1-5. 

You can discover her blog here : Secondhand Shoes, A Novel

You can check out her adorable dogs here : Two Fur-Peeps and A Writer

All the very best with this, Shelly.  Apologies for being a day late.

  1. A re-do life. How fun! But will it be one of those worse than the first outcomes? :)

    1. Hi River,

      My human also gets exhausted reading all Shelly noted in her sentence. That's why he has me take over his blog because he cannot keep up like I do.

      Delighted you love the new header of ME! :)
