Friday Funnies: Summertime is Fun Time!

Hello My Happy People,

It seems like the news lately is just getting more and more depressing. We here at Burckhardt Books are very politically active in our personal lives, but we want to keep our business pages as an oasis where people can come and find an escape from the real world in our fiction and on our social media while we fight the good fight in the real world.

We want to spread happiness and joy and what better way to do that than with some great Dad Jokes! This blog is not going to have a lot of my usual blathering because I am very hard at work to bring you some great new entertainment. I am working on finishing the final book in my Into the West Saga Serial, part 7, Into the West: Family Ties. Plus, I have been scheduling some amazing guest interviews for our Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt podcast.

I went to journalism school, worked at different publications, and also worked for a big chain bookseller for more than 13 years. Because of these experiences, I had the privilege of becoming friends with some pretty amazing people who either already had or have gone on to build careers in writing, publishing, library history and sciences, and now I am hitting them all up to be guests on our podcast so all of you can get to know them and their work too!

July Author Interview

DJ Jamison

Romance Author

I had the pleasure of catching up with my college friend, DJ Jamison, yesterday and you get to hear it all in our next few podcasts.

DJ shares how she transitioned from being an editor in newspapers to having a successful career as a self-published MM romance author.

During our conversation, DJ reads from one of her books which happens to be part of a free promotional giveaway until the end of the year. Be sure to join us in the next Book Banter with Dianne Burckhardt so you do not miss out.

But for now .... on with the jokes!

Have a great weekend everyone. Go forth and be happy!
