The Beach House

We are thrilled to be the exclusive retailer for the new release from Cat & Mouse Press, The Beach House.

The Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Competition challenged writers to create stories with local settings. Unlike a serious literary collection, The Beach House contains “beach reads,” stories that can be read in short bursts while relaxing on the beach, in a porch rocker, or next to a fishing pole. Characters range from a jilted bride and a NASCAR driver with a secret to an elderly outlaw and a flapper-era ghost.

Included in the book are the contest’s first place winner, “Summer of Your Discontent,” by Sarah Barnett; second place winner, “Why You Trashed Vera Wang,” by Nancy Powichroski Sherman (who has two stories in the book); and third place winner, “Refuge,” by Renay Regardie. Other authors with stories in the book include Emily Genshaw, Ellen Collins, Tiffany A. Schultz, Deb Griffin, Heather Lynne Davis, J.L. Epler, Mark Mobley, Nancy H. Linton, Dawn Kackley, Bob Ackerman, Beth Langston Bishop, Cathy Heller, Ellen McCathran, Dennis Lawson, Tom Ingram, Margaret Farrell Kirby, and Joseph L. Crossen. The Beach House also includes two bonus stories from popular local writers Rich Barnett and Fay Jacobs, who served as judges for the competition.

Readers will be able to vote for their top three favorite stories in it and in the process enter a contest to win $250 in cash. A drawing will be held Sept. 1, 2014, to choose the winner. The authors of the top three most popular stories, as voted by the readers, will win Browseabout Books gift certificates of $100, $75, and $50.
