RELEASE DAY BLITZ & GIVEAWAY: Fifty First Times: A New Adult Anthology

It's finally here! Fifty First Times, the new adult anthology, with short stories from authors like Jennifer L. Armentrout, Molly McAdams and Lisa Desrochers, releases today. In honor of the release of this book, I'm going to tell you about one of my "firsts" - my first job.

My First Job

I got my first job when I was only 15 (yeah - it was a little "under the table") working the snack bar at the private pool my family belonged to. It was actually not a bad job, all things considered. Every time it rained, I knew I could stay home and read instead of going to work. I got to eat for free when I worked. (Soft serve and a frozen Snickers for lunch? Yes, please.) And I got to look at guys in board shorts all day long. Not to mention that there was this one boy that I always seemed to work with (I can't, for the life of me, remember his name now - well, it WAS more than 20 years ago), that I had a MAJOR crush on. He was a few years older than me, and we flirted with each other incessantly. Nothing ever came of it, but it was so fun engaging in harmless flirting with a cute boy all summer long. 

I remember that the two most popular items that people bought were lollipops (they were the cheapest thing we offered) and nachos with that neon yellow cheese sauce on the side. Yum. And I also remember that there was this sign by the check-in counter to get into the pool that always cracked me up. It said, "Welcome to our OOL. Notice there is no P in it. Please keep it that way."

So, what was your first job like? What "first" in your life do you think of when you hear the title of this new anthology?
