Blurb:

This book is a collection of stories about some of Kaye’s first-time experiences with life’s most natural events. Told through the intimate conversational writing we’ve come to know from this author, poignant personal steppingstones to learning moments are revealed. She encompasses the heart of each matter with sincerity and sprinkled inflections of humor.

From first kiss to first car to walking in the desert with four-inch heels, Kaye’s short coming-of-age stories take us through her awakenings and important moments of growth, often without warning.  Some good and some not, life lessons are learned through trial and error, winging it, and navigating by the seat of her pants.

Editorial:

D.G. Kaye writes with heartfelt regard and unabashed honesty. The life experiences she shares in Fifteen First Times evoke tears as well as laughter. Kaye’s candor and compassion will no doubt appeal to and help many seeking to grow and come into their own. I highly recommend this book and all others by this forthright author. The reader will be left with an ardent desire for more. ~ Author, Tina Frisco

These short stories are a reminiscing back to some of the firsts in my life. They are moments that left an imprint and propelled me forward through life. Nothing that happens to us is insignificant – everything that happens is for a reason or for teaching us something to take forward with us.

I finished writing this book almost three years ago. When it was ready for edits, I left it to marinate since it was late 2019 and I was getting ready for my winter escape with my husband in early 2020. By the time we returned in mid-March, Covid lockdowns began and so did my husband’s deterioration of his health. The book was the furthest from my mind, as I had no head for edits and publishing. The year got worse as it progressed, and I lost my husband early spring of 2021. Needless to say, I was in no state of mind for publishing. I pushed myself to get back to it this past summer, along with many other projects I’d left on hold. And I kept my promise to myself that I’d publish this book before 2022 came to an end. Mission accomplished.

      1. Wow, go figure on my book release day! I did notice yesterday Amazon has been busy changing up things – like our author pages, even author central has changed. I don’t like it. ❤

      2. It appears to be EVERY ebook via Amazon UK. I even tried a Dean Koontz. My own books are the same. Not happy. Still same issue this morning. I’ve reported it. So frustrating. Hugs 💖

      3. So what is happening? Are they not showing the ‘buy’ button? How infuriating! I did notice that they have changed the Amazon author page yesterday. I don’t like the new look. Sally told me she hasn’t noticed the change yet in UK? ❤

  1. Congratulations, Debby! With your new release and for making your publishing deadline before the end of the year.

    “… life lessons are learned through trial and error, winging it, and navigating by the seat of her pants.” We sure have that in common.
