The Beach House
Featuring the winning stories from the Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Competition
What does "beach house" mean to you? Is it a sanctuary, a place to escape? The setting for treasured memories? A spot for wild and crazy escapades? Or is it a playground for romance, mystery, or adventure?
The beach house was these things and more for the 21 writers whose stories were chosen for the first book in the Rehoboth Beach Reads series.
Available starting November 18 at Browseabout Books, Rehoboth Beach, DE
From the author of A Rehoboth ABC, a humorous picture book for adults that captures all that makes Rehoboth Beach special. Residents and visitors alike will chuckle at the traffic jams, tiny dogs, enormous martinis, and French fry ketchup Nazis. Whether you're here for a week, a season, or a lifetime, you know you're in Rehoboth!
From swooping seagulls to frolicking dolphins, the familiar sights and sounds of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware are captured in this charming book, which children will beg to read again and again. The delightful rhyming text is complemented by amusing illustrations of children on the kiddie rides, sipping snow cones, examining jellyfish, and even reluctantly taking a nap.

The contest is open to both beginning and experienced writers. Submissions are rated by a panel of judges and the top-scoring entries are published in a paperback book. Browseabout Books sponsors the contest, which features a $500 first prize. The 2013 contest is now closed, but look for the book containing this year's winners in late 2013.
