MEMOIRS OF A DILETTANTE VOLUME ONE – COVER REVEAL!

Image

This moment, right after you have seen this fabulous cover, is when you should squeek from joy! Why? Because there are memoirs, autobiographies, books, novels, this and that …. then there is Helena!

I am awaiting this book with lots of excitement. Because it rarely happens to me to read something and get an immediate desire to track down the writer and sit on their porch and make them re-tell the whole story to me. Helena, as her book, is unique and mysterious, there is an aroma of aristocratic sassiness lurking out of every sentence. And if you think thats way too much awesomeness to take in, wait ’till you meet Penny. Wait ’till you scour maps and buy tickets to Arkadia. Just wait then reward yourself with this tale. Buy it for a lady, even better, and immerse yourself into the vibrant world of Helena Hann-Basquiat.

e-book cover

COMING SPRING 2014 — official date TBA

Memoirs of a Dilettante is a collection of reminiscences, following Helena Hann-Basquiat, a self-proclaimed dilettante who will try anything just to say that she has, and her twenty-something niece, who she has dubbed the Countess Penelope of Arcadia, in their off-beat antics in such places as common as the local McDonald’s or the comic book store, to their travels to Miami for the search for the perfect Cuban sandwich. Interspersed between wacky one-off adventures, Helena tells personal, sometimes painful stories from her past in order to try and make sense of her life as it has played out, tempering everything with an indomitable sense of humour.

Cummerbund Bandersnatch, the Accidental Plagiarist, strippers, rock stars, geeks, freaks, and the Barista With No Name — these are just a few of the characters you’ll meet inside.

Discover Helena’s tales for the first time or all over again, with new notes and annotations for the culturally impaired — or for those who just need to know what the hell was going through her mind at the time!

If you just can’t wait and you want a taste of Helena’s writing, follow her blog: http://helenahannbasquiat.wordpress.com/
