Donna Runeric


"Tripping Over Akron" is my first published work on Smashwords and worth every penny of its asking price--whatever you wanna pay.. The book will make you laugh, make you cry, make you want to find my daughter's father and punch him in the eye.

Fortunately for me, I don't care who knows my business. I'm afraid some of my relatives may not feel that way, but they refuse to support my lavish lifestyle. I'm hoping Warren Buffet will decide he can't live without my book and decide it's worth the value of my student loan payoff.. Never know until you ask, right?

My cover is my own design, as are some of the pictures in the book. I used to be an art major a long time ago and have many writing and art projects in the works. I've received over 10,000 views of my short works on HubPages if you care to visit: or feel free to contact me at

My readers, so far, are truly in love with my book. I know who some of my readers are, but we're not told who downloads, so if you're someone who can help me in this publishing game, please email me. My lifestyle isn't really lavish--far from it. But I don't want to make you cry so I'll keep the details to myself.
