Rita Lewis, Georgia Prosecuting Attorney in Butts County releases new Book "Excuse Me Your Honor"
"Sometimes you just have to laugh," explains Author and Prosecuting Attorney Rita Lewis. The truth that she deals with everyday is not a laughing matter. But as these events are seen for what they are - senseless acts - it become oddly humourous.
Ms. Lewis documented these stories for years. "I used to tell these stories to other attorneys, and they would share their stories with me. "You can't make this stuff up, you know, " she explains. I was encouraged to publish after I received such rousing applause when I read some sections of the work at an OPEN MIKE event at Generations Gallery Writing Conference in The Village at Indian Springs. Since then I have rewritten and fine tuned the stories many times. "It is finally a book, and I am an author by accident, not plan," the busy attorney wrote her publisher, Kathy Socha at Phase One Design Services Inc.
The book will debut at a Reception at Generations Gallery on October 31st from 1:00 to 3:00. The public is invited. Rita will be signing books and will give a short presentation to the Writers Group that afternoon. To order books, call 1-800-352-7212 or stop by the Gallery on weekends or mail your orders to Generations Gallery 1825 Highway 42 South, Indian Springs, Georgia 30216. The cost of each book is $18.50.
