Our Front Porch

The other day I was thinking about our front porch in Montague, Michigan. Growing up it was used as a gathering place where people were welcomed, listened to, encouraged to share, and I believe, felt loved. I never really understood the significance of all of this until mom and dad were gone, and I could no longer sit on that front porch.

Support My Kindle Scout Campaign


I need your help!

 

I am participating in a reader-powered process for a publishing contract through Amazon for my novel, "Surviving Stephen."

Here's how it works: Readers browse book campaigns by authors and nominate books that they think deserve a publishing contract with Kindle Press. Amazon takes note of which books readers want and awards contracts accordingly.

A Special Book

Our library in Montague, MI was above the firehouse.  I was happy to know I could go there and check out fun books to read. We didn’t have a television so our activities were simple. Reading became an important part of our lives.

One day my father said he had a surprise for me. “I want to show you something, Adele. I’m going to take you to a place where there are many books! We’re going to go to Grossman’s.” (Grossman’s was a very popular department store in Muskegon, MI).

Tomato Festival

Picture
July 28, 29, & 30 2017 Hours: Friday 28 noon to 8pm Saturday 29 9am to 6pm Sunday 30 noon to 5pm ​Grainger County Tomato Festival ​7480 Rutledge Pike Rutledge Tn 37861

Painting by Wendy Leedy

The Grainger County Tomato Festival promotes agricultural products and the many local artists, authors, talent, and craftsmen in the area. There will be special events and musical groups, like the Charlie Daniels' Band. This FREE festival has been named by Parade magazine as one of the top ten festivals in the USA.   Several members of our Authors Guild of Tennessee will be at the Festival, including Gale Frances, with her gripping true story of saving an abandoned baby and reuniting with her decades later, and Cheryl Peyton, with her cozy-style travel mystery series. Several other authors, including Sam Venable, will be selling and signing books inside the air-conditioned Rutledge Elementary School on the premises.

Ten, Nine, Eight...


The official launch date is tomorrow, July 21, for DAY OF THE DARK: Stories of Eclipse. Why July 21st? Because it's exactly one month before the total solar eclipse, the first one in North America since 1918. The last one across the continent was in 1900. To star-gazers (and sun-gazers, but don't actually gaze at the sun, OK?) this is big deal.

So big that I was able to collect 24 excellent eclipse-themed stories for the anthology, some from multi-prize winning authors. And Wildside Press was willing to rush it to publication before the event.

We're having an actual launch party online 9 to 9 EDT at https://www.facebook.com/events/199463997250907/

No matter when you look in, one of more of us should be manning the rocket ship, so go over to the launch pad and tell us you'll be there, then come on in tomorrow! We'd love to chat with you about the stories, the eclipse, our favorite ice creams, whatever.

Login Change on Site

Cheryll, Kaye and I have decided to make a change to the login. After login in you will no longer be redirected to My Blog Page. It has come to our attention that when you are not logged in the link your pressed disappeared. We hope that this will correct the issue, if not let Abraham know to find a good solution for all.

Have a great weekend and keep COOL!

My Home in Montague, MI – A Very Special Place

On Saturday or Sunday afternoons my father would often want to take a little ride.  We would pile in the car and off we would go to places unknown.  I say unknown because it was always my father’s desire to find a two-track road that we had never been on before.  Our 1935 Ford would take us through the very bumpy dirt roads, the winding roads and sometimes to dead-end roads.  When dad came upon an old vacated house he would stop and we would take the tour. As we were walking through these old homes, I can still remember my dad saying, “If only these walls could talk.  Wouldn’t they tell a story?”

The Letter

My brother Jim joined the Air Force in 1955 with two of his high school friends.  Jim was called upon to study and complete a course in Serbo-Croatian language at the University of Indiana in Bloomington, Indiana. As he could not explain what his mission was to be, we had no idea what he was doing or the danger that it entailed.

Separately. All space available was for an individual author. You had to submit an application with the Tomato Festival organizers with your fee in April, I think. Sorry you didn't hear about it. We'll try to publicize it better next year.
