All the writing manuals and how-to’s recommend having a website or a blog through which to promote my work. It makes sense, given the times we are in. For gone forever are the Dickens days when one could simple pen something on parchment and send it out to a publisher via carrier pigeon or street urchin. Now, words and ideas are conveyed via invisible waves that float above our heads as we mow the lawn, feed the birds, or walk the dog. And writers must have faith that they are somehow getting to where we mean them to go, so it calls for faith. Hmmmm….there’s that concept of faith again….believing in what we cannot see.
That said, I suppose that I should make a first feeble attempt here to promote myself, something I have never been very good at doing but that is a MUST in today’s dizzyingly fast world of instant reader gratification. And what better place to start than with my latest book published on Amazon Kindle?
It’s not a romance or a thriller. There are no red herrings or cliffhangers. It’s simply the story of how one unnamed woman deals with the news that she has cancer and has only weeks to live. I won’t spoil the view by giving away too much of what goes on during those final weeks. Suffice it to say that it is an invitation to walk with her she experiences the language that the woods speak and comes up against new truths she never anticipated she’d find.
“The Sound Leaves Make” is her soliloquy, the conversation she carries out, not only with all that surrounds her, but with herself as well, as she moves toward the light she’s heard so much about.
