I haven’t talked about my novel in months. Because, HELLO? New bright, shiny objects obliterate old, tired tomes. Promoting Not Without My Father is all-consuming. The first ninety days of a book are make-or-break.
So why am I wasting an entry to mention To Live Forever: An Afterlife Journey of Meriwether Lewis? My sad, lonely little novel virtually nobody is reading?
I got this e-mail message.
I have just read an article from a small locally published magazine,Validity, promoting your work and efforts to keep Meriwether Lewis alive in new adventures. This is an extremely intriguing idea.
Because I am a first cousin, 5 generations removed to Meriwether as my 3rd GGrandmother was Jane Meriwether Lewis, Meriwether’s 1st cousin, I have heard all of the stories multiple times with the unfortunate non-resolution regarding his death circumstances. Of course, the Lewis family has for years tried to have the death issue resolved with roadblocks put up in many pathways.
I want to thank you again for having the foresight and fortitude in producing this fresh adventure and keeping him in our memories.
Good luck and I look forward to a great read!
I still don’t know
how to convince people
to read my novel.
and mostly fail.
But give me one message.
One person who cares.
And I’m ready to go to the mat and try again.
What are you reading?
Explorer Meriwether Lewis has been stuck in Nowhere since his mysterious death nearly two centuries ago. His last hope for redemption is helping nine-year-old Emmaline Cagney flee her madame mother in New Orleans and find her father in Nashville. To get there, Merry must cross his own grave along the Natchez Trace, where he duels the corrupt Judge, an old foe who has his own despicable plans for Em.
