I thought I would share with you some quotes I’ve come across recently that I found helpful for me as I trudge through my second book.
Yes, I’m trudging.
There is always a moment for me when I’m writing, that a scene or chapter or book will click into place and all the pieces come together as they should.
I’ve had small clicks and half clicks but I’m waiting on the big click. Lol
In the meantime, I’m reading books that will be useful for research.
My latest is a book called “Passing” and the author’s name escapes me at the moment but it is an older book. I thought it might be helpful as my main character in book #2 of The Garrison Saga is passing for white in 1868 Philadelphia.
And speaking of books, I recently read an older book titled, “The Shadow of the Wind.” Some of you may have read it. I loved the story, but I especially loved the way it was written. The different sections and the points of view. Definitely one of the better ones I have read so far this year.
Hope all is well with everyone.
Thanks for following.
Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and on Kindle Unlimited; also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I have completed book two in my series. Colin Garrison is available for preorder at Amazon.com/dp/B0759MYN81 and will be published on November 30th, 2017. Please see my Colin Garrison page under the menu option for a small sample of this new book. I am 60 and married with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Doestoyefsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
