I have decided that I will set a pre-order date for book #2, “Colin Garrison” sometime in December of this year. I know it has been a long wait for the readers who have asked me when book 2 will be published. My reason for this, is that “Mamie Garrison”, book 1 of the series, ending up with a number of grammatical errors and typos.
My readers have been very generous in overlooking that fact, and I am more grateful than I can adequately express. I did have an editor for the first book, and was careful to follow her corrections. Whether it was errors on my part or something in the download that went wrong, I will never know.
With the second book, I have determined to take my time, be cautious, and review everything more than once or twice. I hired a new editor this time and will be slowly working on her suggestions over the next month or so. I want to be sure the same situation as with book one doesn’t repeat itself.
I don’t have an exact date in December yet, but possibly the 15th, which is when Mamie was published two years ago.
I do plan at some future date to do a revised version of Mamie with everything corrected, but no new content.
Thank you for indulging me in this lengthy explanation. I will be promoting my pre-sale for book 2 very soon.
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 am 59 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.
