It has been a while; did you miss my blog posts? Well, my cause was just.
I had asked a handful of volunteers to read THE ROMANTIC IMPERATIVE and write testimonials to be inserted in the front part of the novel. After four months during which these people had other obligations, they came through for me. I believe they knew how important they were for any writer. I immediately sent the novel with the testimonials to my formatter for publication in Amazon e-readers. She will start the formatting process by May 15. Later, I will consider paperbacks.
Here are the six testimonials:
- Arlene Germann, Retired English Teacher
- Bonnie Sanabrais
- Andrea Tabor
- Lisa Sandoval
- Linda Allison, Fiction Writer
- Alma Herman
(Yes, the six invaluable testimonials for the novel!)
I’m sure that these special people are reading this blog. I want them and you to know how the novel germanated. I was looking at a wall of postcards of great paintings in the gift shop of the Metropolitan Museum in New York. I spotted this Manet postcard and immediately said to myself, I know these people, this mother and son; I can write a novel about them. And so I began.
Manet, Édouard |mäˈnā| (1832–83), French painter. He adopted a realist approach that greatly influenced the impressionists, using pure color to give a direct unsentimental effect. Notable works: Déjeuner sur l'herbe (1863), Olympia (1865), and A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (1882).
In my next blog, I will tell you about my newest novel. I wrote it so fast that I thought a tsunami rushed over me and carried me along. The novel almost wrote itself. TAMMA MILLERMAN’S INHERITANCE.
Blogging to you all very very soon.
