This occasion calls some celebratory music, so here it is:

I have an exciting announcement! I have a publisher for my book. Thursday afternoon I received a call from a nice lady at Tate Publishing in Oklahoma who said they wanted to publish my book! I She sent a contract via email and I’ ve looked it over decided to sign with them on Monday. It will take several months to produce the book, but we’re on the way! Whoo hoo!

I immediately thought of all the people who encouraged me along the way, teachers and parents and leaders and also more recently some fine writers in Write by the Rails, my “posse,” Nancy Kyme, CIndy Brookshire, Leigh Giza, Katherine Mercurio Gotthardt, and Claudia LeFeve. I was also encouraged by my family and by members of my church family. I want to give a special shout out to the fifteen beta readers–you know who you are! Thank you for believing!

I’ll keep you informed as to the process of the production of the novel! And thank YOU for your support and interest!


About huckfinn47

I taught high school English for 32 years, all at Robinson High School in Fairfax, VA. My students called me "Mr. V," and I was fortunate to have some terrific young people in my classes. I have made contact with some of them, particularly on Facebook, and enjoy seeing what they're up to. My other nickname, given to me by our then assistant pastor Jim Vaught, is Lieutenant Dan, after the Gary Sinise character in Forrest Gump, one of my favorite movies. I never got anywhere near military service, so the name is somewhat ironic. I greatly admire our troops and respect their sacrifices. On the Wings of Morning is my first novel worth talking about.
