Good News for Sure

PublisherI am pleased to tell you that I received a contract offer for On Wings of the Morning from eLectio Press in Missouri this past week. If all goes well, the book will appear in late October (just in time for holiday gift-giving). I talked with the CEO for about half an hour, and I’m impressed with him and his company.

It has been a long haul. I appreciate all the interest in the long process on the part of my friends. A special thank-you to my beta readers, who spotted errors and made excellent suggestions for the story. And a big thank you to my writing friends in Write by the Rails, who supported and encouraged me throughout. (You know who you are.) My family has been incredibly supportive, although our daughters think the novel would be improved by vampires or zombies. Or bother.

It’s a new day, and I look forward to what is yet to come.


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.

    Great news Dan, I hope you will autograph a copy for me. Jim’s Dad is coming to Charleston next weekend to meet with remaining crew members from the San Juan – his ship during WWII. We are excited for him to be honored in a small way for his service to his country at a very young age.
