Subject: Newsletter: Riding Pegasus
Happy Hello Dear Readers!
Pegasus, the horse of the Muses, arrived on my desk a week ago. What a beauty to behold! So, now I have no excuses, but to write on.
Another unquestionable source of inspiration is the writings of other authors. A few are:
SINCERELY YOURS (an autobiography) by my friend Norma Kohls.
SOME WELCOME HOME (a mystery) by sister author Sharon Wildwind, who served in Vietnam
The following are Christian romance novels by Irene Brand, my prolific relative:
YULETIDE STALKER, a companion book to YULETIDE PERIL (12/05) should be in the bookstores and book club mailings very soon. It's a November book, and will be in the stores about 5 weeks, starting the last week in
Other books to be published by Irene Brand the first six months in 2007 are as follows:
January A HUSBAND FOR ALL SEASONS, Love Inspired romance
March BROKEN BOW HP historical
April THE SOUND OF SECRETS Love Inspired Suspense (This book is the 4th in a series of 6 books entitled, THE SECRETS OF STONELEY. If you are interested in reading the whole series, the first book will be published in January, and one each month through July. Mine will be published in April)
July MOUNTAINS STAND STRONG HP historical
AUTHOR’S CASTLE CORNER
Still busy writing on women leaders in Africa. For the past two weeks I’ve been researching and writing on Her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, President of Liberia. I am beginning the profile of Wangari Muta Maathai, Deputy Minister of Environment and Nobel Laureate, Kenya.
OUTSIDE AUTHOR’S CASTLE CORNER
This month, November pre-election activity finds me again as a registered ballot courier. So, Pegasus takes me out of my Castle. I really enjoy getting out in the “grass roots.” It is refreshing to find that the hope of true democracy still exists in the hearts of ordinary people. These people truly inspire me. The load some people must carry and yet they find a way to vote. For example, we visited a 70 year old woman who cares for her husband with Lou Gerhig’s. This is her tenth year doing so. Another woman, 91 years old, makes certain every election that a ballot arrives at her residence of assisted living. And so, on –
And so, I climb on Pegasus back to return to my Castle to better assume my role in the world, writing books. I am inspired.
