When I was little I was full of excited anticipation, All the time, breathless for the future.. My mind was full of visions of a life far beyond the small family farm we were fortunate to be raised and nurtured on.. My dear, precious mother would look in my eyes..and talk to me –without moving her lips– She told me to be.. -Unafraid…of becoming whatever I dreamed of–in each stage of my eternity -Unrestrained..in sharing my love and beliefs–spreading my word and the bits of knowledge and experience I gathered over my lifetime.. And -Unapologetic if I stepped beyond boundaries and over thresholds others thought a woman of my station should ever imagine. What a gift she gave me… Thank you, my Guardian Angel. My precious Mother. For being there–as you are even today… Always THERE..
It is amazing how being a creative soul–is an entity unto itself.. Makes no matter, what genre we speak, it affects us. You could be a creator of, say, design, in all that broad spectrum. Or you could be an ”idea man/gal’ and create concepts or business plans or strategies It may be in the arts–again in all that broad spectrum.. The point?? Creativity, passionate, tenacious creativity DOES take courage. It can add to your persona in the broad strokes..or detract.. How? Here’s an example. I was recently speaking to a fellow writer out of Texas and he was saying how so many writers avoid relationships for ”normal’ people cannot possibly understand that writing –is not a choice….a light-switch…a punch-the-clock kind of lifestyle.. (sound familiar, Creators?) Even two WRITERS cohabiting can fall into jealousies and questions about commitment and such.. Bottom line- Most think we creatives (and there are a lottt of you in my circle –a LOT!) are gifted and lucky..Perhaps in most ways we are…but in other ways———hmm. A wondrous curse? Onwards.. @BoomerNovel
This is my buddy Tim Barret-Ford from Missouri holding Call me J–He is one of my biggest cheerleaders and I love him for that!! and just for him for he is a dear man..\t\hank you for that push in Call me J after you read it-Tim.. Below is another reader-Cindy..TY my dear girl!!! From July 5-2015.. YAY..A recent review from a reader on AMAZON.COM!!! THANK YOU!!!! AND the reader gave me FOUR stars!!! wootwoot…… *********From the moment I started reading Call Me J I was hooked. It’s a book that you can’t put down and don’t want to end savoring every moment in between. This crazy family will have you laughing, crying and your blood boiling within a few pages. Never before have I felt such a connection with a character as in Call Me J. When I got to the end I sat for a moment just taking in all of adventures, heartaches and celebrations Annie faced. The book is nicely written and from a first time author I found it easy to follow. I am definitely ready for the second book of this trilogy.*******
“Library in my mind” Awww yes.. Books… Our saving grace when we are in despair and need solace….. Our teachers. Our comedians when we need to laugh. Our heart’s desire when we need to imagine great love and passion. Our roadmaps to motivate and inspire us. Our Angels when we feel to give up.. We all NEED books.. They are our companions in life.. And once read and taken into our soul, a thing that NO ONE can steal from us… For we OWN the words then.. Forever and ever. Pamela–May-2015 —
Looking back to the final touches before I published Call me J–TWO YEARS AGO!! Can you believe it??? Here was my post April4-2014. ~~ I will Inform you all with the link as soon as it is live–within 4-5 weeks it will FINALLY be available in paperback or on Amazon as an e book!! Here is the final synopsis David, Jennifer and I came to… A Boomer’s Truth Trilogy Synopsis –Book 1 Call me J Historical events and pop-cultural reminders abound and mingle with the lives of this seemingly typical Boomer family. Spanning and including over 50 years, this funny, forthright, down-to-earth but melodramatic chronicle begins in the early stages in protagonist Annalee’s family’s lives, with the infamous Hurricane Hazel, taking young child Annie, in 1954 to her stormy mid-thirties in Book 1, Call me J. The author takes a naive high school dropout country gal on unexpected journeys so varied as to be pooh-poohed as unlikely in one lifetime. Annie, born ‘different’ from her sibs but happily approaching a decided future from a tiny town in southwestern Ontario, Canada ventures, instead, to a life of magical adventure. Or misadventure. Reader’s choice. This honest, memoir-style trilogy will have you saying […]
