Thanks for writing me. A beatitude is someone who acts in the interests of others. That what the book is about.
What have you been reading lately? I just finished Water for Elephants....one of those books that keeps you reading all night the story is so enchanting. Highly recommended.
Hi Nancy. Keep up the writing. it has given me a purpose; almost a calling and joy. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.
Using a dog as a main character was interesting and posed some unique problems, but I really like the finished product. It started out as a prize for a fundraising event I did for a local animal shelter. From there it grew to the first book in the series :) I had a bookstore owner request that the real Kristie, Nathan and Lilah have to visit the store to have their picture taken :) Should be a lot of fun :)
You named some of my very favorite films. Alas, I didn't put them on my own list . . . . might have to revise it. Christopher Guest produces some of the most entertaining mockumentaries around.
Welcome Nancy! I was intrigued by your protagonists - have you had their stories published?
I was reading your list of favorites. I too would put Doris Kearns Goodwin on my list, as well as Best in Show. Then I laughed as I tried to figure out if there was a theme that would tie those two together??
