I’m excited! Getting ready to release the Omnibus Edition of my historical fiction story about the birth of New York City (and the island at its heart: Manhattan).
The Winter Solstice (for us No’Hemispherians or NoHems) occurred on December 21 at 11:28 am EDT (UTC-04). The reason I’m posting this today is that December 23 is my late-father’s birthday. He passed on five years ago, but I still associate the year’s longest night with him. Not because of dark feelings, but really, the opposite.
When I saw a mention that the 2016 film Neither Wolf Nor Dog was coming to the historic Byrd Theater in nearby Richmond, I couldn’t resist. First of all, look at that magnificent photo above by Scott Kelby. They don’t make movie theaters like that any more, do they? (FYI: The Bryd opened in 1928 and they currently charge only $1.99 for showings of classic and arthouse films) But the main draw was the movie as part of the inaugural Pocahontas Reframed Native American Storytellers Film Festival.
Well, I did it—just published the 4th and final ebook (1640) of The Manhattan Series on Amazon. Book description: “The gripping story of New York City’s (and Manhattan’s) birth concludes in 1640 during a period of extreme turmoil.” You can see the cover above and here’s the direct link to it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0768VRSHP
