Yesterday, I talked to Doug Seibold, publisher of Agate Books. I don’t get to talk to him often, but when I do, it’s always a pleasure. This time he wanted to talk about Rosalyn Story, author of the new novel WADING HOME. “She is a demon when it comes to plot.”
WADING HOME is about New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. We all know that this is a watershed event in American history– so why hasn’t this novel by an acclaimed writer gotten any attention? We all have our theories, but Doug isn’t interested in throwing blame around. He wants to get this excellent novel in the hands of readers. So, for the rest of this month, you can have the ebook for free. He’s confident that if you read it, you will love it and you will tell other people.
I haven’t heard anything about this book– and I like to think of myself as being in the loop! This, I think shows, how certain stories get all the limelight. I would usually wait until I have had a chance to read something before urging you all to check it out, but the free download will be gone by then. And besides, it’s free. If you take my advice, download it, and don’t like it, what have you lost.
Here is information about getting your FREE ebook from Agate, or you can cruise over to Amazon. And here is Doug’s blog post about the plight of serious novels in this uncertain climate and great info about Rosalyn Story, the author.
Go ahead. Let’s give this book a chance.
