Some of the date and facts are true; the characters are fictitious. Artist – Dannie Michelle Wright
Lingering Shadows has been sent to the publishers today. It should be sent to the printers soon. There have been many interruptions and delays on this book due to family emergencies, personal illness and mother’s illness and hospitalization.
An historical novel, written with the American family in mind. There is pride in the American society, both North and South. Love of family and country, patriotism and tragedy are entailed in the story. Historical events and dates are true. Characters are fictitious.
Everyone deals with circumstances and negativity in life. The characters are comforted in that they have the warmth and love of their families to get them through the more challenging times. The Civil War left the country in devastation and destruction. Read how the main character, Benjamin Green, finds his way from a humble and modest beginning to become a self-made millionaire overnight.
A sequel to Glimpses of the Past, this is a must-read for historians and history buffs. The artwork is stunning inside and out, symbolic of the homes that were built during the Civil War era. Artist is Dannie Michelle Wright for front cover design, painting and sketches.

Glimpses of the Past; Heritage of the Old South is an historical novel about the Old South during the Civil War. Few historical novels have presented the Old South in such a heartfelt manner with brutalities of the war.
The author brings tragedy, devastation and conflict to life in the characters. Families struggled to survive then. The war was significant to both the North and the South. The thresholds of the war are felt strongly even today.
The significant part of the main character was that he overcame the past to move forward in his life. Reminiscences of the past were less painful to him as he began to understand his purpose in life.
Read how a determined young man survived the Civil War days. Explore the depths of how determination and stamina helped him. Discover his secret of life’s accomplishments. Learn how he escaped the darkness within to grow beyond glimpses of the past.

I have noticed how much people whine and complain about not getting stats lately. I won’t say anymore on this subject as you know who you are. If you did your homework well, you would know that stats go up and down at certain times. It’s a natural flow in our daily lives. Networking is a process of connecting to others and promoting your blog. It lets others know you are out there. Truth is, I am guilty of this insane habit too. I go through my email everyday, networking to create responses and overflow to people in the blogging world. Sometimes, I have so much clutter in my email that I quickly glance at the posts, deleting unnecessary ones or uninterested (boring) ones. I Continue reading
It clearly matters whether or not you have a good marketing consultant. A marketing consultant can either make or break you, especially on self-published books. Though the phone calls can sometimes get continuous, I find that marketing consultants have the techniques in selling your product. My publisher sets authors up with marketing consultants once their books are published. While I was thrown off at first, I find the frequent updates to be beneficial for selling books. I don’t always agree with the processing fees and costs, but I understand that they have to make a living too. I believe I have a good marketing consultant as he says, “Your success is my success.” Some information I found useful after going through this several times is: Continue reading
