One thought on “About

  1. Hey Charles- I am in your Goodreads group on the Southern Literary Trails!! Caught up with you and first read Lambs of Men . Great book! Gave it 5 stars but I realized I never wrote a review . I will fix that. I have read all about the new book which has really been out now for awhile . I saw it at Square Books in Oxford and bought it then. I was hoping you might get to Oxford, MS. To sign it for me!!! It would be nice to meet you and your family and show you Oxford. I love your blog. I have been working on mine . HA!!! I am not good with the technical stuff! Nothing every comes out in the right place!!! I had a pretty good first week , but after that EVERYTIME I touched the keyboard to alter or change something, things went wrong. Then my modem was hit by lightning. So, I have had issues online. I recently Reblogged this post from this brilliant photographer named David McCurry . He did a gallery of pictures themed on , The Faces Of Afghanistan . Beautiful album with quotes throughout . I was wondering if you would mind if I reblog your post about your book . The Vimeo video is such a great idea about marketing the book. The music and the scenery is perfect to place a person in the mood to read the “antipastoral” novel!!! I love that term. I have only heard that term once in my last Southern Literature Class . I believe we were referring to a strange story written by Eudora Welty or Flannery O ‘Conner. The Welty Story I had never read and I can’t think of it but it was strange. I will look for the story later. I use the fake name below on my blog but I did use my real picture until my gravatar image messed up!!! LOL! Garbage in Garbage out!!! That is what my computer courses always taught. If I see one more cute saying, ” Code is Poetry” ! I think I will write the company a big fat letter saying , ” I am an English Teacher , and I have never seen any gobblety gook like that in an English book from which I have taught proper literature , and that includes poetry!!! ” .

    Well, let me know if I can reblog your blog about your book on my website. I want my website to be about authors , reading reviews, personal writings about any prompts that inspire me to write, art of all types, music, interesting people . I wanted to create a website to represent me — a person who Loves People and the Amazing world we live in together . I don’t quite have a title yet because I do not have something simple or creative enough to name the blog!!! How do you describe your whole personality in one adjective or one catchy phrase ? I have always had this problem with writing, I can never keep my topic narrow.
    Merci ,
    Dawn Copley
