It's No Secret

It’s no secret.

None at all.

I told you a while back that I had finished the novella Don’t Come Around Here No More – A Tale Of Sardis County, and that I had sent it to a well-known book publisher that is starting some new imprints for their digital activities.

I’m also writing Junior’s Farm – A Tale Of Sardis County.  While it takes place in Sardis County, this one is not supernatural.  It introduces several characters that will show up in a lot of the Sardis County stories, in various appearances, from cameos to full stories about them.  The establishment of these characters will lend a small-town feel to these stories…and, in Sardis County, anything can happen!

Nor is this story about magic…at least, not the kind you’re thinking.

I’m writing this one to do all of that, and to specifically submit to that same well-known book publishing firm.

Junior’s Farm is a mostly an American romance novel.  There's your clue.

Before you laugh, I say to you:  Why not?

A romance is like any other story.  It has characters that face adversity, maybe overcome it, and fall in love along the way.

Of course, mine are a bit different, and the adversity may be a little…unusual.  And, with a little luck, the end of the adversity might not be what you’re expecting.

Oh, and it sets up the fact that Sardis County, and the city of Perry, are about six hours from the city.  An unnamed city in the novel.

Probably, the same city that Nicholas Turner and Justice Security run around in.

Close enough.

Will the security crew show up in Sardis County?  I’m not saying yes…or no.  But, the Sardis County slogan is:  Where YOU Make The Magic!

What do you think?

Keep reading!
