My "Other" First Book

This has been a busy time since last posting! I decided to follow my Dad's lead and self-publish the first manuscript I ever wrote on Amazon. Its title is 'Song of the Unsung' and it takes place on the North Slope of Alaska with the Inupiat Eskimos and others who live and work along the coast up there. It's an apocalyptic thriller with a few twists.

I should receive the proof in a few days and once I make necessary corrections, it will come out on the market in both paperback and Kindle shortly thereafter, hopefully by March. I'll keep y'all posted!

The Inspiration of my Dad

This past week has been a joy, despite some health issues that popped up. My 78 year old Dad, Larry Eddings, just self-published his first novel on Amazon. The Kindle version came out Monday and the paperback on Friday. Its title is Sam and it is a mainstream fiction project.

He writes for the love of creativity and the relaxation it provides. He also happens to write great stories in the process. I know that the proud offspring thing might seem a little cliche, but this guy's been my hero my whole life anyhow. I am extraordinarily excited about his accomplishment. Buy the book and see what you think!
