I wanted to say “Thank You!” to everyone who helped get Old Number Seven to the desk this month. When I originally came to Authonomy three years ago, I thought my novel was pretty good. But all of you helped me out in ways both big and small, and that enabled me to make very effective rewrites. I hardly recognize the book today compared to what it was back then. I’m grateful beyond words as I offer up ON7 to the Authonomy gods for review. If HC ends up publishing it, all of you are in some way responsible. I hope you see it as our victory. I know I do.
As you fly away to help other deserving authors, I would like to humbly suggest that you read over a few of my favorites. If you enjoyed Old Number Seven, I think you will like these as well.
The Fortune of Annacara by Kay Christine Fenton is a hauntingly beautiful historical tale of love, loss and hardship on the American Frontier. Fenton has the ability to bring readers right down into the heart of her dusty world. One of the best! http://authonomy.com/books/652/the-fortune-of-annacara/
The Cross of Goa by Laurence Howard is a religious-themed thriller that will surly give The Da Vinci Code a thrashing. http://authonomy.com/books/16306/the-cross-of-goa/
Last Tango for Che by Elina Castro Almeyra is a true story set in the hotbed of revolutionary Argentina by a woman who has seen it all. http://authonomy.com/books/33945/last-tango-for-che/
Snow Bound by Justis Call is a psychological thriller featuring a main character as unique as the book’s author. It’s hard to describe, but easy to love. http://authonomy.com/books/31436/snow-bound/
Last but not least, Tales from the Top by Toppy gives a dog’s eye view of the world. One of the cleverest animal-centered books I’ve read, you’ll love this one from nose to tail. http://authonomy.com/books/32444/tales-from-the-top/
Keep in touch, my friends. I wish you all every success.
