Blue Opera Rock was born from my deep love for rock'n'roll and freedom. In other words my vision is that freedom is an incomparable value but we got to learn from our history if we want to manage our freedom.
I am currently on a stone age broadband connection in the UK - we measure its speed in seasons of the year, you know 6 bites per winter!
But I am told that by the 17th I shall be in the land of the super fibre optics and speeding along with a fast connection. So I shall take a look then and get back to you.
The Throngers idea is neat by the way.
Bye for now,
Agree about hard selling, but when sales are slow ... I'd rather somebody buy my book because they like the subject and/or characters.
Have you watched CSNY Deja Vu? Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young, at Young's request, revisit war protests focusing on the Middle East, with a tour of the States. I had never even heard about it until I found it on Netflix. I think you'd appreciate it. Here's a link if your curious.
You may not know me or my work but I am the author six critically acclaimed, award winning novels and I have been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. On Jan 9th 2010 my debut novel will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary and I hope you will buy a copy to help commemorate this milestone.
"Bernice L. McFadden's first novel begins with the brief, poetic description of a crime so startling that the reader is helplessly drawn in, as if a bright red door stood ajar on a bleak and forbidding house. Pearl Taylor's daughter, Jude, has been found murdered and mutilated near a field at the edge of town. "The murder had white man written all over it," writes McFadden. "But no one would say it above a whisper. It was 1940. It was Bigelow, Arkansas. It was a black child. Need any more be said?" In the years that follow, Pearl catches sight of Jude in so many strangers that when Sugar Lacey comes to town and sets up her unwholesome "business" in the house next door, she doesn't know whether to believe what she sees in Sugar's face: a striking similarity to Jude, dead 15 years. In her sedate but supple prose--rising at times to a light, unforced lyricism in the description of landscape or character--the author perfectly renders the closed and protective society of a small Southern town, the superstitions, gossip, and prying."
