Thank You for A Grand First Year!

By Catherine Hedge

Happy New Year!

A year ago, persistent writer friends convinced us that we should start a blog.  We wanted  to showcase our writer’s group in preparation for launching our indie novels and reintroducing previously published works.  What a grand adventure!  We now have four novels shimmering hopefully on the e-book shelves:

Donna Gillespie’s  soaring novel of ancient Rome, The Light Bearer (revised edition)

Marie Loughin’s creepy urban horror novel, Valknut: The Binding

Raji Singh’s inventive take on American folk tales, Tales of the Fiction House

And Charlene Newcomb’s touching family saga, Keeping the Family Peace

I hope that you have had a chance to enjoy one or all of these fine pieces of writing, all vastly different except for the three things we have in common; persistence, a passion to write well, and a common dream.  We want each of you to be  curled up comfortably, a warm drink at hand, and smiling…or tearing up…because a character has touched your heart.  As Leonard Bishop used to say, “Is there anything to be but a writer?”

Thank you for your support, Readers, and thank you, Leonard!

Your fans at Pen in Hand.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,700 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.
