We are very happy to read the review of Echoes Across the Blue Ridge, essays, stories and poems by writers living in and inspired by the southern Appalachian Mountains.
People whose voices still echo across these Blue Ridge Mountains.
Many of my writing friends have work in this book, and the compliments continue to pour in. As marketing director for Netwest, I have worked hard for two years in an attempt to get this book on the shelves of book stores, gift shops, and any place where the book might be appreciated by those who shop there. Representatives from all over the nine counties west of Asheville have done a tremendous job of distributing the books.
One of my best customers in Towns County, Georgia is Mary's Southern Grill. Mary's gift shop continues to order and sell this beautiful book. If any of my readers know of a retail store that carries books that appeal to tourists or good regional books, please let me know. We are in our second and probably last printing of the book, so when we sell out of our inventory, there will be no more.
The book reviewer for WNC Women, Mary Ickes, liked Echoes, edited by Nancy Simpson, and mentions many of the contributors and their work.
Correction to the review: The writers says the book includes only Netwest members. The submission call went out to all writers in the region served by NCWN West and writers who are not members are also included.
Give books for Christmas this year and include some of our regional writers.
So not only did you teach me about writing memoir, you also taught me about reading and thinking about how others write memoir. Thank you so much! Rebecca
