Short story packs a punch; ‘The Chosen One’ already a favorite among readers

Chosen One_front coverWhen Kent Breazeale agreed to offer his short story for free on Smashwords, I knew readers would take to his voice and style instantly. What I didn’t expect was that within two hours after “going live”, The Chosen One would become a readers’ favorite.

In only the way that Kent can do, the voice depicted in The Chosen One is richly southern, set in a period when things were different –times were hard and whites and colored didn’t mix, much less become family.

In less than 2,900 words, The Chosen One connects the reader with the innocent hope of a child, unconditional love, loss, and finally acceptance as a young disabled boy comes to realize that blood is not always thicker than water.

I can only imagine how readers will receive Kent’s full-length novel, The Willmakers, which will soon be released for Kindle, Nook, and most e-reader platforms. RWHI is actively marketing the print rights to the novel.

It’s officially ready; An Agent’s Point of View

After a mental wrestling match with the autovetter, it seems that I passed the final review (translates to no errors) and An Agent’s Point of View went live on Smashwords yesterday.

I watched and browsed other authors and agents before deciding to give Smashwords a try. So far, I’m liking what I see. I’ll definitely keep you posted as time progresses.AAPOV_2012_Cover

As for An Agent’s Point of View, readers (targeted to writers, new and published) can get a brief, inside look at the author-agent relationship while learning what to (and not to) do when dealing with agents (and editors).

I like the brevity of my book and certainly have plans for an extended version possibly for next year. I want this book to be my voice (my Southern drawl doesn’t’ come through, however!) and to give readers the feeling that they are engaged in a conversation with me. If you have ever watched crime drama The Closer on TNT (you know…they know drama!), imagine Brenda Leigh Johnson’s (played by Kyra Sedgwick) drawl coming from this agent’s mouth. Well, maybe toned down just a tad! There could be a subconscious connection since Brenda and I have the same middle name. Who knows. Anyway, my voice is there. Readers can discern the rest!

Go on now. I’m done! Go get your copy. I have some calls to make and I need to stay on schedule. You know, that whole practice-what-you-preach thing.
