Labor of Love

28 Nov

 

Book Release PhotoAt long last, my grandaunt’s stories are off the shelf and into a published book!

When my grandmother’s sister, Aunt Mable, shared her stories with me back in the early 1990s, I had every intention of editing and revising them for publication. I could almost see the stories being on the best seller list or made into a film the likes of Steel Magnolias or Fried Green Tomatoes.

Instead, I got sucked into the vortex of life and the pages sat quietly on a shelf, just waiting.

Until now.

Lovingly illustrated by my daughter who just recently turned thirteen, these stories are now published and available for family members (and anyone who enjoys tales of the American experience) on Amazon.

The book is a true labor of love. In addition to the delightfully told tales of early 20th Century rural life in Mississippi, the book contains long-lost family photos and a family tree for reference.

Who knows, perhaps Steven Spielberg is looking for a new manuscript to option into a blockbuster feel-good movie.

Until then, I am happy knowing it has made my Aunt Mable proud to hold a copy in her hands. That makes it all worthwhile.
