Bay Area Book News: Sugaree Rising and Virgin Soul
Pre-Announcement (Sugaree Rising)
A number of folks have been asking when we will be releasing my novel, Sugaree Rising, in ebook form. We've been working on it, and we'll have an announcement, soon, on a release date.
Request (Sugaree Rising)
If you've already purchased a copy of Sugaree Rising, and you've had the chance to read it and happen to like it, please take the time to post a review on our Amazon.com purchase page (http://www.amazon.com/Sugaree-Rising-J-Douglas-Allen-Taylor/dp/09151 17215/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354467664&sr=1-1&keywords=sugaree+rising). We're not favoring Amazon over any of the other sales outlets, either bookstores or online. However, Amazon is the only one where readers appear to rely heavily on reviews to make their choices, and so a kind word on their site would be very, very helpful.
Announcement (Virgin Soul)
A good family friend, Judy Juanita, has just published her first novel, Virgin Soul, based on her experiences during the 1960's in the African-American Freedom Movement in The Bay Area as well as a member of the Black Panther Party.
Information on Judy's novel (including where it can be purchased) is available on her website at http://www.judyjuanitasvirginsoul.com/, and the Los Angeles Times published a very favorable review at http://articles.latimes.com/2013/apr/19/entertainment/la-ca-jc-judy-juanita-20130421.
Judy's book is certainly worth a look.
