The ‘Beyond’ Trilogy June 2014 Newsletter

A Refreshing Approach to Historical Fiction

Novels by J. Winfield Currie

 

June is already here – almost halfway through the year. At the moment I have several irons in the fire and feel a bit fragmented – time to prioritize and clean out old files. Oddly enough, while cleaning out old ‘stuff’, I found a small bit of line art I had created in 1979 – illustrating a poem by a poet who had not crossed my mind in many years.  It provided subject matter for a recent Tweet, one that gained me several new followers. Here’s the link for my Tweeted picture  depicting Stephen Crane’s ‘Toad’ Poem. pic.twitter.com/BBEPUL0vPW

One of my favorite classes while attending Mass College of Art in Boston was Humanities. I loved both American and English Poetry and Prose, and still have the books. Cleaning out my old files ceased immediately upon opening the chapter on Stephen Crane – forerunner to the Realist Movement of the late 1890’s. ‘Toad’ is one of my favorite poems, and the Blog Link provides 2-3 more examples. He is a kindred spirit in his approach to life. We think alike in so many ways. He just got to say it first!

I have a great deal to share next month on my prequel: “A matter of Destiny”. I’ll raise some interesting questions that will pique the interest of those who have read “Beyond All Reason” as well as those who have not … as yet.

I’m in the process of creating 8 – 10 new Blogs for Twitter, Google +, my Amazon Author Central Page, Face Book and LinkedIn. I must admit Social Media is creating excellent visibility. When Googling J. Winfield Currie with a friend yesterday, I was astonished to find myself – and all 4 books – listed in countries all over the world. You can even Google my Colonel Jason Tarrington and … voila!

Enjoy the pleasant weather and wonderful aromas of approaching summer: Lily of the Valley, Lilacs, freshly mowed lawns, steaks on the ‘barby’ and so much more.

Until next month, Joan
