WRITER'S BLOCK, Vol. 3, Issue #9 Glory Trail Audio Update, Giving away more books
September 01, 2017
The Beauty of Fall!
The following article was inspired by some good questions from Paddy and Pam. (More about the contest below David's bit.)
How I Got This Way...
What's in a Name?
A loyal reader/listener to our efforts here at Ironbear expressed curiosity about the origin of some of the characters names in the Trail series of westerns. All right…confession time. A few of the names I have used were from real people I knew back in the 1950’s.
Book Give-Away Information
In our last newsletter, we announced the following give-away:
The Ironbear crew is working on revamping the newsletter. Our goal is to make it more interesting for you. So, guess what! We really want your input on what would entertain you the most. Please, send your suggestions our way. Oh, and by the way, there's even more than upped entertained in it for you! Here's what we're going to do. The first 10 people who email us a "do-able" suggestion will be snail-mailed an autographed paperback book of DEER RUN TRAIL. Any suggestion that is put into play will also get its sender an autographed paperback book of NODAWAY TRAIL.
So, get that brain a thinkin' then use the email below to send the results. (Remember, you must use the email address below.)
At the present time, we have sent out 6 autographed books to Paddy and Pam, (a wonderful husband and wife team who received both Deer Run and Nodaway since this month's bit was inspired by them), Nancy, Nathan, James, and Joe. They all wrote us some great emails full of ideas and suggestions.
We look forward to sending out more books!
TRAIL SERIES UPDATES
Guess what! David spent August 22nd in studio, recording Glory Trail. He and Joel got about 60% of the book recorded. Plans are for him to go back in studio tomorrow (August 29th) and finish up the vocal work. The next steps will be editing the dialogue, adding the music, then sending the sound track off to Openbook Audio so they can do their magic. If all goes as it should, the audio version will be available in about 2 months.
And, another update: Though he has changed a few things and has done some more extensive research, David has made progress on the new Trail book. He's going through the usual writer's angst: maybe the title needs changed, nope the boys wouldn't go there, gotta come up with a better location for that...those kind of thoughts. (It's the typical process, so don't worry.) At present, he has around 30,000 words. That means the book should be completed by Spring 2018.
We named the channel David R Lewis. So, you can just type in David's name, and the YouTube search engine will pull it up, or you can click on any of the links below.
