Had a great time in Savannah at the Seed Eco Lounge at the Book Launch. My wife, Shelly, joined us in the celebration.
Shelly and me at the Seed Eco Lounge.
The next day, I met with my coauthor Crystal and her friend, Yanek to discuss Book 3, Cybil Raven: Valley of Souls over lunch at MOON RIVER restaurant on Bay Street. Great place!
Crystal and Yanek joined us for a planning lunch!
“In a fast-paced and extraordinary novel, the lives of these two women reunite and they must put their past behind them and work together to save the orphanage, their lives, and their country from an enemy long-thought to be dead and gone. Cybil Raven: Miracle at St. Rita is powerful and raw, with a dose of reality not seen in many contemporary novels. As an Iraq War veteran herself, Crystal Craven lends so much of herself to the character of Cybil, creating a character that finds the perfect balance of power and femininity.” -Christina, Reviewer at Cherrygrrl Webzine

November 12, 2011 – Publisher Harper-Collins website, Authonomy.com, now lists Cybil Raven: Miracle at St. Rita. This reader/author community shares reading experiences and requires at least 10,000 words be made available. This is pretty cool since that is about the word count for the first 7 chapters and leaves you wondering what happens next with the last sentence which reads, “She spoke again, her voice trailing off. “She won’t see me or want to hear from me, let alone help. Cybil hates me!””
Cybil Raven loves Savannah and frequents many places in the historic district. The Historic District Map blog even has a review of Cybil Raven Beginnings and I hear is also going through Miracle at St. Rita. Thanks to Cheryl Gregorio Edenfield, Savannah Blogger for the kind words!
Author Tony Timbol will be interviewed on Nov 14 on the Author’s show, http://www.theauthorsshow.com/ about the new full length novel, Cybil Raven: Miracle at St. Rita. The interview will be available all day.
