Guess who’s joining us in The Author’s Tent today? The lovely and talented Deborah Wiles!
I’m a huge fan. There, I’ve said it. I savor Deborah’s beautiful blog musings, over at One Pomegranate, and I’ve loved each of her award-winning books in turn. So when COUNTDOWN hit the shelves, it rocketed to the top of my reading list.
Cuban Missile Crisis … Vietnam … Hippies … Make Love, Not War … Joan Baez … We Shall Overcome … Selma … Bobby Kennedy … Martin Luther King, Jr. … Easy Rider … Malcolm X … Letter from a Birmingham Jail … The Beatles … Black Panthers … Jim Morrison … Tune in, turn on, drop out … One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind … Heavens to Murgatroyd, talk about flashbacks! I was transfixed by COUNTDOWN, start to finish, and I can’t wait for the next book in the trilogy.
Even if you’re not a child of the 60s (hush now), I daresay you’ll love COUNTDOWN.
Since its May 2010 debut, it’s received a veritable constellation of starred reviews. Haven’t read it? Let me tempt you. First, this teaser (PDF), then the trailer:
Want to know more about COUNTDOWN? Absorb some of Debbie’s Southern charm, perhaps, or talk with us about writing? Come, visit with us awhile. I’ve poured y’all some sweet tea, and I’ve saved some front-row seats.
