Another Gold Star Question?

Updated: Oct 5, 2019

Here is a two ⭐️⭐️ GOLD STAR question. One of the main characters in my novel, "Tares among the Wheat" is young widow, Amelia Meade. Although my novel is not yet released, the answer to this question can be found in my postings on Facebook, Twitter, and/or my website. THE QUESTION: Amelia suffers three personal tragedies in her lifetime, as disclosed in the novel. What were those three specific tragedies? 🧐🥴🤔

Although the subjects in the photo are not identified, and my research failed, I am certain the woman on the left is my mother. I was fortunate to have such background and ancestry as resources for my novel, "Tares among the Wheat" to be released by late November, 2019.

I'll be at the Bethany Library tomorrow, October 6th, to read my book, "Grady's in the Silo". Then we'll work on a craft. Grady and I hope you can come. It's at 2 P.M.

What a set. HELL ON THE BORDER based on these books to be released soon and MORGAN FREEMAN just announced he is making a TV series on this great man's life after he read the three books.

History and action combined in the story of the greatest US Marshal in Indian Territory and possibly the greatest to ever serve.

Does OFWI maintain a list of members who are also editors with areas of specialization? If so, how do I access it? Thanks.

A positive remark speaks volumes. I would like to ask a special favor. My new historical nonfiction book is coming out soon and I'm looking for blurb endorsements and reviews. The books focus on using the social history of the times to understand what your ancestors were thinking and feeling.

The first of two volumes. THE FIRST HUNDRED YEARS IN AMERICA chronicles the Presidents, the Federal Census, and current events that influenced the lives of our ancestors from 1790 to 189...

Mark Jones Congratulations. I know you’ve worked very hard getting to this point. The draft I read was a fascinating look at the USA as of each census. Very informative with many historical details not commonly a part of our history books. Best wishes and good luck.Hide or report thisLike · Reply · 10h

Raymona Anderson My books are stand alone fiction that require lots of research, have layered plots, and new characters, settings, etc. So I don't write fast, but sure do admire writers who can do. I will say I have one book and a sequel in the works, but that too took years of research.Hide or report thisLike · Reply · 2d
