AUTHOR’S CORNER:Visiting With author Phyllis Staton Campbell

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to the Author’s Corner.

This afternoon multi-genre author Phyllis Staton Campbell has dropped back by to chat with us about her writing project. When last we visited with her she announced that she’s working on the sequel of Where Sheep May Safely Graze. If you’ve not read that book you’ve certainly missed out on a treat.

Be sure to read onward after her update to find out about all her magnificent works.

 

Me:

Hi Phyllis, I’m glad you could take time out of your busy schedule to come by and chat with us about your work. How’s it going?

 

Phyllis:

Hi and thanks for having me in today. This book is coming right along. I got the first chapter of the book past the outline stage and written, so now I have a prologue which I may or may not use. I wrote a little over a thousand words this morning and made corrections. I’m really pleased at the way it’s going. Thanks for the Writer’s Grapevine. That’s a real treat for those of us who don’t have time to wade through lots of messages during the week.

A teaser for you this afternoon, “Pastor in a tree”, maybe blind pastor up a tree.

 

Me:

Well, Phyllis, you’ve got my curiosity up with all these little teasers. Having read the first book, I can only imagine what Pastor Jim, Amy, and their congregation might be up to.

Readers, I must say if you’ve not taken the time to read Phyllis’s Where Sheep May Safely Graze as well as her other works, you’re truly missing out.

What? You’ve not read her work? Good Grief! Let’s fix that right away. See below for all the details, and for those of you who read via bard.loc.gov Miss Phyllis has some of her works there and her other ones can be found on Amazon and other book buying sites.

 

*** If any of you have read Phyllis’s work we’d love to know what you think of it. Please do let us know in the comments section, and if you’ve reviewed any of them how about sharing your reviews with us.

Please remember, if you make a comment on the blog, be sure and check the box to receive follow up comments so that Phyllis can chat with you or contact her via email at her address shown below.

New Release 2017

Where Sheep May Safely Graze

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Phyllis Staton Campbell, who was born blind, writes about the world she knows best. She calls on her experience as teacher of the blind, peer counselor and youth transition coordinator. She says that she lives the lives of her characters: lives of sorrow and joy; triumph and failure; hope and despair. That she and her characters sometimes see the world in a different way, adds depth to the story. She sees color in the warmth of the sun on her face, the smell of rain, the call of a cardinal, and God, in a rainbow of love and grace.

Although she was born in Amherst County, Virginia, she has lived most of her life in Staunton, Virginia, where she serves as organist at historic Faith Lutheran church, not far from the home she shared with her husband, Chuck, who waits beyond that door called death.

This book was wonderful. It held my attention from the first page until the end and I did not want it to end. I hope a second book will be forth coming. Kudos to you Phyllis for the best book I have read in a long time.

        Oh that makes me all the more curious. I am excited watching this develop. It’s one thing to read a book after it is done. It’s another thing to be part of the process. It’s kind of special. I enjoy your writing very much.

      I too enjoy talking with others about my writing project, and I’m learning a good balance on how much to share and how much to keep to myself.

        I think the “how much” depends on what the writer intends to do with the book, short story etc. Especially for books, if you are hoping for a traditional sale or agent, keep it very short as I’m doing here. Most book editors frown on things with any length being put out on line. If you know you’re going to self-publish the decision is strictly yours, although don’t give too much away, just enough to hook the reader.

        This is good advice, and is one of the reasons for my doing these kinds of pieces.

        Authors learning from authors.

  3. My review of A place to belong can be read at the link below. In this post, I reviewed several books, but Phyllis’s is the first one, so it shouldn’t be hard to find.

      Oh that was a good book wasn’t it? I’ve read everything Phyllis has written but the one she did that was a true crime novel. Although I love where she may safely graze, my most favorite book so far has been cry in the night. And Phyllis, if I have that title wrong please come on in correctly. I’m working straight from memory here. Are usually go and look at the titles of books before I name them on any kind of comment. But I’m on my phone, and dictating. So if I screwed it up come and fix it. LOL.

      Abbie, thank you. As well as I can remember when this nice review was posted, I was recovering from a rather long illness. How refreshing to read it now. Many thanks.

        Yes, Abbie thanks for posting.

        Phyllis, isn’t it nice to come upon something like this from time to time. Kind of a boost while working on a new project to know that your previous works were pleasurable to some?

        This review link Abbie shared will go into Friday’s Writer’s Grapevine.
