I hope you enjoyed my guest, Roland Yeomans, author of The Bear with Two Shadows. Roland is kind enough to forgo the beach today to visit my blog for another segment of his blog book tour.
Michael: Hi, Roland. Thank you for coming back. There are few things that I can't wait to ask you about.
Roland: Hi, Michael. It is always a pleasure to meet with you.(He nods and flashes a smile.)
Michael: I remember reading that you once owned a book store. How intriguing. Could you tell us about it?
Roland: Mother had contracted cancer, and so, with the help of two good friends, and emptying my life savings -- I started a bookstore in the local Mall.
Michael: I remember you mentioning in one of your posts that you wrote a series of stories for an ill child. Tell us more about that.
Michael: What else have you written?
Michael: Maybe just a tad, but we love it! Roland, thank you so much for sharing your life with us. It has been wonderful to have this personal chat with you, and I know it will make our friendship stronger. Who will be your next stop of your blog tour?
Roland: Becky (Words Crafter) @ The Rainy Day Wanderer.
Michael: I can't wait to drop in on Becky tomorrow. Safe travels Roland.
Roland: My St. Christopher statue jumped off the dashboard during the last hurricane! But so far the Father rides in the passenger seat.
I'd like to leave you all with a synopsis of The Bear with Two Shadows...
To this day the Lakota still whisper an ancient legend around the campfire. They whisper lest Estanatlehi, The Turquoise Woman, overhears and visits her sorrow and her wrath upon the talebearer for speaking words long, long forbidden.Then why speak them at all?Why?Listen to the sigh of the world in the winter winds. It is the sad nature of all Two-Leggeds that the forbidden tale is the very one most hard not to hear -- or to pass on.And it begins, as most forbidden tales do, with a woman.The Turquoise Woman.She whose cold and remote thoughts some see in the sky as the Northern Lights. Not that she cannot love.But her love is both haunting and terrible beyond any singing of it, as Hibbs, the Bear with Two Shadows, discovers.
