How about a wild ride through history, myth, legend and lore? You will learn secrets of Westminster Abbey and Stonehenge in a story inspired by an amazing real person.
My name is Otis Farmer, and I would like to invite you to take an exciting and enlightening journey in my new book, Merlyn And The Mortal's Curse, a fantasy novel where Merlyn is forced to travel to the present in order to save mankind. He must take a reluctant, modern lad back to pre-Camelot, where their action packed adventures take them around the world, through time and a dimensions.

Thank you for your valuable time and consideration! Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Hi there! Yes, I am on for tomorrow. I have a dentist appointment at 11:00 that should not take more than an hour, so let's say 12:00 noon. If you are not there yet, you know that I will have a book with me! I also have a hair appointment after our lunch date, so my hair will be at a low point. I know that you will put up with me. I can't wait to see you! Where are you moving to? Best wishes!
That is wonderful, Elisa! What time works for you? I think (don't have my book with me) but I think that I have an appointment at 11:00 and the next one at 2:00. Let's make it right in there! Take care and I am really looking forward to hearing about how your year went in Helena.
Hi Elisa! Let's have lunch at that wonderful Cafe where we met when our class was over. I don't think I have been there since and I would love to go back! What are you doing at about noon on July 6th? It is ridiculous, but that is the earliest time I can go out for lunch! Ridiculous! Would you need a ride? Let me know and I look forward to getting caught up with you and your doings. I wish you a speedy recovery for your knee surgery! What happened? We can get all caught up when we meet as "Ladies who do lunch..."
Hello my friend! I miss you too and would love to get caught up with you! What are you doing in Missoula for the summer? Are you a 'lady who does lunch?' Let's check our calenders and make a date! This group should be fun for everybody and your presence will just add to the delight of all. Big hugs to you!
Hi Elisa! I am getting ready for my summer graduate young adult literature course and have opened a group for them. Do you want to join this group just for the fun of it and to see what YA titles we are reading. I hope that all is well with you! I love keeping up with you on this booklovers facebook!
Well my dear, because of your sage counsel, I did change my mind and ordered the Big Burn by Jeannette Ingold. Her book is much more richly plotted and the history is so wonderful. And I kept thinking about how gracious she was and how lovely it was to have her in our class. Perhaps I can snag her again. What are you reading these days? For our class I ended up with six selections: The Hunger Games, The Absolutely True Diary, To Kill a Mockingbird, Athletic Shorts, (short stories by Chris Crutcher), A Long Way Gone, and The Big Burn. Thanks for your insight dearie! Now to write your comprehensive exam questions...(hear evil laughter).
Thanks for the ideas. I did decide to go with Collard's book, perhaps just to not play favorites! I have never been disappointed by Jeannette Ingold. I love your idea of proposing her as an author study. The student selecting to do Jeannette could invite her to come into our class again. She is just lovely. The Big Burn may be her best book. The history is so fascinating and the threads of the plot so wide-ranging. All the best to you! Will you be on campus at all this term?
Hey Elisa, my dear. I have a question for you and Junell. I am agonizing over the last two books for required reading for my YA Course this spring!! So far I have ordered, THE HUNGER GAMES,(obviously!), THE ABSOLUTELY TRUE DIARY, and TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. I am reasonably sure that I am going to add, Chris Crutcher's ATHLETIC SHORTS, collection of short stories. I am still looking for a Global Literature piece, and am considering LONG WAY GONE, by Ishmael Bealh, or TREE GIRL, by Ben Mikaelson. I also want to include a local, realistic fiction or nonfiction piece. I think we did THE BIG BURN in our class. I am reading Sneed Collard's FLASH POINT right now and it seems pretty good. But maybe not quite as good as THE BIG BURN, or HATTIE BIG SKY. Let me know what you think!! How can I send this to both of you at once on this silly program?!
Big New Year hugs to you both...I apologize Elisa, if you are the only one to read this. I will try to cut and paste for Junell. All the best...it was great to see you the other night.
Hello dear Elisa. Do not bother with THE HISTORIAN! It is a Count Dracula tale and I just couldn't finish it. It is so dark and foreboding. That is my recommendation, but you may find otherwise. Take care and I want you to join me in my office one of these afternoons very soon!
Hi my Dear:
I see that you have just been posting and adding to your list of books. If you enjoyed the Ursula Hegl book you have on your shelf, make sure that you read, STONES IN THE RIVER. I am currently on vacation in my family's home on Lake Erie. It is a lovely old house with a wrap-around screen porch...perfect for reading! I am reading THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATOE PEEL PIE SOCIETY, and loving it. It is such a sweet read! When I get home, I am going to be working with Junell to clean out my bookshelves! If you are in town, perhaps you would like to join us and take away some of the spoils!
Stay in touch and take good care of yourself!
Hi Elisa. I am still messing around with this site and enjoying it more all of the time...especially now that I have actually found you and Junell. The next thing I will do is try to put a picture in here. I loved and was deeply disturbed by A LONG WAY GONE. I think that every young person and every senator who ever thinks about sending our young people to war should read it. I hope that you are well and enjoying the summer months. I may invite my on-line class to participate in this site. It is a fun way to share and talk about books. All the best to you! Marian
