Historical Novel Traces the Biggest Civil Rights Events of the 1960s

CoverThe times they are a-changin’, sang Bob Dylan. Segregation is ending in the South and a new day of racial equality is dawning in this stunning novel about a courageous young Southern woman named Sassy Sonja.

Events in the turbulent 1960s shaped a new generation of leadership in Atlanta, the dynamic capital of the new South. After the death of her abusive ex-husband in a car accident, Sonja Kent moves to Atlanta to start a new life. She is swept off her feet when Marion Avon walks into her life. The young man from a wealthy and influential Atlanta family ardently pursues Sonja and asks her to marry him. Given her humble roots, it takes her time to adjust to her new role as a socialite. Meanwhile, Sonja’s husband gets involved with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference to fight peacefully for social change.

Sonja supports the end of segregation, but fears the violence that could erupt. The world she knew where whites and blacks used separate restrooms and water fountains, children went to racially segregated schools, and blacks were denied service in hotels and restaurants are becoming a thing of the past. Whatever trials Sonja faces, she proceeds with faith. But when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy are assassinated, events seem to be spiraling out of control in the nation and in Sonja’s family.

 

AuthorAbout the Author: Sarah Sewell Wolters wrote her first book Sassy Sonja: Virgin Bride in 2014. Born in Atlanta in 1939, she has seen the changes that have reshaped the South and wanted to record them for her grandchildren. “My book reflects my hometown pride. Today, in a new millennium, our newspaper headlines reflect racial conflicts which still persist despite 50 years of change.”

“The background of this fascinating read tells an important story of events that shaped the civil rights era of American history. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.

Beware! Obsessive Kidnapper Strikes in This Edgy Thriller

Book CoverEnter the mind of an obsessive kidnapper in the stunning novel The Singing Violin. What must a young woman do to escape a man who is so obsessed with her that he wants to turn her into a prostitute?

When beautiful young Ryanna goes out for a drink with her boyfriend’s sister, she realizes the danger that she is in. For they are not in an ordinary pub, but a brothel, and she runs away. Harry, the brothel owner, desires Ryanna and catches her, but she escapes and turns to her boyfriend, Richard, for help. Richard just passed his violin examination with the symphony orchestra, and as he is playing a concert, Ryana watches him on television and phones her brother. A knock on her door announces a flower delivery. When Ryanna opens the door and sees it’s Harry, she screams.

Ryanna’s brother hears her screams and calls the police. But Harry has drugged the girl and taken her away. Will she be found before she is forced into a life of prostitution?

“This contemporary thriller deals with social and mental health issues, as it keeps readers enthralled with the big chase scenes. We are thrilled to announce its release,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.

A Theory of Expanded Love Press Release

A Theory of Expanded Love

picked up by US publisher

 Cover

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Acclaimed Playwright Caitlin Hicks Signs with Light Messages Publishing for Debut Novel

Light Messages Publishing is thrilled to announce that Caitlin Hicks, an acclaimed playwright from Vancouver, Canada, will be publishing her debut novel with the press in May 2015.

Ms. Hicks’ novel A Theory of Expanded Love is a coming-of-age story featuring a feisty yet gullible adolescent, trapped in her enormous, devout Catholic family in 1963. Surrounded by twelve brothers and sisters, and desperate for attention, Annie creates a hilarious campaign of lies when the pope dies and their family friend, Cardinal Stefanucci, is unexpectedly on the short list to be elected the first American pope. Driven to elevate her family to the holiest of holy rollers in the parish, Annie is tortured by her own dishonesty. But when one of her brothers gets left behind at Disneyland and ‘The Hands’ visit her in her bed, when her sister becomes pregnant “out of wedlock,” Annie discovers her parents will do almost anything to uphold their Catholic reputation. Questioning all she has believed, and torn between her own gut instinct and years of Catholic guilt, Annie takes courageous risks to wrest salvation from the tragic sequence of events set in motion by her parents’ betrayal.

While A Theory of Expanded Love is Ms. Hicks’ first novel, she has published several short stories, including That Rescue Feeling, which was shortlisted for the John Spencer Hill Fiction Award. Monologues from several of her plays were featured in Smith & Kraus’ series ‘Best Women’s Stage Monologues’ (New York). She also wrote the play, later adapted for the screen, Singing the Bones, which debuted at the Montreal World Film Festival to stellar reviews and screened around the world.

“I’m thrilled to share this quirky family with readers,” said Hicks “It’s wonderful to have a partner to help me get this story into the world.”

Light Messages Publishing is a family-run publishing company that specializes in meaningful books by emerging authors.

Caitlin’s debut novel A Theory of Expanded Love is a gem of a book, and we couldn’t be prouder to represent it,” said Elizabeth Turnbull, Senior Editor of Light Messages Publishing.

A Theory of Expanded Love is in final stages of editing, but earlier drafts have already received tremendous praise from readers.

“In a nutshell: I love the story. The voice is fantastic,” said Erin Niumata, VP and Agent at Folio Lit.

“I love it! I love your character! I love this book!” writer JoAnne Bennison told Ms. Hicks after reading an early draft.

“Hilarious. Terrific story, bravely truthful,” enthused writer/editor Rosa Reid.“Brilliant ending.”

With cross-over appeal to both adults and young adult readers, A Theory of Expanded Love reaches across the divide of generations to tell the humorous and unexpected story of self-discovery and coming of age amidst dishes, diapers, dogma and two-piece bathing suits.

Advance Reader Copies of A Theory of Expanded Love will be available January 2015. Ms. Hicks is available for interviews. To schedule an interview or event with Ms. Hicks, please contact publicist@lightmessages.com.
