Please welcome to the 'Anything But a Tired Barn' as we host DeEette Anderton and highlight her books 'Victory' and 'The Christmas Visitors'. DeEtte we've interviewed before and I've really been looking forward to visiting with you again ... Of course we know one another from Master Koda Select Publishing, but I want to make sure our Bog Fans know you are a superb author and editor who worked on certain of my releases and forthcoming releases from Master Koda... Thank You for being such a wonderful collaborator, friend, and now guest... Now ... Do you remember the Zinger I asked to kick-off our last interview?
DA: Oh your rascal ... Wasn't it something like 'Describe yourself in one, superbly edited word ...'
GMB: Sure was ... And your answer, after asking your friends on Facebook was 'Unique'. That was your best answer, because there is only one you.
DA: That's right Mitch...
GMB: So now I have to ask ... Are you still 'unique'...
DA: You bet! You have to ask twice?
GMB: Sure I'll ask ... And I'll also ask about your wonderful stories ... Please tell us about 'Victory' ...
DA: I am very proud of my novel 'Victory' ... The story is about Victory, a town where the people love their country and their neighbors. However, what happens when two visitors come to town? One comes with fear and control, slowly taking away the freedoms the people love. The other comes with faith. When darkness overtakes the town who will have Victory? http://amzn.com/B00AJ9QEKM
GMB: I read and enjoyed reviewing this story and have to say I loved it... What does this story mean to you?
DA: Its about questions like 'Got freedom?' 'Want to keep it?' 'Is that the 'Victory'. Or do we love freedom but forgot its cost. This is about remembering, valuing before its too late...
GMB: Please share some more...
DA: Victory is the story of a little girl, and the town where she lives. The town of Victory has a history of patriotism, faith, and friendliness. The little girl, Brown Eyes, orphaned when her missionary parents were killed in a fire, lives with her only known relative who does not want the girl. When The Guest comes to town, the people open their hearts town to him, without knowing who he is or what his motive is. Shortly after his arrival, The Stranger appears, much to the discomfort of The Guest. Slowly, the town loses its freedoms as one of the men takes over little by little. When there is a face to face showdown on the mountain, the life of the child and the future of the town are at stake. Who will have the Victory? http://tinyurl.com/c3tel2c
