A quick post today to thank everyone who has been such a big supporter of Oscar’s Gift: Planting Words with Oscar Micheaux, a work of historical fiction for ages 8 and up. Your emails and generosity have made the e-publishing experience both joyful and informative. My father and step-mother, in particular, have been busy spreading the word about the book in South Dakota, drumming up interest and sales in both libraries and schools.

Over the coming Thanksgiving week, I will be putting the final touches on teachers’ and readers’ guides for the novel. Meanwhile, to express my gratitude, I am pricing the ebook at 99 cents through the rest of this year.

Please share the sale so that more young (and not so young) readers can be introduced to the homesteading years of filmmaker Oscar Micheaux, a character as big as the Great Plains he farmed.
