The Sun Singer's Travels

Malcolm R. Campbell's World

Writers appreciate their readers

In 2015, I’m happy that so many readers and reviewers discovered my little novella called Conjure Woman’s Cat. Y’all bravely accepted the premise that a cat could narrate a story about a disturbing time in our history.

This book represents a long-held dream of mine to write something about the world I grew up in, a world where nature was wondrous and most of the people were wondrous except for those who thought they were better than others and used violence in a misguided attempt to prove it.

The first three chapters of this novella were nominated for a Pushcart Prize.

My oldest novel The Sun Singer, which is available only on Kindle now, has been free at various times during the year. I appreciate all the downloads. The first edition of this novel was a finalist in Foreword Magazine’s book of the year.

Many of you who have read the book probably already know that the title comes from a famous statue in Allerton Park in Illinois. I dreamt about that statue for years before I figured out I was supposed to write this book.
Finally, 2015 saw a new edition of Sarbande that–like Conjure Woman’s Cat–was published by Thomas-Jacobs. The book is set primarily in Glacier National Park, Montana. While it continues the story of several of the characters from The Sun Singer, it can easily be read as a standalone novel.

Also in 2015, I brought out the Kindle short stories “Dream of Crows,” “Carrying  Snakes Into Eden,” and “Snakebit” along with a new edition of The Land Between the Rivers (three stories) in a series we have called “Tate’s Hell Stories.” Tate’s Hell is a Florida Panhandle preserve on the Gulf Coast.

In progress is a follow-up novella to Conjure Woman’s Cat as well as a third book in the “Mountain Journeys Series.” I’m happy that my publisher claims she is a very slow writer because that makes it easier for me to work on my own books at a snail’s pace.

Thank you for supporting my habit.
