Introducing Roots and Branches

Posted by on Sep 30, 2017 in Announcements, Roots and Branches, Short Stories | 0 comments

By the time I finished writing The Slow Trail Home, the extended Black family had grown so extensively that I realized I could never write a full book about each of the younger generation. But as I’d grown attached to each of them, I decided instead to write a series of shorter stories focused around each of the Black children (except Katja, since she already had a huge book of her own).

I also decided to make these tales available to my readers as I write them. Once all are written, I’ll collect them into a published book of companion stories called Roots & Branches, and remove them from this site.

What’s the catch? You have to be a site member to read the full story. But signing up is free, easy, and painless, and membership gives you access not only to the unpublished stories, but also to a plethora of other background information such as family trees, maps and houseplans, biographical sketches, and more (to be found under the Explore section of the new and improved website).

Sign up here.

The stories will be divided by family.
Travis and Starla’s children:

  • Josie. Be Careful What You Wish For
  • Will. Many Waters
  • Jeb
  • Samantha

Robert and Danica’s children:

Be Careful What You Wish For is already finished and should be available for reading shortly after this post is published.
