"GRANDDADDY" By Cavis Adams — MANA's Book of the Month

As a way to introduce to a new audience, MANA will feature a “Book of the Month” written by one of MANA’s authors.

MANA’s Book of the Month feature is not the traditional subscription-based book service in which members pay for and receive a new book each month. MANA plans to promote a book by a MANA author through its various media channels. Readers may preview and purchase a book on the book’s web page.

Our inaugural book for September 2017 is Granddaddy, a “coming of age” work by first-time author, Cavis Adams. The author masterfully interweaves the method of stream of consciousness to tell the story of the developing relationship between Granddaddy Jeremiah Hunter, who lives in rural Alabama, and his grandson, Curtis, a youngster from Minnesota.  

Other stories are interwoven implementing stream of consciousness with such skill that the reader cannot help but understand the underlying pain and challenges that Curtis’s parents experience as individuals and as a couple. The unifying element is the spiritual strength that Jeremiah Hunter offers throughout the novel. 

As a special offer, purchase a copy of Granddaddy, and receive $5 off the price of another book on's website. A $5 rebate check will be sent to you after purchase of the book, Granddaddy.

A Q&A With Martha Freudigman, Author of "Through The Storms"

Martha Freudigman welcomes Martha Freudigman, author of Through The Storms, a unique book made up of two stories. One is a fictional murder mystery with all of the twists and turns one would expect. The second story is Ms. Freudigman's autobiography! 

The first part of Through The Storms tells the intriguing story of Marguerite (Maggie) Halloran, a single, "almost" 24 year-old bookstore owner. The store hosted a monthly book club whose members enjoyed reading murder mysteries. 
Little did Maggie know what she was in for after purchasing an old Gothic house in which two gruesome murders took place.

In the second part of the book, Ms. Freudigman, shares the challenges she endured in her more than 80 years of living. Readers will enjoy both stories in this page-turning, fast-paced, book that will keep them engaged from start to finish. 

Following up where the first mystery left off, Ms. Freudigman has written, Through The Storms Again—The Sequel: A Mini-Murder Mystery. The book begins with two murderers escaping law enforcement. These felons and their henchmen terrorize the citizens of the small town of Lincoln.

MANA: Would you please describe to readers what Through The Storms is all about? 
Martha Freudigman: It is a fictional murder mystery with lots of twists that make it unusual.
