Thank you for reading this blog entry! This is the eighteenth post on the blog tour. If you have only just joined the tour, welcome! If you are still with us, thank you for following the tour! This is the penultimate blog on the virtual book tour. Yesterday, I talked about the variety of poems in Forever Friends and today I will be talking about the non-fiction stories in the anthology. Real friendships are made every day along with new relationships of love or companionship. At the same time, friendships are broken and friends are lost in one way or another. The true stories in Forever Friends reflect all these different states of friendship and human relationships. You will find true stories about family relationships, old school friends, ex-lovers, new acquaintances and even family pets.
Yvonne Oot’s short story, Timeless Friendships is a true story about the music industry. After travelling the world, Yvonne finally chose to settle in Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music. Starting her writing career with Interstate 40 Country Music Magazine, she has met and worked with some of country music’s finest legends. Keeping her promise to Merle Kilgore just prior to his death in 2005, Yvonne currently writes for Up Country Magazine in the UK. Her short story in the anthology is a tribute to Merle Kilgore and Jim Ames, who mentored Yvonne and followed her career until their own deaths.
I would like to thank Yvonne for inviting me to her blog to give me a chance say more about the true stories in the anthology.
Forever Friends is available now from amazon.com: Forever Friends
