LONG WALK UP (Award Winning Story) SPIRAL Mystery set in 1940s

Mulukan crawled to the edge of the stand and peered around the corner. She watched the people and searched for an opening, a time when she could mix in with them undetected. That time did not come until nightfall. Everyone except one man was gone away from the market. She ran up to the man like she was his daughter, like he'd been looking for her.

Do you want to learn how to overcome some of life's toughest challenges? Do you want to gain the inspiration to truly live victoriously? I encourage you to read about the journey of a young orphan girl who goes on to become one of the first women presidents in Africa. Long Walk Up

The 1940s was a pivotal period of change. World War II ensued. Anne Frank scribed her diary. The dead sea scrolls were discovered. The ball point pen went on sale. Microwave ovens and polaroid cameras were invented. Duke Ellington and his orchestra filled the air with sweet music. This is the time of Spiral.

When you enter the story that is Spiral, you step inside Greasy Plank, a small town in Memphis, Tennessee. It's the changing 1940s. Jazz and the thirst for peace are big. So too are the secrets Greasy Plank keeps. See what's behind the veil of secrecy in this Memphis town - Spiral!

Denise's New Writing Tip: Take a "no" or a "not now" to writing that you submit to editors and publishers for what it is. It is not a criticism of you as a person. We are not equipped to judge each other as human beings. We don't even fully know ourselves! So how could we judge someone else! When you receive a "no" or a "not now" to what you write, see if you can receive that feedback as a specific editor or publisher giving you their response. They are not speaking for every editor and every publisher. Bottom line, I encourage you not to allow a "no" or a "not now" from 1 or even 1,000 editors or publishers to define how YOU feel about YOUR work and especially how you feel about YOU. You are far too valuable and have far too much to contribute as an artist to allow a "no" or a "not now" to hold you back. Live boldly! Write with passion and courage!
