If you’re fairly new here, you won’t know about the Tablescape post I’m referring to today. But those who have been readers for a few years may remember Merle Temple and his book, A Ghostly Shade of Pale. It was featured in a tablescape. Remember the Shades of Pale Tablescape?
I had so much fun with that tablescape. I remember placing guns on the table and everything hinting at Merle Temple’s job as an undercover agent. HH wanted me to remove the guns, so I did. Surely the drug dealers had guns, but they would have been concealed. They certainly wouldn’t have been left out on a table for dinner! Right?
One event in his book particularly stuck with me. Mr. Temple was involved with a drug gang/deal out in the country near Tylertown, MS. It was during the years my then high-school-aged brother hunted in that same area. He could have been nearby without knowing he was possibly in danger!
Also, the years Merle had “situations” at the University of Southern Mississippi bumped into my own years there. I just wonder…
Did I know anyone involved?
No one I knew (that I know of) was involved with drugs and dealing.
It just makes me wonder…
Wouldn’t you wonder about maybe some questionable characters?
Merle Temple has been very busy these last three years since my tablescape post. What am I saying? His entire life he’s been busy! But, I’m saying busy writing books since his retirement from a life of intrigue and danger.
He’s now the author of four novels, written as fiction but drawn from his life:
Deputy: Once Upon A Time in Mississippi
A Ghostly Shade of Pale
A Rented World
The Redeemed: A Leap of Faith
The books are used in many high school English classes, and Merle has just signed a contract with X-G Productions in Hollywood to develop a TV series from his novels.
Since he could use fresh reviews on Amazon right now, he is offering free Kindle eBooks to any of you who want to read the books and leave reviews on Amazon. If you are interested, please email Merle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I don’t know about you, but I can hardly wait to see the TV series when it comes out!!!!
What do you think? Any takers for some free Kindle eBooks?
