New Author’s Novel Appeals to Nicholas Sparks Fans
Blind Tiger Press announces the publication of the novel “Some Glad Morning” by Gary C. Horton. Set along the coast of South Carolina during Prohibition, “Some Glad Morning”, has been enthusiastically embraced by the fans of Nicholas Sparks.
Lexington, SC January 2013 — Gary C. Horton and Blind Tiger Press announce the publication of his debut novel “Some Glad Morning”, a love story set in South Carolina during Prohibition.
“‘Some Glad Morning’ began as a love letter to my wife,” says Mr. Horton, a former intelligence officer turned novelist. “Actually, the story was inspired by the two great loves of my life. I can only hope I’ve done them justice.”
“I also wanted to capture the loneliness of a soldier,” Mr. Horton went on to say. “So I wrote about an Army private who, near the end of World War I, is left on the battlefield with several love letters when his commander dies. Private Ransom, in his loneliness, reads the letters and falls in love with the woman who wrote them. He comes home from war intent on winning her heart only to find he must compete with a wealthy suitor while evading a lustful widow and a sheriff with a tendency to shoot people.”
Already, the novel has been favorably compared to Nicholas Sparks’ books, particularly Sparks’ early work such as The Notebook, Message in a Bottle and Nights in Rodanthe. While Sparks’ books are typically set in North Carolina, “Some Glad Morning” takes place mostly along the coast of South Carolina, near Hilton Head. Blind Tiger Press has released a video trailer highlighting “Some Glad Morning” specifically for the fans of Nicholas Sparks.
A couple of obvious differences between “Some Glad Morning” and Nicholas Sparks’ books are the love triangle in Some Glad Morning and the happy ending. “I’m not one for tragic endings,” Mr. Horton said. “I want to leave the reader feeling better for having read my book.”
Anyone who enjoys Nicholas Sparks’ books is bound to enjoy “Some Glad Morning”. Actually, anyone who enjoys a good love story will enjoy “Some Glad Morning”. It’s a heartwarming novel that leaves the reader cheering. To watch the “Some Glad Morning” video trailer, please visit: http://www.authorslikenicholassparks.com.
