Hill and Query to sign ‘romantic’ novel Aug. 17

SALISBURY — Authors Loyd E. Hill and Marvin R. Query will be at the Literary BookPost on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 1-3 p.m. They will be discussing and signing their new novel, “Reap The Wild Seeds.”
Hill is the author of “17 Things That You Should Or Should Not Do In the Bridge Game.” This is his first novel with co-author Query. In a Post story on July 13, Hill said Query started “Reap the Wild Seeds” years ago and he helped him edit and expand the novel.
It is a romantic novel about a young Marine and an Army nurse set during the Vietnam War. Hill describes the novel as a beautiful love story that tells the story of three siblings separated for 15 years after the death of their mother. The orphans’ exploits reach far beyond their humble beginnings in the mountains of North Carolina.
The book, published through Xlibris, is available online as well, and as an e-book.
For more information contact the Literary BookPost at 704-630-9788.

Wiley Cash talks about “A Land More Kind than Home” on “North Carolina Bookwatch” at 11 a.m. Wednesday on UNC-MX and at 5 p.m. Thursday on UNC-TV.
Gastonia native Cash exploded on to the national literary scene with his debut novel, “A Land More Kind than Home.”
His readers meet a storefront, snake-handling preacher who turns out to be one of the most complicated and interesting villains ever encountered in fiction.
Reacting to this pastor, one member of the congregation says, “I’d seen people I’d known just about my whole life pick up snakes and drink poison, put fire up to their faces just to see if it would burn them. Holy people, too. God-fearing folks that hadn’t ever acted like that a day in their lives. But Chambliss convinced them it was safe to challenge the will of God.”
The program will also air Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. on UNC-MX, (Time Warner 172 or 4.4). In addition, airing at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday on UNC-MX will be a classic “Bookwatch” program featuring Chuck Stone, author of “Squizzy the Black Squirrel.”
