Two local authors signing in Mooresville
Two authors from the Salisbury area will be signing their books at the Local Author’s Showcase at Mooresville Public Library on July 29, 11 a.m.-1 p.m..
Sandra Eason will sign “Letters to Mildred,” a story about a caregiver and her client who is very hard to get along with.
Soon the tables turn and mutual love for one another develops. Mildred is deaf, so the only way of communicating is through letters. Through this communication, the character Katie tells a story of love, hardships and miracles. Although the story can be difficult, Eason says it has a happy ending that she hopes will console and change many lives.
Eason is a devout Christian who says God is her best, and at times, only friend. She raised three children, three grandchildren and has eight other grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
Signing with her will be Carol Watson of Linwood, whose new book is “Ocean Butterfly: A True Story of Surviving Domestic Violence.” It is her first work of non-fiction.
Her other books are “Hot Rock and Roll Nights,” “The Unforgettable Ballad” and “Metal Hearts,” all about a rock band and their experiences and the people they meet. Watson is a music fan and loves to go to concerts when she can.
This new book is about a painful part of her life she went through a few years ago. Eason’s book also deals with domestic abuse.
Watson’s first three books cost $12 each; the new book is $10. They will be available for sale at the signing or through Amazon.com.
Watson has been encouraged to write by the ability to self-publish her books, she said.
