N.W. Boyer…A Year of Writing in 2017

nancyboyer1.jpg

This year has been an exciting one for me.  I have had the opportunity to interview many people for my books and actually seeing the books go to print.  Today I would like to share with you my 2017 books that followed my books for children in previous years.

(The links are in blue.)

One of my most recent books, SPENCER’S MILL, is fiction set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.  It is a cast of characters with an exciting plot that incorporates the history of the decline and failure of mill industries in North Carolina and Virginia when those businesses went to other countries around the world, leaving people without jobs.  It is the story of their strength to carry on and find enriched lives for themselves.

OLD TIMERS OF THE BLUE RIDGE

Old Timers of the Blue Ridge is a series of interviews with people who have relatives that go back to the Civil War.  The stories they shared are interesting reading and gives insight into the cultures of the mountain people.  They tell of what it was like to grow up in the Blue Ridge…their joys and sorrows.

CIVIL WAR RE-ENACTMENTS   This book, North and South at the Blue Ridge Mountains, gives a short overview of the Civil War and the leaders from both sides. It explains the Reenactment that takes place yearly in October in the mountains of Virginia, near Ararat, VA.  I included a large selection of photographs of the reenactment which gives a beautiful description of this event. Men and women dress the part of the period. The main goal of the Civil War Reenactors is to not forget the history of our country.

THE SEEDS       This novel originated from a post on my blog that I wrote in 2010 on Boyer Writes  It was on SS General Hans Kammler and asked the question: “Whatever happened to Gen.Kammler?”  After World War II, a number of high-ranking officers fled to places like Argentina. This question seemed to be of great interest to my readers. Some readers wrote emails that they knew where General Kammler had lived. One even said the General was an uncle who was elderly and had escaped prosecution. General Kammler, as portrayed in this book is entirely fiction. The accounts of him, however, are based on historical facts. General Kammler, was in fact from 1944, head of advanced weapons development in Nazi Germany, including the Me-262 jets, the V-2 rockets and perhaps even the exotic Bell Project. The enormous interest in General Kammler led me to explore the thoughts of where he might be hiding and thus, this novel evolved. All characters are fictional, but many of the places described in the novel, as the World Seed Vault in Norway, sometimes referred to as the “Doomsday Seed Vault” are actual places.

I look forward to 2018 when I plan to complete a Memoirs Book called MY STORY.  I will begin with as early as I can remember in my childhood.nancy as a babybw 6x9

My remembrances of my days in boarding school and the courage that I found in my faith in Christ during years of adult hardship will be an honest and open account.  My family history and doors that opened for me to travel the world as a Christian teacher and missionary will also be part of the story.  The joy that I found when God brought into my life the husband I have loved for over 35 years is a part of “waiting for God” to do wondrous things that we know not of.  Looking back I know that the things that happened to me and around me were often most extraordinary.

It is obvious to me that everyone has a story to tell about their life.  As I have had the opportunity in the books mentioned above to share many stories told to me by others, it is time to write about my own life.

Merry Christmas to all my readers and to all a wonderful NEW YEAR!

Boyer Writes Begins a New Year of Writing…the Annual Report

It is our pleasure at Boyer Writes to share with you a portion of our Annual Report sent to us from WordPress for 2014:

“The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it”.     Readers from 126 countries around the world viewed our site.  We are fortunate to have readers like Stephen Liddell in England and Larry Gingery in Ukraine who write comments and share thoughts and encouragement.    Thanks, Stephen and Larry and over 100 people following Boyer Writes.   These years of writing have been some of my happiest and you will continue to hear from us as we are inspired in the areas of The Arts, History, Inspiration and much more.

In 2014, we wrote 106 new posts, growing our total archive for Boyer Writes  to 468 posts.

Our most read writing had to do with a mystery about World War II.

WHAT HAPPENED TO SS. GENERAL HANS KAMMLER?

SPECIAL NOTE by the author:   This blog has received the most hits world-wide than any of my other blogs, which may say something about the fascination that people have for history and the unknown facts of history.  People have commented that their relatives were somehow connected with General Hans Kammler, but can not prove such claims. Readers have argued back and forth concerning their claims…as I receive an email each time they comment.  What it matters all in all this many years later is probably of little consequence in that most of the criminals of the Nazi era are dying off even if they did escape the punishments that may have been due them. Regardless, the speculation goes on….and readers enjoy the mystery.  Thanks for reading and wondering. )  

This year, 2015, I plan to continue writing my historical fiction  using this interest in General Hans Kammler as a background for my book.  You will be the first to know when it is published.

Blessings to all and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

2015 New Year
