Author Phyllis Staton Campbell Announces a Contest Winner #Book #Promotion #Contest #NewsNuggets


Winner! We’ve got a Winner!

Some time ago, I announced a contest, asking people to guess the inspiration for my latest book, “Goin’ Home”. The prize, a choice of any of my digital books, available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goldtouch Press, Christian etc. The contest ran until we received a winner. Yesterday, we found him! John Pleasants of Virginia, guessed correctly, “The Green, Green Grass of Home.”

In the book, Bobbie Thomas, serving a life sentence for a horrific act of multiple murder, is returned to his home town to die of a heart condition. The little town is torn apart as its citizens take sides with Pastor Jim and Amy of “Where Sheep May Safely Graze” caught in the middle. Bobbie learns that the prison of guilt and the passing of time, can be more confining than prison bars.

In the song, the prisoner dreams of returning home to his Mama and Papa, and his sweet Mary. As the dream ends he sees “A guard and a sad old Padre” as he takes that last walk into eternity. Eventually his body will “lay neath the Green, Green Grass of Home.”

If you read the book, please comment. All opinions, good or not so good are welcome.

If you want to hear the song, check on line, through Amazon Echo, Google. Many artists have recorded it over the years.

Blessings, and congratulations, John.

See this, and all of my books

PS. I’m home and recovering.

Thanks to all for their well-wishes.
