I stopped by Horizon Books yesterday and snapped a few photos of the book launch party for Richard Alan Hall’s “No Gray Twilights,” the third book in his “The Big Bay” series. The place was packed – that’s awesome – so I didn’t get a chance to introduce myself. Next book launch, Richard!
We haven’t had a chance to meet in person yet, but I love reading Richard’s inspirational notes on Facebook. They’re always filled with love, hope, joy, faith and friendship, and I look forward to seeing them every day.
From the book launch press release, I learned that Richard, who’s married to realtor Deb Hall, was born in Traverse City and grew up on a farm near Long Lake. For more than 40 years, he was a cardiovascular nurse specialist, and in June 2013, he released his first novel, “Remarkable,” which made the northwest Michigan bestseller list several times. His second novel and sequel, “Seldom As They Seem,” was released in June 2014 and became Horizon Books’ bestselling softcover novel for 2014.
He plans to write several more books. “By the end of my first novel, I knew there was going to be a series,” he notes. “Book three is complete and I just purchased 10 more ISBN numbers.”
Thank you for being a positive voice in our northwest Michigan community, Richard!
