I owe deep thanks to Deep South Magazine's editor Erin Bass for taking on an entire chapter of my new novel SOLEMN to publish in her Southern Voice section.
Because of information, images, stories and archives on the Internet, I was able to massage those old memories from the comfort of my own home (as opposed to daylong stints in the library, which I still love to have). I am quite sure I was able to go deeper into some topics and subjects because of online archiving. Furthermore, I was able to publish parts of the work online in outside venues, to cement the idea the book was real and not just a whim of my imagination.
