For Immediate Release

September 4, 2014

May we grab your attention, please? 

Join us for “Book Talk” at the Hyannis Public Library at 6 p. m. on Wednesday, September 24, 2014 when we welcome author Ric Wasley. Mr. Wasley, an accredited member of the Mystery Writers of America and Cape Cod Writers, will talk about researching for and writing his Civil War novel entitled Candle in the Wind.

Ric Wasley has utilized his 40-year career in publishing and marketing to enter the digital age of publishing and he has successfully written in many genres -- including mystery, historical romance, and paranormal -- that have received consistently high ratings from customers of Barnes & Noble and amazon.com

Candle in the Wind is set in 1863 on Cape Cod. Fiona Dawes has been struggling to keep the family farm going for two years since her husband, Jeptha, enlisted in the Union Army.  Now Jeptha has been reported missing and presumed dead, but Fiona refuses to accept the horrific news. She determinedly travels from Massachusetts to New York to Gettysburg to search for her husband, but it seems that someone wishes harm upon Fiona, Jeptha, and their young child.

Candle in the Wind, with its local setting, was meticulously researched and accurately depicts the hardship of life during the War Between the States.  This book was short-listed for a 2014 Electronic Publishing Industry Coalition Award.

New York Times Bestselling author William Martin (Back Bay, Cape Cod, Lincoln Letter) calls Candle in the Wind “lively, evocative, and bursting with drama.”

The program is open to the public and is free of charge.  Copies of Candle in the Wind will be available for sale and signing.
