Every story has to start somewhere...

Image
    When I was shopping around the Winged Child manuscript, a publisher over the water read it and exclaimed "At last, a story that begins at the beginning." They promptly offered a contract and the only reason they didn't get the book was that by the time they read the manuscript and responded, I'd received and accepted an offer from my current publisher, Creative James Media . Sometimes, the beginning (or even the end) of a story is hard to pin down, because no story that is read or lived stands alone. Every story is a story within a story, exists in an endless chain of narratives. There's always a back story, a prequel and a sequel, if not written, at least implied and hinted at in the tale one is reading currently. As for this novel, The Winged Child begins- well, watch the video and I'll tell you.  Henry's books .

The morning road...

Now let us take the morning road that leads far from the town, With hopeful hearts and lightened load, Go walking up and down; By field and wood and singing stream We’ll seek that holy ground Where spirits speak and mortals dream Until we all are found. - The Winged Child, Henry Mitchell (publication date: 22 February 2022)   Pre-order now.

Still...

"But she was still Millicent McTeer and she could walk as well as she could fly, and some miles ahead along this benighted road were people she knew and loved with a mutual affection. Wherever she had been, she was going home. She didn’t know if the prospect made her happy or sad, but upon reflection, it satisfied her longing soul." -The Winged Child, February 22, 2022 Pre-order now. Henry's books .
