New York Times Best Seller List !

Town in a Strawberry Swirl made the New York Times Best Seller List for Mass Market Fiction!! We are number 20 on the printed list for Sunday February 23rd. The book is also number 20 on Barnes and Noble Mass Market Fiction list! 

There have been some other well know writers in Cape Willington, Maine.  I guess the most well known is the poet,  Sebastian J. Quinn. He is best known for The Bell of Chaos, his Pulitzer prize winning poetry book. He also wrote A Drop of Peace, which was a best seller for several months.
Sadly,  he is no longer with us after meeting his maker under a pile of pumpkins.

Then there was Darkness Raven. No one actually knew his real name, or what has become of him.
His poetry started a whole group of followers. I think his most well known book was From this Lighthouse Tower.

The only other well known writer I can think of is Fred Chevus. He made the Best Seller list with his non-fiction book on the impacts of the environment on the oceans, titled How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Waves. That was back in '02.  They still use that as a textbook at the Ocean Institute.

Cape Willington is a beautiful place to live. We are all inspired in some way by being here by the ocean.
Congratulations B.B. Haywood!!!
