A message from the Author:

Hello, fellow readers,

As the author of the novel Sweetsmoke, I am thrilled that Bobbie is going to host a contest to give away a copy of the book, a hardback first edition that I will sign personally to the winner. 

Now isn’t this one of the great ironies of life:  In all the years I’ve spent on this planet, I have yet to win a contest.  Any kind of contest.  My sons win things all the time, contests, Little League baseball championships, elections.  And here I am, watching as Bobbie hosts a giveaway of my book.  I have to admit, I am enjoying it immensely.   

Best of luck to you all, and have fun.

Yours sincerely,

David Fuller

  2. The room blurred before his eyes and for a moment Cassius did
    not know where he was. Time stretched and at any other moment,
    he would have recognized his silence as dangerous, but at this moment
    time had little meaning as his head filled with voices from the



    This is a wish book for me. I have been reading alot of great things about this book. So its been on my To Buy list.

  3. “The sun would step into the sky and dry his trousers and the
    heat would gradually increase, unnoticed until he moved, when he
    would discover his body reluctant, leaden. He would beg for a rest.”

    The sun stepping into the sky is a great visual, never heard it put that way before. Beautifully said.

  4. “On the second floor, Ellen Howard read aloud to her servants a
    news story from a two-day-old copy of the Richmond Daily
    Whig, reliving General Lee’s victory at Gaines’ Mill, the third battle
    fought in as many days. She read dramatically, expecting her servant,
    Pet, and her daughter’s personal servants, Susan and Pearl, to be
    properly moved.”

    Thanks for offering this!

  5. “Loose skin draped off his jawbone, gray tufts spiked from the
    tops of his ears and inner caverns, his eyebrows curled into his eyes,
    and the backs of his hands wore a pattern of liver spots.”

  6. Yes, I’d like to win this book. In chapter one I found many great lines, I especially enjoyed the quote. I think your request thou is a line the author placed in the text, the line I chose: “He disliked being treated as if he were more than a slave when he knew so absolutely that he was not.” Wow, doen’t that give you a lot of insight to this character.
    Thank you for this give away!

  7. Mam Rosie showed no fear, she was high yellow
    and had privileges, but she was also conscious of the precise
    limits of her power.
    The lighter your skin, the more privieges you had. Still true today. I am fascinated in this time period and would dearly love to read this book.

  8. The children’s gardening chores were done, the butter churn put away, and
    the air was soft with moisture and sunlight and insects sawing,
    plenty of time on most days, but not today, as Mam Rosie was quick
    but not quick enough, and Andrew swung.

    This line is very descriptive. I can picture and see it happening.
