We at Pragamore Chronicles are extending an invitation to all book clubs, especially those interested in the Science Fiction/Fantasy genre.
If you are located in the Mid South (especially the Memphis area), and have book talks from local authors, I would be interested in coming to your area. My favorite authors are Edgar Rice Borroughs, Terry Brooks, Brian Froud, J. Tolkien, and Kapstick (action/adventure nonfiction). Also, as of late, I have taken a good grip on Signs and Seals by Graham Hancock - a nonfiction novel about the Arc of the Covenant.

M. R. Williamson
Pragamore -- A New Beginning
If some of your members are interested in fantasy (English folklore circa1250), then I believe you will love the Pragamore Chronicles.
I am M. R. Williamson -- a published poet and author who lives just south of Memphis. As of late, I have wanted to get more involved with a writing groups and book clubs. Along with working on the series below, I am also working with Tyree Campbell of Sam's Dot Publishing in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on individual poems and a series of children's books entitled Igon.
Pragamore -- A New Beginning was released in 2007. It chronicles the life of a young English boy who learns his late grandfather was a powerful wizard. With the influence of an outsider, the lad decides to go on a quest to find out more about his grandfather and just what it would take to fill his shoes.
Although it appeals to many older children, it is certainly is not a 'children's' book. We have readers from highschool age through young adult, and continuing through middle aged and older readers.
Krypendorf -- The Fourth Lesson is due to be released in April of 2009. It promises to add to the excitement of the series, Pragamore Chronicles, as well as expand the knowledge of the area and those involved. Adding this series to your book club would not only actively involve you with this author, but also would provide you with other opportunities such as our E-Fan addition.
We Need Your Pictures! Book Clubs ... send us your pictures and we'll post them on our web site, especially if you read the Sci-Fi-Fantasy genre. We also entertain questions on the Pragamore Series.
