“Pursuit of the Golden Lily” is a new novel by R. Emery, inspired by her father's WWII POW diary. Initially documenting the author's journey to return the diary to Thailand where it was written, the Blog now follows her experiences as she self-publishes, launches the novel and reflects on topics woven into the narrative.

First Book Club Review!

The first Book Club reading of Pursuit of the Golden Lily was successful! Ten ladies from Naples, Florida participated. They loved the book and had lots of questions! 
The novel is not yet published, but these fans were willing to print it so they could be the first readers! I am very grateful to Ruby and Sugar Rubin, who made all this possible. Due to my current work commitments I have had to delay my actual publishing date for a month, however, if you are part of a book club, or know of someone who is, please let me know and I will be sure to contact you the minute the book is available.

Ruby created a wonderful photo presentation that allowed the readers to journey with us into the book! If your book club would like to include this presentation too, we're open to possibilities - especially if you are in Florida, Maine, Quebec or Manitoba... or anywhere else for that matter!
Writing a novel and being able to jump into the story in real life has been an incredible experience! Stay tuned... the book will be available soon.
