THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES GOES ON TOUR

THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES, written for both the adult and new adult markets, will be featured in the virtual book tour by Goddess Fish Promotions on Wednesday, August 28, 2013.  The hosts who will be discussing my book are listed below.  If you get a chance, do stop by and make a comment.  I will be checking in all day and will answer any questions you might have.

A brief description of The Cadence of Gypsies follows:

           

Dara Roux, abandoned when she was 7 years old by her mother.  Exceptionally gifted in foreign languages. Orphan.

Mackenzie Yarborough, no record of her parents or where she was born. Exceptionally gifted in math and problem-solving. Orphan.

Jennifer Torres, both parents killed in an automobile accident when she was 16. Exceptionally gifted in music and art.  Orphan.

Three high-spirited 17 year olds, with intelligent quotients in the genius range, accompany their teacher and mentor, Carolina Lovel, to Frascati, Italy, a few weeks before they are to graduate from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women.  Carolina’s purpose in planning the trip is to remove her gifted, creative students from the Wood Rose campus located in Raleigh, North Carolina, so they can’t cause any more problems (“expressions of creativity”) for the headmaster, faculty, and other students – which they do with regularity.  Carolina also wants to visit the Villa Mondragone where the Voynich Manuscript, the most mysterious document in the world, was first discovered and search how it is related to a paper written in the same script she received on her 18th birthday when she was told that she was adopted – a search, more dangerous than she could have imagined, that will fill in all of the missing pieces of her past and help each of her students to discover something meaningful within themselves.

AMAZON SELECTS THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES FOR ITS 2013 LIST OF BEST BOOKS

THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES, written for both young adult and adult readers, has been selected by Amazon for its “2013 List of Best Books.” This is especially nice since it was totally unexpected.

A brief description of THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES is as follows:

Three high-spirited 17 year olds, with intelligent quotients in the genius range, accompany their teacher and mentor, Carolina Lovel, to Frascati, Italy, a few weeks before they are to graduate from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women. Carolina’s purpose in planning the trip is to remove her gifted, creative students from the Wood Rose campus located in Raleigh, North Carolina, so they can’t cause any more problems (“expressions of creativity”) for the headmaster, faculty, and other students – which they do with regularity. Carolina also wants to visit the Villa Mondragone where the Voynich Manuscript, the most mysterious document in the world, was first discovered and search how it is related to a paper written in the same script she received on her 18th birthday when she was told that she was adopted – a search that will take them into the mystical world of gypsy tradition and magic, more dangerous and exciting than any of them could have imagined.

The storyline is woven around the ancient Voynich Manuscript and the mysterious Kaulo Camioes, black gypsies, in a contemporary setting that takes place between Raleigh, North Carolina, and Frascati, Italy. All of the facts concerning the Voynich are accurate, as are the facts relating to gypsy customs, beliefs, and practices. The story itself is fiction.

I had a tremendous amount of fun researching the Voynich, as well as gypsies for whom I have a new-found respect and understanding. If you get a chance to read THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES over the summer, I would love to hear what you think of it.

Barbara Casey,Author/Literary Agent, Will Read from her Latest Novel, THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES

I will read from my latest novel, THE CADENCE OF GYPSIES, on Saturday, February 25, starting at 1 pm, at the Chatooga County Library in Summerville, Georgia. The public is invited.

CADENCE OF GYPSIES Summary:
On her 18th birthday Carolina Lovel learned that she was adopted and was given a letter written in an unknown language left to her by her birth mother. After years of research she travels to Italy on a mission to find the truth about her past. Carolina is accompanied by three extremely gifted but mischievous students—the FIGs—from Wood Rose Orphanage and Academy for Young Women. In an effort to help their favorite teacher, the FIGs will have to use their special abilities to decipher the Voynich Manuscript, the most mysterious document in the world and the one thing that is strangely similar to what Carolina was given as a child. Their search will take them into the mystical world of gypsy tradition and magic, more exciting and dangerous than any of them could have imagined.
