A Voice From the Grave First Quarter Sales Through the Roof

A Voice From the Grave Audio Book

Brook Forest Voices is pleased to announce that the first quarter numbers are in for the 2012 First Place CIPA EVVY award winner A Voice From the Grave. In one month alone this audio book sold almost three hundred copies.

“A Voice From The Grave” is one of the best civil war mysteries that I have ever read. Ms. Mason’s writing has the ability to transport the reader into the story to a point where one can almost see, hear, and feel what is happening. She does an incredible job of blending the past and present and doesn’t leave the reader confused or wondering what happened. One of the reasons that I really enjoyed this mystery is because I could not pre-guess the ending. I could not put this book down until I had finished it. I was surprised and delighted with the conclusion. The only “spoiler” I will give is that this is one of the first books concerning civil war prisons that I’ve read that has a female as a character. I will not say more so I do not give away any more spoilers but it is well worth reading. I highly recommend this to anyone that likes history, mysteries, or just a well-written book” By Lasla Moore

 

“Yvonne Mason does it again! From the compelling cover, through the historical accuracy and on to her carefully-woven mystery, Mason grabs the reader and doesn’t let go. History buffs will be pleased with the factual descriptive drama of a time and place of shame in our country’s past. Who hasn’t heard of the terrible, evil Andersonville? And who doesn’t wonder about the spiritual unrest of those who suffered and died horribly there? Get your copy of this audio book and be prepared to be thrust back into the time of the American Civil War, then brought forth to the present-day mystery. You will not want to turn it off.” Holly Fox Vellekoop

 

This review is from: A Voice from the Grave (Paperback)

This book, by Yvonne Mason was a mesmerizing read. Bouncing from the present day back to the days of the Civil War. The graphic words describing the hell hole which was known as Andersonville Prison was enough to put the reader right there in those circumstances, shivering with the horror suffered by the armies of this country’s greatest and bloodiest war. Families ripped apart and asunder often with no word of the fate of loved ones.

The mysterious and ghostly visitations leading the characters through a maze of confusion and eerie denial of the possibility of life after death to a die hard believer in such things as he and his niece, Savanna go on the hunt of their lives for the answers to the puzzle posed by the unearthing of two skeletons found at a dig they were working at the old Andersonville Prison. We go along with them as the secrets are unveiled, feeling the whisper of those gone beyond at the turning of every page.

The end was a pleasant surprise to me after an edge of the seat build up..I couldn’t have asked for better.
Yvonne is a very descriptive writer who reaches out to her readers and takes us with her into the web that snares us and brings us along. This is an in depth tale of the suffering of those who fought and gave the last full measure of devotion, and the families who came down through the years to breathe life into their legacy. Excellent read that won’t disappoint.

The Votes are in and Have Been Counted!

A Voice From the Grave

The other day I wrote a post about my historical fiction A Voice From the Grave, it had been nominated for the CIPA EVVY award in Colorado. It was one of the six in the finals for audio books. The winner was announced last night. A Voice From the Grave won! Yes, it got first place. One of the requirements for submission was the author had to be an expert in the subject matter. Well, boys and girls it took four years of research of the civil war, a visit to Andersonville and many many days of writing to make this book happen. As I wrote this book I continued to doing research to make sure it was historically correct. The hard work paid off.

A Voice from the Grave won a very prestigious award for its content.

Which brings me back to those of you who refuse to read indie authors, shame on you. And those traditional publishers who turned me down for years, well, your loss. I have succeeded because of you not in spite of you. I made my own path, created my own destiny and did my own thing. I did this with blood, sweat, tears and rejections from all of you. I still won! I won because I had a network of people who believed as much in me as I believed in myself. I won because Brookforest Voices though my book was good enough to enter. I won because they believed A Voice From the Grave had merit. I won because traditional publishers didn’t believe I was good enough. To them I say Thank You. You helped me be the strong, single minded author I am today. You helped create my backbone and the ability not to take “No” for an answer. To my grammer school teachers who wouldn’t let me write because math was not my best friend, I thank you for taking that away from me. It also made me stronger and more single minded.

To my brother Stan who is challenged and the catalyst for my success, I say thank you for being who you are. Had it not been for your story I would never have picked up a pen again. This award is for you.

For all of you who read my books, believe in me and can’t wait for the next one what can I say, Thank you is not enough.

For those of you who felt it necessary to attack me and my work, my thanks go to you as well. You helped sell my books. What a compliment. You have no idea how I turned your negative comments to my advantage and it sent my book sales through the roof.

Brookforest Voices what can I say. You guys rock. Took took my book and made it real. You gave it a voice and then you turned it into a winner. You are my audio company and I sing your praises to the highest mountain and the lowest valley. Thank you does not seem quite enough!
