Thanks for the note! Please join the discussion in Ellen's Entries.



This harmonious utensil fascinates with two of its properties. The first is an unearthly magical normal, and the second is its elementary principle for constructing a scale. The notes are selected in such a behaviour pattern that playing it, it is unresolvable to fake, that is, EVERY ONE MAY ACT ON THE GLUCOPHONE. This gismo has varied names. In Russia, the respect “glucophone” has captivated root. Many people, the elementary lifetime they catch a glimpse of and hear it live, are amazed at its sound, but when they recognize the moniker, they giggle or sight at inconsistencies, saying how such a magical and unusual tool can have such a frivolous name. We without exception explanation: “But Gluck in German is HAPPINESS …”
A glucophone is a percussion petal drum with harmoniously or melodically tuned notes. For that reason, all can join in it. Playing the glucophone not exclusive fascinates but also gives an emotional spot! Assume a living soul on all occasions wanted to learn how to depict some harmonious instrument … and infuriating to cause trouble the glucophone, he succeeds and one succeeds, you upright should prefer to to want to hear it!

Enjoyed meeting you in Sun City, yesterday. It was especially fun to hear the ‘stories’ behind the story. Thank you
for sharing how you selected the book cover. LOVED your book and look forward
to the next one! In the meantime, I am telling all of my friends to read, Untying the Moon.

I purchased 2 seats for your event at the Sonesta Resort. I am looking forward to hearing you speak with
Pat Conroy! I will be purchasing your book there. Wishing you all the best! As they say on Broadway “break a leg!” Really!?! Don’t. Have a great “coming out ” party as an author! Love and best wishes to You!

Ellen- I read the Island Packet as a “longing to be citizen” of the low country. From that article about the release of your book, I have now been introduced to you. The only work I have read of your’s was the the tribute to James Dickey which was linked by that same article. I look forward to a deeper introduction by reading your novel. Peace to you and take care.

I am so looking forward to Untying the Moon. I know I will be unable to separate the delicious southern grace of the author I know from that of the protagonist. I’m glad you are going to share your wonderful spirit with the greater world in this way.

Love always,
