Ghost On Black Mountain Author Ann Hite Praises Internet Writers Workshop

Now and then the backstory about a book and it's author arrives in my email. A promising new book, Ghost On Black Mountain, published by Gallery Books (Simon & Schuster) and its author, Ann Hite, is the latest. (Available at Amazon, Borders and Barnes and Noble.)

Author Ann Hite said
"Ghost On Black Mountain hit the bookstores running yesterday ;). Book launch was wonderful and 92 copies of the book sold. Publication has been a long time coming."
Hite has been a member of Internet Writers Workshop, a premier writers online critique and support list, for many years. She praised list members highly, and singled out prolific short-story author, Wayne Scheer, author, Rick Bylina,  and author and instructor, Carter Jefferson.

Ann said, "When I stood in front of the crowd yesterday, I couldn't help think[ing] of all the crits my Black Mountain stories received [on IWW]. Thank you all."
Ghost On Black Mountain will be the alternate pick for the month of October at the following book clubs: Doubleday Book Club, Literary Guild, Mystery Guild, and Doubleday Book Club LP, not to mention Columbia Music.

Atlanta Magazine will publish an interview with Hite in their October issue, and Western North Carolina Magazine will review Ghost On Black Mountain, also.

Hite busy schedule for the next two months shows her willingness and ability to promote her book, as all authors are committed to doing in today's publishing world. A whirlwind of book signings and writing conferences in Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi and Tennessee, plus and online conference will keep her novel in the limelight as she climbs the ladder of success.
