First book signing at Poor Richards Bookstore in downtown Colorado Springs


Hello, I’m a new author and I blog about writing and its inspiration. I was fortunate enough to find an awesome publisher and my WWII historical fiction novel Why Aren’t You Sweet Like Me?? is now available from the Sunbury Press. Amazon and Barnes & Nobel now carry the print and eBook versions. I am currently submitting the YA fantasy ASHES & EMPIRES; as such, it has absolutely nothing to do with historical fiction…

Please “Like” Why Aren’t You Sweet Like Me?? on Facebook and follow me @carrienyman on Twitter to keep updated on developments. If you have any questions, please visit my website for my contact information. I’d love to hear your feedback.

Here’s a short description:
In the summer of 1939, Camille “Honey” Shaughnessy drives to St. Louis University, determined not to fall into the familiar pattern of date, marry, stay home with children and create a life of unfulfilled possibility, but she could not foresee falling for Don Shepard. Constructed from 130 letters of Don’s letters (dating from 1938 to 1944), telegrams, military records, and recorded interviews, Why Aren’t You Sweet Like Me?? is a historically accurate narrative, teaching what Don always said: “Love is the big thing.”

  1. Hi Carrie:

    Thanks for visiting my site, and posting a like. I enjoyed reading your blog and the issues that interest you as a writer. Many of this interest me as well and I try to cover issues such as free will, religion, power and beauty of English language, imagination, etc. through a variety of postings. You might enjoy reading the writing section of Bookshelf with eloquent and inspiring words from Faulkner and Fowles. Also, as a postscript to the Futility story that you liked, when you learn more about that novella, the interesting thing is that like any good story, it has as one of its narrative threads, a love story.

  2. Thanks for dropping by my blog and taking the time to press that ever present “like.” Your book looks fascinating.

  3. Carrie, I’ve really enjoyed following your journey and I’m finding you pretty darn inspirational. So I nominated you for a Kreativ Blogger Award. Keep up the good work.

  4. Congrats on your novel. I wish you success. Considering the subject of your novel, I think you might enjoy reading Jackeline Lockett’s novel PASIING LOVE, set in post WWII Paris.
    Enjoy the day.
