Telling Your Story: a Call for Personal Essays

Personal Essays

Everybody loves a good story; and, everybody has a story to tell. Some folks just need the right opportunity and perhaps a little encouragement to share it. That is the mission of the Personal Essay Publishing Project, a chance for both new and experienced writers to craft a story from their own lives and then to see their creative efforts around a common theme shared in print in a collective anthology.

The current project through mid-February 2018 takes its theme from the life of America’s pioneer hero, Daniel Boone, during an episode of his adventures 250 years ago in the winter of 1767/68.

One Drop A Slave!

New Book Available in 2018

The end of 2017 found Graphic Enterprises/Pioneer Times hard at work on book design again.

 Eddie Price author of Widder’s Landing completed his long awaited sequel entitled One Drop A Slave!

A frontier tale taking place in Kentucky in the early 1800s ,Price does an amazing job of mixing historic facts with his fictional characters.

From the lands of Craig Ridgeway’s Kentucky farm along the Ohio River to the bustling City of New Orleans and beyond Price examines slavery and those caught up in it’s clutches.

This is the second book designed for Price by Kathy Cummings editor of The Pioneer Times. The cover features a pen and ink drawing of steamboats by Kentucky artist John Ward.

The book is now at the publisher’s with plans for it to be available for readers at many of the winter trade fairs listed above.

An 18th Century Christmas
at Fort Boonesborough State Park

Ever wonder what the settlers did for Christmas in the 18th Century. Interpreters in period dress shared the customs of many of the homelands that early settlers came from. The Irish, the English, the Germans, the Welsh, the Scottish and more were all represented with cabins decorated in the style of the times. Candle lanterns lit the fort on Friday night and on Saturday visitors could visit during the day. Father Christmas was present and stories of Sinterklaas and Saint Nicholas explained many of the origins of present day Santa Claus. The event was hosted by the Fort Boonesborough Foundation and also included music and refreshments of hot cider, hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. Photos now loaded!
