James Michael Pratt’s
Once Upon a Time BookClub
I created my private Book Club to answer a question posed many times…
“Mr. Pratt, when are you going to write another book?”
A dilemma all authors face is getting the word out. If only I had a Bookmobile!
“If I Had a Bookmobile”
Once upon a time… I would pedal my bike as fast as I could when I heard that the “Bookmobile” – a large bus with a single aisle down the center and books stacked in shelves on either side – had parked at its usual spot in the Santa Susana Knolls area of the 1960’s California town I grew up in.
There in the “library on wheels” my imagination could take flight, and I could check out books to visit times and places I otherwise could never know.
Sadly, many thousands of bookstores and even libraries have shut down across the country in the past 20 years.
Like Bookmobiles, all those closed stores were places we could browse through bookshelves asking the question, “I wonder what’s a good read?”
My Book Club Goal is Simple
Staying in touch with readers, expanding the audience in a world of greater connectivity than our generation of Bookmobiles ever imagined, and providing the quintessential meaning behind "Once Upon a Time" is my objective.
My passion is writing, but not just anything. It is to produce magical, inspirational, and thoroughly engaging stories that make a difference to the reader when they finally reach "The End."
By signing up for the Once Upon a Time Book Club you get EXCLUSIVE deals as you enter my 1960’s personal world of the “Bookmobile” – but without having to pedal your bike up the hill!
