As a new member of the Cincinnati Fiction Writers, I was encouraged to offer the following:
I am looking for an experienced writer, preferably someone inclined toward Civil War genre. I am looking to have someone co-author with me to finish a historical fiction novel that has a lively historical story line and characters and is about 20% written. It is based around Cincinnati at the Civil War time using facts and factoids and is packed with potential for further creativity.
I am a 79 year old novice writer, father of 9 children and 22 grandchildren and I still work and run a company. I have been researching and developing this story for 5 years now, but time is so precious and I seem stuck and perhaps I am running out of time. A co-author format seems so very appropriate for me and my personality. If Steven King co-authors, that is impressive enough for me. Co-authoring is a fairly common procedure within the right circumstances.
