Dreams by Ty Keenum

Ty Keenum’s “Dreams,” is a poignant short story penned by an author whose own life eerily mirrors the tragic narrative, and delves deep into the realms of shattered dreams, betrayal, and the perilous descent into madness. The tale unfolds with a melancholic charm, exploring the blurred lines between fiction and reality as it chronicles the life of its protagonist, a seasoned writer who faces a series of devastating setbacks.

The narrative skillfully blurs the boundaries between the protagonist’s life and the stories he creates, drawing readers into a world where imagination and actuality intermingle in unsettling ways.

Out of the Delta – The Anthology by Zeek Taylor

The book is full of detailed and colorful real-life stories of life in the 50’s and 60’s in northeast Arkansas. You’ll laugh and sometimes cry as Zeek reveals the joys and tribulations of life growing up in the Delta during that time. Out of the Delta transports you back to a time before Smartphones and the internet – a time when kids picked cotton to make money, when folks “visited” with each other on their back porches and when news traveled faster than modern high-speed internet could ever provide.

The Crystal Palace by Ty Keenum

A child prodigy, a gospel sensation, a redeemed libertine, and a beautiful Evangelical superstar all bring challenges and rewards in diverse ways. As the Elders work tirelessly to promote the message, they are challenged to keep the public’s focus on the ministry and not their own private lives. Fortunes are threatened when a Sunday service reveals far more than the congregation could have ever anticipated. Can the Elders keep the ministry above water and their secrets buried?

Reviews:

  • The Crystal Palace begins where The Little Church in the Valley ends and serves up many of the same characters and a host of new comical situations. Author Ty Keenum knows the world of evangelism inside and out, and his insights translate into well-defined characters and an intriguing plot.
  • Seldom is a sequel better than the original, but in this case, Keenum managed the darn near impossible. Crystal Palace is the perfect follow up to Little Church in the valley.
  • A witty and intelligent look at the circus that organized religion all too often turns into; The Crystal Palace is somehow even better than Little Church in the Valley.
