Development Pitch

There are two underlying messages in Yellowstone’s Child. All my characters are human, so none is perfect. First, the reader will recognize mankind’s imperfection. None of us are infallible. Second, as the plot unfolds, the uncertainty and unpredictability of life is demonstrated several times in different ways. Since, as a Christian, I won’t use sex or violence to attract readers I opted for drama, plot reversals, and “the story” within the story to keep reader interest. One of my first readers complained: “Yellowstone’s Child made me cry five times, twice for sadness, and three times for joy.” It’s that kind of a story! It’ll make a great TV miniseries. If this story were a movie it would be rated “G” and is suitable for teens. It’s a GREAT read and doesn’t take long. Readers complain that they weren’t able to put it down once they got to Yellowstone National Park. One of my first readers complained: “Yellowstone’s Child made me cry five times, twice for sadness, and three times for joy.” It contains a timeline and a list of characters.
