The story of a remarkable life, if i must say so myself

https://www.amazon.com/Diane-DeVillers/e/B00BWY3Q9K Three stories of a woman coming of age in the wilds of the Wallowa Mountains in eastern Oregon, where Eve lives in her tent in a camp with five other foresters doing timber inventory for the Forest Service.

I found my journals from when I first moved to Oregon and sat reading them and chuckling to myself and I thought “these would make a great story” and so I started writing the three books in one paperback book. Check out my author page: https://www.amazon.com/Diane-DeVillers/e/B00BWY3Q9K

How I market my paperback book by using blogs

I am an author and just published my first book of a fictionalized memoir called ‘The Eve Chronicles” by Diane DeVillers. I self-published it and ncover frontThe Eve Chronicles cover (2)eeded a way to market the book and so I have nearly 20 social media accounts where I post ten or more posts about all kinds of subjects, like links to stories about strong women, or politics, animals, place in the world. Then every dozen of those posts I put in a link to my book page on amazon.com. I opened others wordpress, live journal, wordpress, MS Connection, digg, worldpulse an international women’s blog and many others. So I signed up to get emails from sites I like, women’s news sites, animal sites explore.org where they have animal cameras set up, and I take these posts and write a short blog about them and then post it, then find a picture in my computer or to pixaby where you can get free pictures. It takes lots of time but it drives people to my site. I also made my own webpage on wix.com where my books are listed. Check out my author page

Its three books in one paperback book ‘The Eve Chronicles” or if you like ebooks look for “From the waters of Coyote Springs” ‘Felix and Eve” and “The Arrangement” they tell the story of a young women who leaves her life in Wisconsin and goes to Oregon to work as a forester doing timber stand inventory for the Forest Service. The group of 5 foresters live in their camp with trailers and tents down by Coyote Springs in the Wallowa Mountain in eastern Oregon. The men in the crew tease Eve relentlessly but it doesn’t take long before they call her “Queen of the Comeback”  “Felix and Eve” is when she moves to the coast and lives in Gold Beach with an elderly man who needs a caregiver for the summer as he recovers from by-pass surgery. He’s a cranky old dude but he takes a shining to Eve, they play cards every night and he tells her about his former life when he worked for the notorious gangster Al Capone back in the day.  “The Arrangement” ebook is about the now-retired Eve who has bought property on Moon Mountain in Eugene, Vinnie her neighbor, whom she let set up his yurt in her backyard. Vinnie is in love with Eve but remains silent. Every year Eve gets the same letter with a skeleton key in it. She takes off down south to Catalina Island and cares for her former lover who has a debilitating disease called Multiple Sclerosis. She stays there for the summer while Sid’s wife takes a much-needed vacation. Sid and Eve reminisce about their past.  As you can tell I am still on my shameless self-promotion tour.

Three books in one paperback book, “The Eve Chronicles” by Diane DeVIllers is the journey taken by a self reliant woman in the early 80’s,when she moves west to work as a timber cruiser for the forest service, working all day doing timber inventory in the remote Wallowa Mountains. She camps with a group of mismatched foresters who are mainly men who tease her relentlessly, and before long she has the nickname Queen of the comeback.

When Eve moves to the Oregon coastal town of Gold Beach she becomes a caregiver for an elderly man who is recovering from bi-pass surgery. She spends the summer with the cantankerous Felix and yet although from two very different generations, they become friends. Every night he tells her stories as they play cards in the screened in  porch. He tells her stories about the good ole days when he worked for Al Capone the notorious gangster in Chicago during prohibition.

Felix is very set in his ways and Eve is a go with the flow, of the counterculture generation. See what happens when they develop a very different relationship than either one of them would have expected.

“The Arrangement” is the now retired baby boomer Eve who has settled down and bought property on Eugene’s Moon Mountain. Vinnie, her long time friend, lives in a yurt in her back yard. Every year Eve gets the same letter with a skeleton key in it which takes her down to Catalina Island under a special arrangement,where she spends the summer with her former lovers who has the debilitating form of Multiple Sclerosis.  Vinnie remains on her estate as caretaker, tending to her gardens. Vinnie is in love with Eve but remains silent.
