More Alternative Truths, coming November 11, from B Cubed Press, is more than a book. It is people.
One of them is Susan Murrie Macdonald, co-author of “Donald, Where’s Your Taxes” in MAT and author of “As Prophesied of Old” in Alternative Truths.
Susan Murrie Macdonald was a fifth generation Republican – her great-great-grandfather voted for Fremont in 1856 and Lincoln in 1860 – but left the party on November 9, 2016, after DJT was elected. Susan can’t knit pink hats. She doesn’t have piles of money to donate to politicians. But she can write, so that’s what she did. Inspired by the words of Walt Disney, Toni Morrison, and H. G. Wells, Susan called upon others to join her in the CREATE Initiative. “Sing. Compose. Write. Perform. Draw. Sculpt. Blog. Remind Americans of our better selves. Remember our rights and responsibilities as citizens, lest those rights be washed away.”
“That’s what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again.” Walt Disney
“This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. That is how civilizations heal.” Toni Morrison
“Civilization is in a race between education and catastrophe. Let us learn the truth and spread it as far and wide as our circumstances allow. For the truth is the greatest weapon we have.” H. G. Wells
Thousands of miles away, Bob Brown and Phyllis Irene Radford were doing the same thing, so Susan was eager to submit a story to their anthology. She was pleasantly surprised (OK, shocked but delighted) when Alternative Truths shot to the top of Amazon’s bestseller list.
In addition to having a story in the first volume and a song in the second volume, Susan has been on the proofreading teams for both Alternative Truths and More Alternative Truths. She is a freelance proofreader and copy editor, who has worked with B Cubed Press, Norilana Press, and Gold Rush Publishing.
B Cubed Press is glad to have Susan Murrie Macdonald on board and looks forward to introducing you to the other writers who are going to make this volume a must-have.
