Why I chose to name my book "The Little Rednecks"
Judging a book by it's cover or title
The Little Rednecks and a Town Full of Bullies
is about four physically challenged middle
grade kids and the bullying they face due to their
disability. Their adventure takes place inside an
abandoned Coal Mine in a town called Murray
At one time, Murray City was the largest Coal
Mining town in the United States. The title of my
book is about discrimination, a stereotype and the damage it can cause.
My title is controversial. I know that. If you would like to learn more about the real
definition of the term "redneck", click here.
In parting: If you judge a book or a person by their cover, and in my case the title,
you just may be missing out on something really special and that is the real shame.
