Blog 1

Welcome to the new, official, Cassius Shuman author website!

The genesis for this website was born from the confluence of events surrounding the publication of my debut novel, “The Dead Boy’s Legacy.” The book is about missing children and child abuse. To further explain, the story is about a missing boy, the family who loves him and the predator who abducted him. A portion of the book’s sales will be donated to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. (You can find the NCMEC banner at the bottom of this page.) I will let you know on this website, Twitter and Facebook, when my publisher, Booktrope Editions, will be launching my novel, and when it will be available for purchase at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes, among other venues.

In the meantime, I hope that you will check back to read my blog, comment, check for upcoming events, or send a message. I can’t promise to reply to each and every message that I receive, due to my extremely busy schedule, but I will do my best to read your query and correspond. Believe me; I value your thoughts and comments.

I would like to thank Lori Culwell and Katherine Fye Sears for their assistance with the development and evolution of my website. We’ve come a long, long way since I first purchased my domain name. I must say, it’s nice to have a little piece of the worldwide web all to myself. So, Lori and Katherine, I appreciate all of your invaluable input and advice. Thank you for taking the time to hold my hand throughout this process. By the way, look for Lori and Katherine’s new marketing book aptly entitled, “How to Market a Book,” to be released at the end of February. It is a brilliant book, well worth the read that I highly recommend. Also, a very special thanks to Evan Kanouse III for designing my website. Nice job Evan!

I will begin blogging in the coming days and weeks. I look forward to sharing the written word with you. Thank you for visiting my new website!

All the Best,
Cassius Shuman

I also recommend 2 books written by 2 talented authors, Tess Hardwick (Riversong) and Marni Mann (Memoirs Aren’t Fairytales). You can find their books on their websites:

FYI: This website is still under construction, so please bear with the growing pains. Like they say, Rome wasn’t built in a day!
