Local author Tamala Workman has released her first novel which is available now through amazon.com in both print and kindle formats.
Her novel is a historical romance fiction and the first book of a proposed series of three novels. A trilogy is quite an undertaking for one's first step into the field of authorhood.
Workman wished to do something a little different with her book's cover, which she also designed herself. She asked a young friend, Logan Allen Byard, who has plans of furthering his artistic talent after he finishes high school, to help create the artwork for the book's cover. Byard will have full permissions from the author and publisher to use the published art to build his portfolio when he begins applying to colleges or art institutes.
Workman’s first book is a historical romance fiction.
Workman is best known to her friends and family as Tammy, or by her school mates as Tammy Murner. She has been a volunteer and member of the American Legion Auxiliary for many years and currently serves as a Department of West Virginia officer and committee-person. She holds her membership with Marne Unit 28 in New Martinsville, where she is also a member and officer in her unit as well as with the American Legion Riders chapter of Post 28. Workman is also a member of the West Virginia Patriot Guard Riders. She has two sons and two young grandsons who reside in Sistersville, which isn't too far away from her home in Pine Grove.
Book signings have been scheduled around the area with Workman and her novel "Call of the Dove." She will be supporting the Bonnie's Bus Mobile Mammography Program at Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center with part of the proceeds from each of the signing locations listed below.
