NANCY BRANDON ANNOUNCES PUBLICATION OF “SHOW ME A KINDNESS”

                       Local author Nancy Brandon announces the publication of her second novel, “Show Me a Kindness” (Lake Union).
The story, set in Vidalia when the namesake onion was discovered during the Great Depression, follows Marthanne Hendrix as she realizes another personality, Oma, inhabits her body and as she desperately hides her mental illness to avoid confinement to an asylum.
Brandon will celebrate the book’s release and its connection to the onion with two events. A book signing will be held during the Vidalia Onion Festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Apr. 29 at the Vidalia Onion Museum, 100 Vidalia Sweet Onion Dr. A book talk, “Vidalia: Making a Place in Popular Fiction,” and a reading will be held at 5:30 p.m. on May 18 at the Vidalia-Toombs County Library, 610 Jackson St.
Her inspiration for “Show Me a Kindness” was Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker’s autobiography, “Breaking Free: My Life with Dissociative Identity Disorder,” which describes his life with the condition formerly known as multiple personality disorder.
Brandon’s first novel, Amazon Kindle bestseller “Dunaway’s Crossing” (Lake Union) was the finalist for the 2013 Georgia Author of the Year Award. Set in rural Georgia in 1918 during the Spanish influenza pandemic, the plot draws on Brandon’s great-grandparents’ move from Hawkinsville to the country to avoid contagion.
A graduate of the University of Georgia with a bachelor’s degree in English education, Brandon received a master’s degree in English from Georgia Southern University and returned to the University of Georgia to earn a Ph.D in English education. She has taught English at Armstrong State University for 24 years.
Brandon is a frequent contributor to Savannah magazine. She has served as a judge for the Georgia High School Association’s state literacy competition and is an advocate for DEEP Center, a nonprofit that supports young writers. She was awarded the Arthur M. Gignilliat, Jr. Professorship at Armstrong State University in 2004 for her proposal to enhance teaching and learning at the university and to enhance Armstrong’s connection to the community. The university’s Student Government Association presented her with the H. Dean Propst Outstanding Faculty Award for 2005-06 and she was named Teacher of the Year in 2006 by the Georgia Council of Teachers of English. She has written guest blogs for The Writer’s Guide to E-Publishing and for romance novelist Mimi Barbour. Brandon is a member of the Georgia Council of Teachers of English, the Georgia Writers Association and the Indie Book Collective.
Paperback, audio and Kindle versions of “Show Me a Kindness” are available on Amazon.com.
