The Boys in the Brazos River Bottom is the title of a new novel written by Peter Scamardo. Peter is self-publishing this family drama that revolves around an Italian-Americanfarming family in Central Texas. Set in the Summer of 1969, the novel will take readers back in time as the author shares stories from his own family’s experiences.
The author is a Texas native and currently a sports reporter at the Victoria Advocate newspaper, the second oldest newspaper in the state.
To introduce this novel to the world, Peter Scamardo has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, where he is welcoming generous support and backing. All funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will be used to cover the cost of obtaining an ISBN for both print and e-book formats, obtaining copyright, designing a book cover, receiving formatting for print and e-book styles, and editing costs, etc.
“My grandparents created a family in Mumford, a small town in Central Texas that barely exists anymore and as I was growing up, I heard many stories from them that I recorded.” Said Peter Scamardo, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “Before starting to write this book, I started recording conversations, asking questions about growing up in the country, what they ate, wore, how they got into trouble, what they listened to on the radio, as much as I could ask to try and paint a picture.”
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/peterscamardo/the-boys-in-the-brazos-river-bottom-a-novel and backers from around the world can become a part of this project by making generous pledges and donations. Moreover, the goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to raise a sum of US$ 2,000 and Peter is offering signed copies of his book as a reward for the backers. Furthermore, more details are available on the Kickstarter campaign page of the project.
