Am working on Novel number 7. It is a sequel to the book "Gifted Hands" set in Nagasaki. The heart of the story is Keiko, the professional koto musician and wife of the American artist Charlie, has invited Charlie's daughter to join her on a concert tour. Charlie's daughter Jane plays the Native American flute. The sound is similar to the Japanese flute, the Shakuhachi. The shakuhachi is made of bamboo. The Native American flute is generally made of cedar. Both are played in a similar way. Keiko's agent is arranging a concert tour to begin in Japan and to end in America.
This novel will bring back some of the characters of earlier novels now in their middle age. Cliff and Angelina have children of their own. The entire family including Keiko and Charlie reunite in Denver. Kenneth Fenter

Well I'm running a day behind in announcing the winners of the book drawing. I'm here at my son's home in Idaho celebrating his 50th birthday so operating off my laptop. Had a little more problem finding the button to push to retrieve the names of the Arborwood Press FB "Likes". Finally late yesterday afternoon found it and began copying down the names. Finished up this morning. Now to cut them up, put them in a hat and have Lora draw out the lucky winners!
