Our guest blogger today is me. I want to tell you about my latest release, America: Her Hope for the Future, #1 in its category on This book is a reissue of Shades of Gray with a more positive theme.

I’m a multi-published author of nonfiction books, as well as over 200 articles and short stories published in more than 50 different publications. I teach at writers’ conferences and am a contributing writer to Christian Devotions Ministries (, an international daily devotional. If you’re reading this, you’re on my website/blog address. Visit any time.

From the book’s back cover

“Jo Huddleston takes a refreshing and healthy look at the virtues and lessons we learned from our past. The chapters on courage and patriotism show us that we can better understand the problems of the present and be prepared for the future if we take the time to apply the wisdom learned from our past.” –Bob Riley, former Governor of Alabama

From Jo

You know I can’t say nice things about my own book, so here’s another endorsement: “A challenging, inspiring vision for America. Jo Huddleston’s easy style of writing and her art of persuasion make readers of this inspiring work reflect on their lives with rededication and appreciation for the past. This excellent work can become a cornerstone for our homes, our cities, and our country. This book is the hard rock of ethical values.” –T. D. (Ted) Little, former Alabama State Senator, District 27.

From inside the book

"This patriotic book has an upbeat message that speaks to the heart about today's America. The book takes a good look at time-tested values needed to help smooth the rocky paths often encountered in relationships among people and countries."

  1. A positive outlook on the condition of our country right now would be good! This election is depressing me. I'm so sick of all the negative nattering going on out there. :P

    1. Pegg, I think this book will leave a better taste in your mouth than the "debates" and mudslinging we have been seeing on TV and reading. Thanks for leaving a comment and for reading my blog.
