Ronnie Ray Jenkins shows his new book

Local author set for book signing this Wednesday

Local author Ronnie Ray Jenkins is launching his new book, Flowers of Reminiscence, with a book signing at Rainforest Books this Wednesday.

Local author Ronnie Ray Jenkins is launching his new book, Flowers of Reminiscence, with a book signing at Rainforest Books this Wednesday and says it is a novel that should appeal to a wide range of readers.

“It’s inspirational and it’s historically vivid. It’s the story of a woman who wakes up in a nursing home 1,000 miles from home and she doesn’t know how or why she is there. She finds a journal left for her by her mother in 1901, and when she visits the page in the journal I take the reader back to that point in her life. It’s the magic of the journl that helps heal her mind and answer her questions,” said Jenkins.

“This book makes a full circle of her life to the point where the beginning is almost the end.”

Published by the Larry Czerwanka Company, Jenkins is making the book available exclusively at Rainforest Books. During the signing, which runs from seven to nine p.m., $2 from every book purchased will be donated to the Salvation Army Food Bank as a way of giving back to the community.

“By doing this, I’m trying to pay things forward. I really believe in that,” said Jenkins.

“If we work together to do this little bit for each other, we can bring this town back to life. We can’t rely on the government to do it…It’s the people that make the difference.”

Jenkins says that there is a massive Internet marketing campaign slated for the book, and that there may be more in the works for the story.

“It’s being considered for a motion picture. The screenwriter is already halfway through and has only had it for a week,” he said.

“The foot is in the door for that.”
