The Night Sky: A Journey from Dachau to Denver and Back

     Ask any bestselling author what the most important marketing tool is for selling a book and they’ll exuberantly proclaim BLOGGERS!   That’s why I was thrilled when Katie Sue invited me to do a comment on her blog for The Night Sky:  A Journey from Dachau to Denver and Back.  Awesome bloggers like Katie Sue can do amazing things for first-time authors like me.

    The Night sky is my first book and I wrote it because many people told me it was an extraordinary and inspiring story that could encourage other people to pursue their hopes and dreams.  The overall message in this book is about never giving up, and seeking so you can find.  The story has a little something for enthusiasts in all genres:  History, Genealogy, Mystery, WWII, Germany, Poland, and Ukraine -- but for me, it’s a tragic love story.  I wrote the book from a special place in my heart, and I wanted readers to see, hear, smell, touch, taste, and, most importantly feel what I saw, heard, touched, tasted and felt.   One of my reviewers wrote that sometimes the honesty in the book was almost too painful to bear.  I will admit I cried when I wrote some of the sections in the book, but I knew it was my story, and it may not evoke that same emotion in readers who don’t know me.  It has been gratifying to find that readers have shared my pain and my joys – and that’s the best validation for which any writer could hope.

    Thank you, Katie Sue for giving me the opportunity to comment on your Blog.  The full product description can be found by searching for “Maria Sutton” on, or:
