‘Voices of a Sandhills Baby Boomer’ now in digital format

Staff report

A 2013 novel by a Moore County man and former local sports editor is now available in electronic format.

Bill Lindau’s “Voices of a Sandhills Baby Boomer,” published in traditional print format by Azalea Art Press in November 2013, became available in e-form on Tuesday. On his personal Facebook page, Lindau seemed happy with the availability.

Lindau“Waited for this for a looooong time,” the author exclaimed.

The book is able to be downloaded from Lulu.com for $4.99 plus 34 cents in tax. That’s a significant savings off the $14.95 cover price of the print edition. The novel is dedicated to his parents, the late William Edwin “Bill Sr.) Lindau and Mary Elizabeth “Betsy” Sanders Lindau, along with his big sister, Sara Lindau, among others.

“This spirited anthology by “Wild Bill” Lindau, comprised of poems, memoirs, a short story and a novella, gives us a taste of North Carolina history and Bill’s far-flung imagination — along with a healthy dose of irreverent humor,” according to a book summary on Amazon.com.

On Lulu.com, Lindau is described as an “artist, actor, musician and admitted baby boomer,” and known to his friends as “Wild Bill.”

Lindau, the summary continues, “has lived in the Sandhills of North Carolina since the age of 14. Bill’s writings have appeared in many regional publications. He is a passionate supporter of preserving local historical and literary resources. This collection brings together a sampling of Bill’s poetry, songs, memoir pieces and two short stories. This is his first book.”

Lindau2Lindau is a longtime writer. According to the book’s preface, written by former Daily Journal columnist Greg McNair, Lindau began writing book reviews under a pseudonym for The Pinehurst Outlook in the 1970s. He later was hired as a part-time sports reporter and photographer, then sports editor, with The Moore County News and The Citizen Record. He also worked 11 years as sports editor at the Richmond County Daily Journal in Rockingham.

“Bill is a proud American who loves his home state of North Carolina and living in the Sandhills,” McNair wrote.
