There are 1.2 million words in the English language and that would explain why I can't find the one I want. My novel, August 9th, is a very different type of love story that begins on August 9th, 1969 and spans the next 45 years. It is told with a backdrop of rock n'roll, social consciousness, the tech revolution and raising a son with autism. It fundamentally raises the "what if" question we are all faced with during our lives. The screenplay is now being written and is being described as a mixture of Almost Famous, Forrest Gump and the Notebook.
