POINTING TO THE MOON is a memorial, a biographical novel in epistolary form Artists, the late Virginia Love Long and Rochelle Lynn Holt, shared a friendship for more than three decades in letters, a lost art now that email exists. They exchanged thoughts to preserve existence on literature and everyday experiences. The writers also revealed their emotions in poems and collaborative published projects. They met each other only three times.
Rochelle lost her partner of twenty-eight years less than two months after the passing of her best friend, Virginia. The losses were devastating. With the permission of both her late friend and Virginia's sister in N.C. she edited the literary letters of Virginia, filled with her poems and ever-present wit. Since Virginia referred to Rochelle as "my twin," the author devised a novel epistolary project entitled "Pointing to the Moon." The writers were both devotees of the moon and her advising progression. Rochelle's books have been published annually since 1970. You can find recent ones on her website rochellelynnholt.com. A resident of Ft Myers for almost three decades, she has divided her time between Florida and Lockport, Il for the past fifteen years.
