Aux Arcs Publications – basically me!

I am Gary Dale Cearley and I this is one of my blogs. I have been a writer for a few years now, whether that be for book publishing, periodicals, or my own blogs. I enjoy writing and am sure that I will continue to as well. I will use this as a forum to discuss topics on writing, publishing and I will also critique some books here as well.

So why Aux Arcs Publications?

Being from Arkansas (God’s country), I have a love for the hills. I lived not far from the Ouachita Mountains which were the precursor for the Boston Mountains and the Ozark Mountains, for which our state is known. I decided to keep these places in my writing identity, thus the name. Oh, why “Aux Arcs”? It is all related. The name Ozarks comes from the French “aux arcs“, or “of the arcs“, which referred to the shape of the mountains. The English speaking settlers bastardized the spelling of the word but keeping the basic pronunciation, into the current name: Ozarks
