Spreading the News

I had a wonderful time talking to the Laramie County Historical Society Sunday, always great to get together with other lovers of history.

Book Seven Almost For Sale

This morning I got the proof copies of the newest of my kid’s novels, my seventh book overall. This one is book three in the series and is titled, Yikes – My Neighbor’s A Vampire.


The book looked good, and formatting was spot on. My wife, as always is my first reader when the proof copies come. Others will also read, one maybe two people, but my wife reads the stories first. She is a terrific first reader as we have been married long enough that she will tell me the truth about what doesn’t work, and what she does not like.

The problem – she found something she didn’t like. Each chapter has a picture on the first page, Jan didn’t like where I put some of them. In my first two books the pictures told a bit of the story to follow, but in this one, I put a few after the story on the heading for the next chapter. I thought it was clever and creative, she didn’t think so, now looking at it, she’s right. Darn it!

Looks like I will be spending some time moving pictures around, along with the usual fixing of things my readers find. Oh well, that’s what readers are for.


Work – work – work, a writer’s job is seldom never done.

Western Short Stories - Looks Like Readers Are Loving Them

I cannot say how terrific it feels to see my book of Christmas short stories is still selling. Although the stories are set around Christmas, they are stories for any time of the year. The short tales are more of love, hope, relationships and most of all, the west.

The book did well before Christmas and is still going strong, selling a few copies, now, nearly every day. I often get notes on blog posts or by email about my books, and occasionally by mail. Recently I received a most heartwarming note about this book. It was so appreciated, as all of us that write hope that we are making a difference in our readers day, if nothing else, but to bring a bit more pleasure and happiness into someone’s life.

Commitment - A Western Mystery

Did you make a resolution to read more in 2017 – I hope so, no better way to escape.

For a good old west, uplifting mystery, give this one a try.  Super way to start the year.

Commitment - Blade Holmes had it all. He was a living legend and still a young man. But he couldn't commit, not to a job a place to call home or to the love of his life. And now someone wanted him dead. Blade Holmes is at his best from Laramie City to Fort Laramie. History, adventure, mystery, this book has it all!

The Book Sales - Oh The Sales

Thought I Would Walk Up On Top Of A Mountain To Update Things
Like every writer I know, we are ecstatic when sales take off and upset when they grow stagnant. However, that is the nature of selling books, a few good days, and some, well, I will only say, on days when I sell no books at all I wish I would not have checked the stats.


My latest two books, Interview with a Gunfighter 


Have stayed in the top 200 of their categories for several weeks. With three new books coming soon I have high hopes for the future. I have been told that when I reach ten books, I will see a steady uptick in sales – hope so.
