Pictured above: COVER to my LATEST NOVEL
We had a lot of fun at Nacogdoches' annual Blueberry Festival. The attendees are always good to us and our books. It's a long day because we have to set up before 7 AM on the day of the fest. But temps never reached 90 although they were predicted to.
I'm working on a new novel at this time, striving to avoid imposing a deadline on myself. I'll just say it returns to Mitt Stone and dramatizes an event that happened many years ago in my family. Well, maybe, let's say, the fall!
Got a sweet letter from an eleven year old reader yesterday. She had read The Horse Thief and the Lady, and said it was "awesome," and that she really enjoyed it. Particularly, she liked that "your book was nice and long." I have some young readers and I always tell parents that the language and actions of my characters will not degrade the reader, especially young readers. My young fan didn't give a name, for privacy reasons, and I would never reveal it here anyway. Thanks, young reader. You've made my day!
