LITTLE STONE MOUNTAIN, is published and on hand for shipping. It is a modern day mystery that takes off on the old Stone family. Hail Stone is the last surviving member of the clan. He stands to come into a fortune if he lives. But border troubles & health problems almost guarantee that he won't.
A number of lady readers have said it's my best book so far. Old Friend Rod Lorenzen is in town and he swears that hero Hail Stone was modeled after him. He too thinks it's my top novel. Thanks, Rod.
The Mitt Stone series of books is available in e book form on Amazon/Kindle, Barnes&Noble/Nook, and Apple/ibooks. This includes the new LITTLE STONE MOUNTAIN. Just go to Kindle, or other, and put in my name. All are priced at $3.99.
Sarah Gordy, with the Burnet Library, has invited me to speak to their library group based on our visit to Burnet for the Bluebonnet Festival. We're working on a date. I love library groups. Often it takes a few months to find a mutually agreeable time.
We just returned from our first visit to the Boerne Market Days, which ran Sat. and Sun. Good turnout, good sales. Lots of great German ancestry folks in those hills. They always love TEXAS VICTORY. Thanks, Boerne!
Enjoyed the Blackland Prairie Days at Taylor last weekend. Lots of friendly readers of Western novels. Came home and listened to the Belton School Board election results. Daughter Janet Holmes Leigh was a winner for one of the two open "At Large" positions. Her former Belton High classmate Ty Taggart was the other.
In Boerne, I came down with a humdinger of a summer cold. I'm updating this website while I have a good moment. Wanted you to know we are cancelling our plans for the Copperas Cove Rabbitfest on May 18-21. Too many days, too many hours for someone feeling like I am right now. See you in Bandera on Memorial Day Weekend.
