“I’m trying to put a little bit of a rhythm to this discussion so that you have a chance to chew on it because believe me there is a whole lot of gristle in this bite of steak.” ~ Stewart Thurmond

The spoken word

Kingman Brewster, Jr., former President of Yale and Ambassador to St. James, is quoted as saying, “While the spoken word can travel faster, you can’t take it home in your hand. Only the written word can be absorbed wholly at the convenience of the reader.” Well, I can say that technology has made that statement…

It’s almost been a year

It’s almost been a year since I released my first book. I noticed that yesterday when I was looking at all of my Amazon metrics. So, what have we accomplished in a year together? For “The Stars at Knight,” Amazon provides genre metrics for each format. On Kindle, which is the most expansive and most…

“One more Silver Dollar”

It brings me great happiness to announce that the third book of my “Sons of Texas” series is complete. Both the eBook and the paperback are available on Amazon. “One More Silver Dollar” picks up a few days after the events of “Dark Jury” and follows the consequences of the Knight’s actions in the last…

The “Dark Jury” audiobook is live

Publishing an audiobook is an interesting task to undertake. After loading some of your text, you get various producers submitting auditions of their reading of your work. To be honest, I wasn’t prepared for the strange protectiveness I felt in trying to find a voice for my stories. For that reason, finding Toby Tomplay was…

My first public event and a few bits of news

A week ago, I was able to have my first book signing. Rolling into Railport Brewing an hour before they opened, the wife and I were excited about the chance to meet up with friends and new people. Part of that excitement is all of the things I have in the works. For example, the…

The Journey of miles

I’ve always liked the line by Lao Tzu that said, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” It reminds me that often it’s the little things that add up to the sum of their being. It’s reassuring in that it makes the impossible reducible to the things we can do. With…

Snow days

Living in Texas, snow days are relatively rare. The Panhandle sees ice and snow a little more regularly than the DFW area. Austin and Central Texas hardly ever get to experience anything more inspiring than a light flurry. Houston falls in that category, as well. That is why when we get winter weather in the…

Just a shameless plug

My New Year’s resolution for 2020 was to “improve myself” and “take on meaningful projects.” That was part of my motivation that allowed me to write my first book. A year later, if you’ve resolved to get out there and improve yourself or take on meaningful projects, then I salute you. Make 2021 a great…

Happy new year

2020 was somewhat challenging, but it allowed me to start writing, and for that, I am grateful. I wanted to let you know that with the first two books of my “Son’s of Texas” series released in paperback, ebook, and even audiobook, I’ve been relatively happy with my progress. Today, I spent time working on…
