Busy with all sorts of summer activity… just not writing! Perch fishing is fantastic, garden growing like a tropical jungle and reaping the benefits.
Got a call from a retired law enforcement officer in Tombstone, AZ about the murders…. he was with Ashland Co. S.O. in ’74 when they happened. He was thrilled to learn that the Tombstone Public Library actually has a copy of “Rumor…”! Guess I’m not cut out to be in sales, but at least he got his hands on a copy.
Hoping to sell a few copies over Labor Day weekend at the Firelands Fest in New London. Friends of the Library will have it available at their annual used book sale with partial proceeds donated to them.
Well, surprise, surprise…. the Tribe is looking decent for April.
Thanks to those few souls who ventured to Hudson for their first Ohio Author’s Fair… for those who didn’t, you missed an impressive array of authors.
Almost ready to start targeting publishers with the Civil War work… stay tuned!
Thanks to Ellen Simmons and the New London Record, “Rumor” got another plug. The Shoppe here in New London has limited winter hours while the owners hit the auction trail in search of new goodies, so don’t be surprised if you have trouble finding store hours. The New London Historical Society also has copies for sale. You can generally find someone around on Saturday afternoons. Buy online right from here and I’ll sign your copy and get it in the mail within a day or two.
Several people who dropped by the buy a copy of “Rumor” at the Cleveland Christmas Connection mentioned the movie “Secondhand Lion” when I described the Hooker story to them. Well, I watched the movie and got a kick out of it. Within the first 5 minutes, the “narrator” stated, “Rumor has it… they had money hidden away in the barn.” Two older bachelor brothers, well-versed in firearms, reclusive and ornery. That’s where the similarities end, but a fun movie regardless.
