Hey Readers!

There are new updates to the publisher web-site. (click link)
Land Run Website

I had to come up with a photo to send in. Let me tell you - that was not easy! It seems that I am the family photographer. And evidently I am never alone!

As most everyone, I have been thinking about the tornadoes that have swept across the country these past weeks. These events are common to the setting of Land Run. But not as frequent with such force and numbers of twisters. I grew up in the very center of tornado activity in the nation but never personally knew anyone who had died from a storm. In Oklahoma we had the latest in weather monitoring technology and alerting systems (first in the nation to have doppler radar). And of course, you can see anything coming from anywhere there. April to June everyone is cognizant of the Spring storms. In Oklahoma, tornadoes are like sin - never a matter of IF but instead - WHEN. But about these that came across the South - a friend informed me of some of his family who did perish in the storms last week. The destruction was incredible. Just want to encourage folks to pray for these communities.

Anyway, here is a current list of places to purchase the book - even now before the 'official' release date. (click links)

Book Available - Everywhere?

Just a quick update:

I found recently that Land Run is now available a lot of places - well, there is no telling where you might find this book now. But here are a few places it popped up lately.

I will be adding some scheduled events upcoming this April and in May. And maybe more interesting updates. ;-)

New Website!

It’s getting closer to the release date! May 10. The publisher has the website in place. Please come by and check it out.

In other news - I have joined a group of guys working on a new website for writing, art, and music. It is very new but bookmark it because I think it is going to get really interesting. :-)

Also, if folks out there have been reading the novel already - please shoot me some feedback in the comments sections here.

One interesting thing I have found lately is a desire to tell people about the ending of the novel. But of course I can not do that. It was such fun to write this story I could just give the whole story away if I am not careful. So when people ask me what it is about...I pause. The YouTube video trailer gives a good general idea about it...but then it is so much more. So I pause...and say, "It’s about a lot of things in the particular. Overall, it’s about God truly active in community." And to the question, "how can you write about that?" I don't know exactly...but I did it. ;-)
