I’m working on the first chapter to TSTR3 now. And I’ll say this: If you listen to the Stones’ Gimme Shelter without chills going up and down yer spine, you ain’t entirely human.
I’ve been on the road. I’ve begun working on TSTR3. It will be set entirely in Brock’s hometown of Mycenae, TN, in 1969. No trip to Britain this time!
These people are graduates of Memphis Central, an eclectic group, to be sure: Machine Gun Kelly; Kemmons Wilson (founder Holiday Inns); Peter Taylor (Pulitzer Prize winning author – A Summons to Memphis); Alex Chilton (actually dropped out at 16 when ‘The Letter” became a hit).
The first landing of men on the moon and Woodstock took place within one month of each other in 1969? July and August. With the Manson murders in between! TSTR3 begins around this time.
I’ve begun researching and thinking about my third book in the To Save the Realm Series. 1969, what a horrible, hopeful, amazing year!
Bar-b-q chicken, black-eyed peas (I make the best in the world), vinegar slaw). Modest, but delicious!
I’m currently ‘reaching out’ to reviewers in hopes that they will read TSTR or LE and review my books. If you drop by tosavetherealm.com, please consider reviewing my books. I would sure appreciate it!
I was beach combing the other day at the lake and found this skeleton. It’s a pretty big fish, and I don’t know what kind it is. Anyone know? (I thought it might be a drum fish, but no.)
I just gave away 20 books at librarything.com (10 TSTR, 10 LE). The lucky winners were mostly from the US, from NYC to New Mexico, Washington state to Florida. Only one person was from the UK (Merseyside), which I found disappointing. Anyway, I hope those readers enjoy my books!
This is normally a great place to stay when visiting Clarksdale, MS, to catch some music. It’s also a great place to socially isolate, get some reading/writing/guitar playing done! https://www.shackupinn.com
