That’s Scotts Bluff National monument. I grew up in its shadow, never appreciating it. Scotts Bluff was a major landmark for the pioneers migrating westward along the Oregon Trail. The tracks of their wagons can still be seen there. It was a place people searched out when they were ready for new beginnings.
This website and blog is a new beginning, too, so the ancient bluff overlooking the North Platte valley is a fitting guidepost.
In this new adventure, especially this blog, I’ll talk about writing, reading, and listening.
I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember, and that’s a REALLY long time. I published my first Western novel, The Intruders, through Walker & Co. more than 25 years ago, and a second, The Old Boys, a few years after that. I’ve been writing fiction ever since, but slowly (there were mouths to feed, after all, and a day job that took plenty of energy). Now, I’ve taken those original books and reissued as paperbacks, ebooks, and audiobooks (yep, the whole gamut) under my own imprint (ProMedia Strategies). Click on the “Home” or “Books” tabs to find them on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Audible, iTunes, and other online bookseller sites.
More importantly, I've added a brand new book to the list--one I'm very proud of. Eva Rae’s Song is a unlike anything I've ever done before.
But I want this to be as much about you and about me.
Do you love to write?
Do you have war stories about publishing, self-publishing, and wanting to get published?
Do you live in the American heartland--what the snobs call “flyover country?
Then let’s talk!
