I'm Getting Published

Cover by Jeremy at ebooks designs

My book, "Dead and Buried in the Southwest Desert" is going to be published.  I just sent the contract back to the publishing company and have some tweaking to do on the book to get it ready.  I don't know exactly when it will be published, but I will announce it as soon as I have a date.  To say I am very excited is an understatement.  I am ecstatic and the news is still sinking in.

The book is a labor of love combining my interest in history (especially stories of the Wild West) and my road trips with Sharon seeing what these places look like now.  It is seven chapters of stories and information along with many of my photos.  I start with Indians of the past (Sinagua, Salado, and Hohokam) and their ruins; next is the mining towns before and now; a chapter on some Wild West outlaws; abandoned places, cemeteries, and the bizarre things found buried in the desolate desert.  I am very excited and can't wait to hold a copy of my book in my hand.
