Good Things Are to Come

This past month has been a whirlwind of activity since the May 7 release of my memoir, A

SOMETIMES PARADISE, under the label of Sandra Jonas Publishing. I have been as busy doing public programs and updating social media as I ever was when I was Wyoming State

Archaeologist. The release of the book is not the end, but just the beginning of the publishing


Amazon has announced that the book is a Best Seller in its Kindle edition, #1 in the

History of Western U.S., #1 in Rural Sociology, and #1 in Sociology of Rural Areas. And I’m so pleased with the early reader reviews:

“A wonderful slice of time in the ranching history of southern Wyoming. . . . Great read.”

“Mr. Miller captured the essence and beauty, as well as the harshness of Wyoming and the West superbly.”

“While reading this, I had moments of sadness, laughter and a longing for how things were and should be!”

I am grateful to my publisher, Sandra, and her colleague, Jill Tappert, for getting the word out about my memoir. It’s even available in Australian bookstores! And Sandra is working diligently on an audio version of the story.

With Sandra Jonas, my publisher, outside the Buff restaurant in Boulder, Colorado, celebrating the book release.

In the meantime, I have been interviewed by Grady Kirkpatrick on KUWR Open Spaces, which has aired a couple times in the past week or so. Last Saturday, my brother, Rod, and I read from our books and talked about growing up on the I Lazy D to a full house at the Carbon County Higher Education Center in Rawlins.

The event was sponsored by Carbon County Museum and the Carbon County chapter of the

Wyoming Historical Society. We had a blast discussing Wyoming with the crowd, reacquainting with our cousins, Susan, Sandy, and Bill, who grew on the ranch with us and even meeting some old friends who used to ride for the brand.

Currently, I’m lining up a book reading in Cheyenne, one in Encampment, and a radio interview on KOWB in Laramie with Glenn Woods on his Wake Up Wyoming program, which also airs in Casper and Cheyenne.

I want to thank everyone who has read, rated, and reviewed A SOMETIMES PARADISE. I

appreciate your support.
