Mark Your Calendars, Folks!

My memoir, A Sometimes Paradise: Reflections on Life in a Wyoming Ranch Family, has gone to the printer! It has a planned release date of May 7, so expect some announcements about preorders and reviews in the coming days. The story has been a labor of love that focuses on the land, my family, and the enduring legacy of the American West.

The book takes the reader on a poignant journey through the rugged beauty and

hardscrabble challenges of Wyoming ranch life. My adventures there taught me valuable lessons that shaped my personal growth, instilled in me a sense of wonder toward nature’s allure, and exposed the enduring power of family and friendships. Ride along on the journey and open your senses to the addictive stimulus of ranching culture that captured my heart and soul when I was a boy.

I have been working with Sandra Jonas Publishing on the final memoir preparations. She is an ideal editor and one of the hardest workers I know. Sandra and her assistant, Jill Tappert, has helped build my author page on Facebook to keep readers up-to-date on developments. Please be sure to "like" my facebook page.

We also have established a Launch Team to promote the book. Feel free to join it and receive an advance electronic copy of my book and write your honest review on Amazon. The process is simple, but very important. My book publisher tells me that early reviews are critical to a successful launch. You can join here: Thank you in advance.

Additionally, we are planning several promotional activities over the first month

following release. I already have a radio interview scheduled with Grady Kirkpatrick on KUWR for May 16, which probably will air a day or two later. See my events here!

Once the book is available, I will send a copy to Bill Sniffin of Cowboy State Daily to review in

his periodical. Glenn Woods from Casper has offered to interview me for his radio show, Wake Up Wyoming. Then I will do a book signing and reading at Carbon County Museum in Rawlins where Tom Mensik is Director.

Many more opportunities will develop in the coming weeks, but please order your book

as soon as they are available. That way you can familiarize yourself with the story and ask

questions if you attend one of my events. Thanks for your continued support. Happy reading!
