From Kansas to Pike's Peak!

A fourteen-hour drive yesterday brought me to Colorado. I'm staying with friends in sight of Pike's Peak. I love the smell of mountain air!

These first two picture were taken on the highway in Kansas
Then I drove into Colorado and glimpsed the mountains in the distance. It is unbelievable how flat everything was up until I reached the mountains. Check out the picture below that I took of Pike's Peak from the deck:
If you live in the Colorado Springs area, meet me at 4 o'clock for a book signing at Barnes & Noble (Citadel location).

Thank you for coming to B&N in Albany. I haven't started you book yet because I'm in the middle of LOTR, but I will read it as soon as I can. It looks so good!

I have seen the Tagging games in the blogosphere but I don't have time to participate. I'm sure you can understand especially while I am on this extensive book tour. Enjoy Swords Of The Six!

Cool pics, Scott! It'll be fun to hear about your mountain state adventures.

WELCOME TO THE WRITING SITE OF SCOTT APPLETON

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
