Tour nearing its end

Since starting this book tour, I have driven over 5,000-miles. Over 300 books have sold, and I've spoken to hundreds of middle school students. New fans have been reached, and I have seen some wonderful new places.

When returning through Kansas I was supposed to have a signing at a Barnes & Noble in Wichita, but that was canceled last minute. Evidently the city was struck by tornadoes that very day I was supposed to be signing there. But I did have a signing at Barnes & Noble in Columbia, Missouri. I sold about 25 books in 3-1/2 hours.

I am back in Kentucky now. In the last few days I've visited two middle schools. I have one more school tomorrow, then I'm off to West Virginia. On Saturday I have one more event (Barnes & Noble) before driving home.

Being away from my wife and kids this long has proved very difficult. I have decided not to do this again. My plan is to buy a quality used RV this Fall, so that my wife and I can travel non-stop around the country. We can visit places we've wanted to see, and I can hold book signing events that will continually grow my readership. My plan is to haul my car behind the RV. That way we can park at camp grounds and have the use of the smaller transportation.

"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.
