Well almost, but over 70 people turned out to hear me talk about the American West trilogy, which flabbergasted the lady from the library friends who introduced me on Saturday morning and later commented that she’d never seen more than 15 folks show up for an author event before.
After my talk, Peter De La Fuente and I both signed copies of the final book in the trilogy,THE LAST RANCH, before repairing to Longcoat Gallery where we signed copies of the limited edition print “White Sands Hideaway” — which as the Ruidoso News said in a Friday feature article “graces the cover” of THE LAST RANCH. (As indeed it does.)
Did you know that “White Sands Hideaway” twenty years ago also graced the cover of my debut novel, TULAROSA?” How’s that for some cocktail party small talk?
It was a grand day in Ruidoso. Thanks to the friends of the library, Corey Bard, the director, Becky from Books Etc., who handled the sales, and Dave and Judy at the gallery. And a special thanks to my friend, artist Peter De La Fuente.
