SPOTLIGHT: West of Santillane Promo

Hello, readers!

I thought I'd pop in this week to share a little about West of Santillane's wonderful historical fiction launch, and encourage everyone to visit Brook's Journal during June, when I hope to post some special blogs about the Lewis & Clark Trail.

I kicked off the West of Santillane launch by appearing on a local daytime TV show called Here At Home on CBS affiliate WDBJ television/Roanoke, Virginia.

Appearing on Here At Home, March 8 2024

It was a live broadcast and a truly great experience, getting to see how a TV show is produced and being an actual guest on it. Several weeks later, I spoke at the Fincastle, Virginia Historical Society to a packed crowd. (See below right)

Fincastle was Julia Hancock's hometown, so there was huge interest in a novel based upon her life. In the following weeks, I did another presentation at the Fincastle Library, and signings at local retailers Book No Further and Second On Main. It all culminated with a reception at my home at the end of April, welcoming neighbors and close friends to come and celebrate a new book. (Below)


A special note of thanks to the Botetourt Library staff, the Lovejoy Life Group, Lindsay Allie, Audra Gibson Doyle, and Doloris Vest for their generous support. It's a LOT of work to produce a novel and give it a attention it deserves. These people backed me 100%!

Lastly, I wish to add that for those of you who have not yet read West of Santillane, if you have a Kindle, you're in luck! The Kindle version is currently on sale at Amazon for ONLY .99 cents! If interested, just click on the book cover below:

Print copies are available on Amazon, and if you're in the Roanoke, Virginia area, at Book No Further and Second On Main (Salem).

READ ON, everybody!
