Featured on Just Olga! Most honored to be included in her author collection!
It’s Friday and day for new books. And today it’s time to get scared, really scared.
I met Patrick Jones and family (they are great supporters of his writing) on Twitter and I’ve been following his career ever since. He blogs about writing, shares fascinating videos of his garden, and is generous sharing other writers’ work.
Pat Jones was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. His special interests include the science of paleoanthropology and archaeology. Woodworking is one of his favorite hobbies, with special emphasis on the unique grains and textures of various species of trees. He and his wife, Sandy, thrive on designing and creating a flower garden of perennials, second to none! Constantly evolving, the garden began as a way that he could surprise his wife on her birthday. The rest is history! The garden now spans one forth of an acre!

Featured on Kevin Cooper’s Blog! Thanks Kevin!
The Wolf’s Moon by Patrick Jones has been on the market for the past three years and is still holding it’s own.
I sent copies to my brothers only to find out unless there are pictures with the words, well…you can imagine the rest.
Then, I met a fourth grade teacher who told me she no longer had time to read novels anymore. Rachel said she did miss that part of her life, but her kids came first-as well they should.
My plight was how to reach people who just did not read for whatever the reason.
After spending some hours talking with my wife, she suggested that we again look into an audio book.
Since I am a self-published author, the cost of putting the book on CD was out of the question.
My wife, Sandy, suggested that we look into the possibility of an audiobook online. After all, one can read a book using a computer or a notebook, so why not to listen to one?
Mark Westfield was the man picked for the job – and a great pick he turned out to be!
He worked long and hard hours turning out what is now the finished product. Mark’s work is excellent!
It is one that I hope you truly enjoy.
Saying all of that, I know from your emails that you are all patiently waiting for the next installment of The Linden Chronicles.
Good news for my valued readers. Last night, the editing the newly copyrighted short novel, The River, was finished. Cover reveal to follow soon…stay tuned.
We hope that within the next three weeks it will be out for your reading enjoyment!
So you know, I started what was to be another short story but it took on a life of it’s own.
It now sits at over 70,000 words (without revisions).
The sequel to The Wolf’s Moon is well underway.
Well my friends, this is the update.
Continue to follow my website, The Linden Chronicles, for the latest news and many other items of interest.
One more thing: Thanks to all for the kind words, thoughts and all of your prayers.
It has been a rough three years, but you guys made it better!
To all of you, many thanks and love,

This last couple of weeks with all of the rain The Fairy Garden has exploded with colors! Kevin Cooper (Great Indie Authors) requested pictures of the Prickly Pear that we have that are indigenous to the Southwestern Missouri area. We don’t have to buy plants anymore since the perennials self-propagate so we just cut a bit off and replant!
Please enjoy our Fairy Garden and we will be sure to take pictures of the next phase of the Fairy Garden as it grows. God Bless 🙂
Enjoy our view of Spring in Missouri!
I wrote a blog not long ago about how my daughter at two years of age received her first library card.
A couple of decades later she has a room full of books. Many of them I gave to her when I moved from St. Louis to Crawford County, Missouri.
She still is in the modern age and uses her computer for reading, but she’d rather have a book.
Although my son has almost every type of electronic device known for communication, he still has books for his three sons to read. The cherry wood bookcase has books so packed in that if he buys anymore, I’ll have to make another bookcase.
As for myself, I have no problem with the electronic devices. People who do use them buy my book (I hope). I just have a problem reading from them.
A book has a certain feel. A new book has a smell that differs from a used book to one that is very old.
Where I like turning pages, others like moving a finger. I can take a book to my cabin to read in the evening and not worry about batteries.
Last evening at the local grocery story, I saw a friend, Carol. Her mother is up in years and has been ill lately. Carol was with her mother while the doctors conducted testing.
While Carol waited with her mother between tests, she took out her Kindle and started reading. Carol was asked, by her mother, what she was doing.
She explained it was something she could use to read a book. Carol took the Kindle to her mother, demonstrating how it worked.
Smiling a most becoming smile, she asked Carol, “What will they think of next?”
