Book Signing Follow-up Part
Spent Friday and Saturday in the Boise, Idaho area, conducting two book signings of my historical, THE SIGN OF THE EAGLE. The first one was at Hastings Books, Music & Videos in Meridian,
a suburb of Boise. Met a lot of fine people, gave out lots of flyers and signed copies of my book. The traffic was not as
heavy as I had been use to from my past signings (I guess I have been getting spoiled), but still it was a good experience.
There are a lot of good people here.
I want to thank Book
Manager, Trina, and all the Hastings associates for their support.

My second signing of my historical, THE
SIGN OF THE EAGLE, took place at Hastings Books, Music & Videos at the Fairview Avenue store in Boise, Idaho. This
is the biggest and busiest of three Hastings stores in Idaho's state capitol. This turned out to be an excellent signing (more
to what I am use to). Again met lots of fine people, answered lots of questions re: my niece, Katrina Hughes Brennan's portrait
of my main character, Macha, which was used for the book cover, and signed many copies of my book. Also met a well-known movie
actor who was visiting a relative in town. He asked me not to mention his name as he wanted to keep a low-profile. He asked
me about the writing business as he considered me a fellow artist. Nice compliment.
Book Manager, Myranda, said
I did an "awesome job" and would like me to return in the Fall for an encore. I want to thank her and the rest of
the Hastings associates for their support in making this signing a positive experience.

The Broken Lance (novel in progress)
Finished the rewrite of a new chapter (47) in my latest historical, THE BROKEN LANCE.
Will give it to my mentor Patricia DeMars Pfeiffer, author of eight historicals, for review. My main character, Marcellus,
formally a Spanish Cavalry officer, now a tribune, has been recalled to Rome after spending six years in exile. Nero reigns
and his tyranny grows worse with each passing day.
