It is a special place in a special block in a special town where I once worked.
I am pleased to have my “Surrounding™ Series Journey Logs” shelved at Poor Richard’s Bookstore. You can buy both the hardback and soft back version of “Surrounding™ Mammoth Cave ” there today!
I placed my first book, “Markman’s Home,” at Poor Richard’s almost ten years ago. If you are a collector of my work, you would know this as a collector’s first edition. The story changed as I wrote the second book in the trilogy, “Markman’s Cave,” so I don’t sell the first edition any more. Yet, there on the shelf, still exists a copy of that original version. Nifty! It has a life of its own in a world of my creation set in post-apocalyptic Kentucky, no Zombies!
