Yes, I am working on a new Garison Fitch novel. When will it be out? I have no idea. The original Garison Fitch novel (“First Time”) was written in the summer of 1989. Then it got re-written a few times before being self-published in 2001 (see other blogs on this web site for more details)…. Read more »

Got an email from a guy in Saudi Arabia who has been reading my books on Kindle and wanted to know when the next one would be out. It was extremely gratifying because as I write (and re-write) about these characters, sometimes taking years to complete a book, they become very real to me. So… Read more »
Early word I’ve gotten is that Kindle books are available on iPad! So, if you’ve got one, go to Amazon and order Garison Fitch!
Thanks to everyone who made March 2010 my best-selling month ever! I sold 56 books on Amazon’s Kindle platform, easily out-pacing my previous best month by 24 books. As usual, the leader was “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch – Book 1″ with 14 copies, but “Saving Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch –… Read more »
If you would like a personalized, autographed, paperback copy of “First Time” or “Saving Time” or “Lost Time” email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details. Order all three at once and I can make you a good deal!
Besides writing the Garison Fitch books (which are experiencing their best sales month ever this March–thanks readers!!), I also draw the comic strip “Tuttle’s” and the on-line comic book “Burt & the I.L.S.”. In addition, I write a column for the High Plains Observer, an on-line newspaper that covers the Texas panhandle, as well as… Read more »
All of the novels I have written have come to me suddenly, some of them in dreams. A dream about picking someone up at the bus station became “Psalm 88″. A casual comment by my father three decades ago became “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch.” Yesterday, while building a fire in the outdoor… Read more »
I have to tell you: I don’t believe in time travel. I’ve read the articles about how a super-sonic jet traveling from New York to L.A. actually travels backwards in time something like 2 seconds. And I read the book “Elegant Universe” (by Brian Greene) and almost understood the part where the front end of… Read more »
It’s official: I have now sold more copies of my books in the month of February 2010 than in any other single month! 31 Kindle copies and 2 paperbacks, in case you’re wondering. This is appropriate as I always look forward to February as it’s when pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training. As a… Read more »
I got a check in the mail last Tuesday because between August 1, 2009 and January 31, 2010 I sold 12 paperback copies of my novels. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but considering I still don’t know who is buying them, and the total of my marketing “effort” has been word-of-mouth and this… Read more »
