My new book, Cowboy Reunions of Las Vegas, New Mexico, has been on the shelves since December of 2012 and is getting a lot of attention. There've been book-signings, a presentation, and reviews. And now the ranching, artists and poets, and history care-takers have rallied and are planning a Cowboys' Reunion Centennial Celebration for August 2015.

So, everybody, get out your angora chaps, big hats, jeans, cameras, paints, and pens. . .and. . . "Git Fer Vegas!"

Breathing Space

The final Footlights activity of 2011 is completed. So now I have breathing space, writing time, and inspired panic. I'm not out of ideas, don't have "writer's block." I have so many ideas and projects that I don't know where to begin. So, consequently, I do not begin. Is this procratination?
