Widely praised in reviews and read by book clubs around the country, this book will make a great gift and a prized Christmas read for years to come. Come visit Stephanie at The Lilly Pad at 209 N.

Readers / Reviewers wanted.

Hello AGT members and website visitors,

My new anthology is in the final stages of publication. I just received the semi-final PDF version that will be used to produce the hardcopies and all eBook versions. Now, the publisher asked me to look for "Advanced Copy" readers who are willing to read the book and within 30 days after it goes up for sale, post a reveiw at Amazon and/or Goodreads. 

If anyone is interested, please send me an email address where you'd like this PDF file sent. Please note: This copy contains several typos or errors that have been found and will be corrected before the true final vversoins are released to the public.

Okay, here's the information on the new book:

THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN BANK JOB and other Sam Jenkins Mysteries

Tobacco Wars Podcast Available on ITunes

Congratulations to Trent Harris and WCYN Cynthiana, KY for an excellent podcast on the Tobacco Wars in Kentucky history. Trent interviewed me about my book, Nick and Viola: A Kentucky Family Tragedy in the Tobacco Wars (1904-1911). He also interviewed Wayne Kearns, a local tobacco farmer whose family also experienced the tobacco wars. Trent is a skillful producer. Perhaps he was inspired to take on this topic because Nick Muntz is his great-great grandfather!
