Ebook release of CONVERSATIONS WITH CODY: A sassy canine speaks his mind.

I have finally finished the conversion of Conversations with Cody to an Ebook ($2.99 special for anyone reading this, your friends and your friends' friends, and the mailman, etc.) Below is an excerpt from the first part of the book.

Starting School

Having failed in all areas of training, we registered Cody for Puppy School starting that September. He was four months old. We had aged considerably in that time. Cody was signed up for a full course load: Sit, Stay, Come, No bark, and No bite. (He was even toying with the idea of trying out for the football team.) 

I heard the girls like jocks.

FREE Guide on How to Write a Book in 20 Steps by a Best Selling Author

Best selling writer Jerry B. Jenkins (no relation to my recurring main charaster, Sam Jenkins, or to my maternal side of the family) has asked me to post a link to his new guide on how to write a book in 20 steps from beginning to end on my personal website. After doing that, I thought the AGT members might be interested in obtaining a copy. Here's the link to Jerry's site.  https://www.jerryjenkins.com/how-to-write-a-book/

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


Six novelettes originally produced as one hour audio books are now available for the 1st time in print.

Murder in a Wish-Book House

V is for Vitamin?

Fate of a Floozy

The Great Smoky Mountain Bank Job

Hurricane Blow Up

The Butlers Did It

Back cover summary:

When your high school classmate shows up on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted List, can your police career get any more interesting? As a favor to a beautiful treasury agent, Prospect, Tennessee’s police chief Sam Jenkins handles a cold case robbery-homicide and clears the forty-three year old mystery of THE GREAT SMOKY MOUNTAIN BANK JOB.

                In MURDER IN A WISH-BOOK HOUSE, Sam investigates the most grisly murder of his career. Then, in V IS FOR…VITAMIN?, he works with an eighty-four year old partner to solve a suspicious death in a nursing home where all the suspects are well beyond their prime.

                Hollywood meets the Smokies in FATE OF A FLOOZY when an academy award winner is murdered during her love affair with a much younger man. HURRICANE BLOW UP and THE BUTLERS DID IT pits Jenkins against some very lethal characters when he tackles eastern European hoods who intend on causing mayhem in Prospect, and bank robbers who flee to the far corners of southern Appalachia to escape capture.


Thank you all,
