Ed Ammons' and Jim Casada's odes to their specific country

Country connections live on for two fellows

I am glad for Tipper Pressley and Jim Casada, who have their own webpages, and notify me whenever a new "issue" comes out."  They often provide good material for "The Read," which I am happy to share.

How Book Trailer's Increase Sales

I must admit, when I first started writing I didn’t understand the importance of having a book trailer. At the time I believed the word trailer and book didn’t go together. Unless I was speaking about Hollis Gillespie’s book, Trailer Trashed.
