I like to think that the Mountains-to-Sea Across North Carolina is an
important book about our state trail.
Tomorrow, Friday April 26, I'll be at Accent on Books at 6 pm to talk
about the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. What is it like to walk
across our state, once you leave the mountains?
This will be my last appearance in Asheville. I've gone to Raleigh and Charlotte…Continue

The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina is being published next month by the History Press.
With a lot of help from my friends, I created a book trailer. Curious?
Make a comment on Youtube and pass it on.
See you at Malaprops on March 22 at 7 pm and other book stores in Western North Carolina.

I'm working on a book trailer for my forthcoming book The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina.
What does anyone know about creating book trailers?
Which ones are effective?

I've noticed that self-published books are always printed on hospital white paper.
Books by traditional publishers are on cream or slightly tinted paper.
This seems to be true even if the self-published book has been thoughtfully edited
and is of high quality.
Any idea as to why?

I just sent out a book proposal to a published for a travel adventure book on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Wish me luck and I'll let you know how it does.
It's been a long time since I visited the North Carolina Room at the Pack Library in Asheville. But now that I'm writing a book proposal for a book on the Mountain-to-Sea Trail, I went back there.
What treasures! My challenge is that I'm not just writing about Western North Carolina. The MST goes from the Smokies to the Outer Banks. Material on the Coastal Plains will be difficult to get. But there are reference librarians eager to…Continue

Why aren’t there more folks out here enjoying these incredible trails just 15 minutes from most Ashevillians’ doorsteps?
That's what Trish Brown, elite Asheville trail runner, asked. Maybe people just don't know where to go. So she designed, planned, and wrote Asheville Trail Running: Taking Bent Creek and the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in Stride. But this book is not just for runners - With 25 loops in Bent Creek and seven on the…Continue

"Real Nascar; White Lightning, Red Clay and Big Bill France" by Dan Pierce is a great history of Nascar. I've never been to a race but I've heard so much about Nascar that I had to read about it.
