On the Road

It’s been a couple days since my last post. It’s been pretty damn busy.

THE RANGER tour kicked off to a great start in my home town of Oxford, Mississippi on Thursday.

My thanks to everyone who came for the Square Books reading and carried the event on over to the City Grocery bar.

Yesterday, I hit the road on up to Blytheville, Arkansas at the famous That Bookstore in Blytheville. The owner Mary Gay Shipley is one of my favorite people in the book biz and that sentiment is echoed by Bill Clinton and John Grisham who make her store a regular stop.

I just landed in Houston this afternoon for a 4:30 signing at Murder By the Book. This is my first signing there after the death of my great friend, David Thompson. Very strange to be here without him. Above is a very typical of photo of me and David drinking after the book reading and talking old movies and books.

Tomorrow I drive over to Austin to read at Bookpeople and hang out with my pals, Jesse Sublett and Scott Montgomery. Thinking maybe some natural barbecue from Ruby’s and a few Shiners.

Monday night I’ll be at A Real Bookstore (yep, that’s the name) outside Dallas in Fairview for a cocktail party/reading at 6 p.m.. If you’re in the area, please stop by. Apparently they’ve created a cocktail just for The Ranger made with plenty of Jack Daniels. Man, I love Texas!
