June Q&A

I’m back with more questions from blog readers about RVing, my writing activities, what’s happening in our lives since we hung up the keys, and all kinds of other things. While I try to answer all questions individually, I also share some here occasionally.

Q. For a while you were giving us updates on your barn renovation project. Has that stopped?
A. Just about everything outside has stopped for now, with our dreadfully hot summer weather. I hope to get back to the barn project when things start to cool down.

Q. A few months ago you released audiobooks of your Tinder Street series. Will you be doing them for the rest of the Big Lake and John Lee series? I hope so because I am visually impaired and can’t read printed or e-books.
A. I would like to produce audiobooks of those series, it’s just a matter of having time to do so. There are never enough hours in the day for everything I want to get done.

Q. Sitting in a doctor’s office waiting room a while back I read a magazine article about a Nick Russell who is apparently a big name in the snowboarding sport. I know it’s not you but wondered if it is any relation because I seem to remember that one of your kids or grandkids was a snowboarder?
A. Our granddaughter Hailey was into snowboarding at one time, before she got into barrel racing. I’m not sure if she still does it now that’s she’s married.

Q. I read that you got a new shipment of books in. I would love to have an autographed copy of one of your books. How much would it cost?
A. Cost for any of my novels, personally autographed, is $9.95 plus $5 for packing and shipping to any U.S. addresses. I don’t send them out of the country because postage cost is prohibitive.

Q. From time to time I have seen the names of people we both know from the RV community or who are mutual Facebook friends in your books. I think that is so cool. How can I get you to use my name sometimes?
A. Let me know if you want to be a villain or a victim. 😊

It’s Thursday, so it’s time for a new Free Drawing. This week’s prize is an audiobook of The High Ground, the ninth book in my friend Ben Rehder’s Roy Ballard mystery series. In a look back at one of Roy Ballard’s earliest cases, beautiful Kendyl Jordan’s eye-catching classic car goes missing, possibly with something of great value hidden inside it. Can Roy Ballard help her find it? Despite Ballard’s budding reputation, Kendyl learns he’s not even a private investigator, he’s a legal videographer with very little experience. Still, he seems to have a knack for the job, and it doesn’t take him long to identify a couple of dangerous suspects. That’s when the case takes more twists and turns than a winding Texas Hill Country road!

To enter, click on this Free Drawing link or the tab at the top of this page and enter your name (first and last) in the comments section at the bottom of that page (not this one). Only one entry per person per drawing please, and you must enter with your real name. To prevent spam or multiple entries, the names of cartoon or movie characters are not allowed. The winner will be drawn Sunday evening. Note: Due to the high shipping cost of printed books and Amazon restrictions on e-books to foreign countries, only entries with US addresses and e-mail addresses are allowed. After 30 days, unclaimed prizes revert back to the drawing pool for a future contest.

And finally, here’s a chuckle to start your day from the collection of funny signs we see in our travels and that our readers share with us.
