Desmond @ Barnes & Noble – August 13

Nine day notice. I’ll be book signing at Barnes & Noble in Fresno on Sunday, August 13 at noon.

Mainly for “Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory,” but I understand that copies of “The Doc” will be there too.

This is either a midway event of the 2017 summer book tour or – as said last week – an early start for the fall tour. I may talk a bit about the books, as they are setting up some chairs in the music/CD area. It is only …. NINE days away from the SIGNING at BARNES & NOBLE – FRESNO, on Blackstone and Nees, by the B of A and Elephant bar..

AGAIN – THAT IS SUNDAY – AUGUST 13 – AT NOON.

Talk & Signing – Library Venue

This is either a midway event of the 2017 summer book tour or an early start for the fall tour. It is only …. one week away from the BOOK TALK AND SIGNING at Woodward Park Branch of Fresno County Library.

While the flyer has only THE DOC book cover, [[ as the sequel to that book is due out this October ]], I will have the Pappy Butler & his Zero Time Theory book there as well. I will be talking about it all. So Mark your calendars for Wednesday July 26 – 7:00 PM.

Flyer from Fresno County library below …….

When a dying friend and fellow Civil War reenactor asks physician Hank Houston to find his daughter’s killer, the last thing he expected to uncover was a U.S. murder squad being run by Homeland Security, and this black ops unit is determined not to be exposed!
As Hank gets closer to the truth, he discovers just how far they will go to hide all their dirty little secrets.

Author & Artist Day

tim-arthors-artists-day-feb-4-2017

This is a shot of the set up last Saturday. It was a huge success as twenty other authors and artists were setup there also. As well as always selling a few books to new readers, what was of interest and what many came to see, was the Confederate Flag painting of California lawsuit fame. It is on the back, wall over my head and left shoulder. It looks small here but is actually 4 feet x 4 feet in dimensions.

The next event – books and showing – will be at the CWRS sponsored Civil War Reenactment at Mooney Grove Park, Visalia – March 4 and 5 weekend.

Authors & Artists

Art - final cover by Jack - Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory

New this year at Madera County Library’s Author’s Day is the inclusion of works of art done by the various authors participating. I have to admit, right up front, that I had nothing to do with this event, now called “Authors and Artists Day.” It will be in two weeks on Saturday February 4 at Madera County Library main Branch, 121 North G Street, Madera, California.

So, this event kicks off the spring book tour for Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory. Plus The Confederate flag painting called The Attack which I painted in 2015 will be on display there too. Besides seeing this painting, which is not small at 48 x 48 inches, it will be interesting to meet other authors and seeing any other art being shown. To view The Attack painting up close, mark your calendars and come on down, Saturday February 4.

Pappy on a Roll

Art - final cover by Jack - Pappy Butler & His Zero Time Theory
Cover by JACK at Black Opal Books

Today’s interview was the second time for the novel PAPPY BUTLER & HIS ZERO TIME THEORY on Central Valley Talk studio in Fresno, California. It ran longer than planned as two other guests in the hour did not show. Besides the talk about the Pappy Butler story for any new viewers, I told a little bit more about Pappy’s theory. The other thing mentioned was the upcoming sequel to THE DOC novel, with answers to loose ends from that book. Called DELETE DOC, it is scheduled for release in May or June. There is no cover design yet. There is more on …….. Enough. The interview is on YOUTUBE at:

Let me know what you think.

Central Coast Writer’s

author-cora-ramos-2016

Cora Ramos posted this yesterday, but to me it is huge, as I could not make it to the Central Coast conference. …. plus her site is beautiful.
I thought that was interesting about the business side, and needing both, but keeping separate … not mixing up.
This is short, so that you may hop over there now at:
