My OTHER Books - Tales of a Texas Boy

I'll take the this lull in the regularly scheduled program to tell you about some of my books that have been out in the world for some time. I tend to neglect the poor things.

Tales of a Texas Boy - Large Print makes a really great Christmas present for those who are still spry, yet their danged glasses don't work as well as they should. My mom's like that. With her progressive lenses, the world in general is more or less clear, but the tiny spot left to the reading part of the lens is difficult for her to find.

The 18Pt type is eyesight-impaired friendly. I can even read it without my glasses.

The trim size (dimensions) is an easier-to-hold 9.7 x 7.4 x 0.3 inches with 138 pages. It's priced at only $8.99, which is a freaking bargain for a print book these days.

I've lowered the price on the print copy to $8.99 and it's eligible for free shipping and handling from Amazon.

Tales is also available as a regular print trade paperback for $6.49 and the 99 cent ebook of course.

How do you handle a crazy jackass? Eddie knows. If you ask Eddie, he'll tell you pigs can fly and show you where to find real mammoth bones. Take his word for it when he tells you always to bet on the bear. These are things he learned while dreaming of becoming a cowboy in West Texas during the Depression. Through Eddie, the hero of "Tales of a Texas Boy," we find that growing up is less about maturity and more about roping your dreams. Hold on tight. It's a bumpy ride. A wonderful read for anyone who enjoys books like "Little House on the Prairie" or "Tom Sawyer." A great bit of nostalgia for seniors, too. Bonus story included.
