Directions: The entrance to Chateau Lorane is approximately 1/4 mile south of Lorane on Siuslaw River Road. As you pass the 2nd store (Lorane General Store and Deli), keep to your right at the "Y." (Don’t make a sharp right onto Old Lorane Road, though.) Follow Siuslaw River Road about 1/4 mile and you will see the entrance to Chateau Lorane on your right. It sits about a mile off of the road. See the map on the Chateau Lorane website at http://www.chateaulorane.com/contact.html

Listen to the story here.
It's both fun and weird to hear someone else read your writing aloud. Dawn of The Deepening did a very nice reading. A couple of mispronounces, but who would know how Dasef is pronounced, and I think you've got to be from the Northwest to know our peculiar pronunciation of Willamette. I told Dawn not to redo for those minor gaffes. After all, do YOU know how to pronounce Dasef and Willamette? The odds are lousy for Dasef and about 50-50 for Willamette, so no harm done.

The Lulu Review of Books blog just posted a review of Tales. It's a nice review, and I'd like to share it with you.
Review: Tales of a Texas Boy
An excerpt of the review, written by Linda Welch, author of Along Came a Demon:
I think Tales Of A Texas Boy by Marva Dasef will appeal to both children and adults. In fact, the large print is particularly suited for children and senior citizens whose eyesight is perhaps not as good as it once was. Marva Dasef skillfully brings her colorful characters to life, “a different life than any of us will ever know”, and I could have happily read another one hundred pages and another twenty Tales Of A Texas Boy. I’ll just have to read it all over again. And again.
Can't get much better than that.
Note: The book is available through Amazon in a several formats. A trade paperback has normal print, and there are two different large print editions.
