It’s a book!!!


Hopefully, the Kindle will be up tomorrow, but the paperback will have to wait until we get the proof copies back.

As always, Tina did a super job on the cover!!!

  1. Excellent!. Looking forward to reading it, but the title portends the end of one of my favorite series.

  2. Thanks for the hard work you did. And an appropriate ending! Well done, Jim.

  3. Looking forward to reading the book.
    Not looking forward to having to wait an entire day!

  4. Thanks! Got the change rolled up already. Very good series, and recommend it by word of mouth.

  5. Add another eagerly waiting for the next installment, even though I too am presuming it to be the last.

  6. Awesome news. I’m a Luddite and don’t do Kindle, I prefer the feel of a real page turning. Glad your hard work is paying off, but am sad to realize this ‘Riding Into The Sunset’ is for real. Every good thing comes to an end eventually.

  7. Just down loaded your new book and I am looking forward to reading it, thank you because I needed something good to read.

    Just a note you might want to consider, in the first few pages there is a gun battle and at the end on location 139 – (Moments later, there was only the smell of cordite …) I know what cordite smells like because in in early 1960’s I would borrow a British Enfield from the hardware store where I worked and pick up some old, real old military surplus .303 ammo that was pre WWII, every third or fourth round was dud, probably dangerous as hell to shoot and it smelled funky, not at all like modern smokeless powders.

    Cordite hasn’t been around since WWII. Older ammunition that was manufactured during the 40’s would contain cordite. Ballistite” and “Cordite” but gradually shifted to “propellant.” … Nitrocellulose, an energetic component of most smokeless propellants used in modern ammunition with other ingredients. β€œThe smell of Cordite is referenced erroneously in fiction to indicate the recent firing of weapons.”

    Not trying to be a jerk but I have noticed writers referencing the smell of cordite when it most likely is not happening.

  8. 2149 Philly time, and it’s on the way to my Kindle.

  9. Over a third of the way through the book and I am enjoying rereading the pieces that have been on your site from time to now that they are in book form. Having lived in Texas and Oklahoma most of my life your Petroleum Club chapter is great, I have had a not of good meals and functions in OKC, Houston and Dallas being treated as a guest by family and friends. You do an excellent job setting up the Texas background for each chapter.

    Thank you for another great book.
