Now selling - autographed copies!

If you want an autographed copy, I've got an easy way for you to get one.

Just click on the "Buy Now" button on the right side of this blog. You can use credit cards, bank cards or PayPal. When I get the order, I will order a book, sign it and send it along. If I get a few orders, I can get some extra books, and the wait will be shorter.

I will also use whatever I make from this to get a bit more money to order extra books that can be sold locally. Just being honest here, folks.

If you have something special you'd like me to write with the autograph, e-mail me at

Future sales in downtown Green Bay

One of my favorite stores - even before now! is Bosse's News and Tobacco in Green Bay. It's an old-fashioned downtown newsstand and tobacco store. They've let me know they are ordering my book - they are very supportive of local authors. So, hopefully soon, my book will be available at a very popular spot in Green Bay!

Signed copies - a question

A question, gentle readers:

Would you be interested in a signed copy of Chronicles? The idea is - you send me the cost of the book ($25), I order it, receive it, sign it and send it to you.

If there's interest, I can do this. Just leave a comment or let me know.

Good news for the iPad crowd...

Chronicles is now listed on the iBookstore - you can pick up an e-book there!

I guess this could be a review

Just found a copy of the 2002 Wisconsin Newspaper Association awards list - it had this comment about my columns: "From humor to tear jerker. All well written."

The e-book is ready...

And you can buy it here for now - it will be available elsewhere soon.

You can buy it, sort of...

A book update - as seems inevitable, I've received the proof copy, and the errors are screaming at me. Mostly, stuff that should have been centered isn't. I fixed the errors and resent the book, so it won't be official until I get another proof copy. That'll take a few days, as I'm broke until next Tuesday. But I believe you can order it at and you'll get the good edition - it may not ship until after I've approved the new proof next Tuesday. (I can approve it riight after ordering)
