Think again.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.

P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novel Little Man, and the Dixon County War a huge success! It’s gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And don’t forget to check out my newest novel (Sold Out). It’s already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here.

  1. What a great story! The blogger in the link is a very vivid writer, but he weakens his work with the unnecessary profanity.
    I’m inspired to stay on the NordicTrack a little longer today.


    1. Agreed on all accounts. I actually unsubscribed from the site for a while because he just over does it just to do it. And the crazy thing is it’s completely unnecessary with how well he writes.

      But wow, what a story about that guy. It definitely has motivated me to take to the next level.


      1. You might suggest that you’re a big fan and a successful writer and that he’d do better with less profanity.
        What an amazing attitude Cliff Young (how perfectly named!) had with his claim that he cured his arthritis by running and his continuing to run long and hard when he had cancer.
        His story really should make people rethink what it means to be a tough guy (or gal).


        1. Yeah, I don’t know the guy, but I can make some guesses about him based on how he writes, and I’m guessing my comments wouldn’t be well received. : )

          You know, you could paraphrase a few parts of that story and put up a clean version with links on your blog. (Especially if this guy’s story is on Wikipedia or some sports website. It is definitely extremely motivating and needs to be shared far and wide, IMO.)
