The Texas Book Festival is October 25-26. Come see our panel, TELLING THE TEXAS STORY: TRUTH & FICTION IN LONE STAR HISTORY, at 4:15 PM Saturday, but first, at 3 PM, stop by the Music Tent and see Jesse Sublett & The Big 3 Trio! It’ll be a quick set, because right after the last rocking tune, they’ll hoist me up by helicopter over to the Capitol extension for the book panel. The panel features my “Broke, Not Broken” [read more here] co-author Broadus A. Spivey, Carmen Boullosa, and Cynthia Leal Massey. “Broke, Not Broken” is published by Texas Tech Press, so stop by their booth on your way. Also at 11-11:59 AM Saturday, come by the Writers League of Texas booth where Broadus and I will be signing AND selling books, too.

The Big 3 Trio: Kim Simpson, Bill Blackmon, My Terrible Self, and possible special guest(s). More than your money’s worth.

Progress is swift and heavy on my Austin Underworld book [read more here], featuring the Tim Overton Gang, Jerry Ray “Fat Jerry” James, and other terrors of Austin in the 1960s. The official title is yet to be announced, but look for this thing February 2015 [OK, yesterday I wrote “2014” so that was an error] from History Press. More than fifty (50) photos will be included, most of which have never been published before.

Much more news is happening but lately I ain’t got time to blog!

Cheers, till later,
