Please join the Finding Billy Battles Lost and Found Virtual Blog Tour that is currently running through June 17.
Along the way I will discuss such topics as The Rules of Writing (there are none), The Awful English Language, Thoughts about the Art and Craft of Writing, Elmore Leonard’s 10 Rules of Writing, Writing for Nonreaders in the Post-Print Era, Dealing with the Dreaded Rejection Letter, and others.

During the tour, you will also learn about the award-winning Finding Billy Battles Trilogy and a remarkable man who for decades lives an improbable and staggering life of adventure, peril, transgression, and redemption. Then Billy mysteriously disappears. For several decades his family has no idea where he is or what he is doing.
Finally, with his life coming to an end, Billy resurfaces in an old soldiers’ home in Leavenworth, Kansas. It is there when he is 98 that he meets his 12-year-old great-grandson and bequeaths his journals and his other property to him — though he is not to receive them until he is much older.
Years later, the great-grandson finally reads the journals and fashions a three-volume trilogy that tells of his great-grandfather’s audacious life in the old west, as well as his journeys to the Far East of the 1890s—including French Indochina and The Philippines—and finally, in the early 20th century, to Europe and Mexico where his adventures and predicaments continue.
One thing readers can be sure of, wherever Billy Battles goes trouble is not far behind.
