My last book

I got an email from the copyright people a bit ago, seems I had forgotten to include the pictures for one of the short stories I had in it. They wanted to know where and what they were or I would have to start all over with the copyright process. I didn't want to do that - it costs more for a compilation of short stories than for a single story, even if there aren't as many pages. It had been nearly a year - and I had to look them up again. I admit that I am not the most organized person in the world.

I finally have it all done and can relax - nobody can steal my pictures, although I can't for the life of me understand why they would want to. I haven't sold a single copy of The Storyteller's Dusty Trunk II. Nor for that matter the first one, no, I may have sold one of the first one, I don't remember. I gave a bunch of various books away. Sigh.

Thought I would post the pictures from the short story Back to the Land. I'm sure some of you remember my posting a version of the story - way back when.


Summer '83

Me & Nipper Easter '83

Buddy and Rooster Summer 84

J and Gerty summer 84?

My last Christmas there '85, I'd lost Nipper and 20# or more.

Oh, to be that young again!

    1. Didn't I send you "The Storyteller's Dusty Trunk II?" I don't remember, It's the blue one with the bird on it. Maybe I sent you the first one (with the moon). Gee, I don't remember anymore. II had the mail order bride story - does that sound familiar? Argh ... I'm sorry.

  2. The one I have is blue but there is no bird on it. It is the sky and clouds. The Storyteller's Dusty Trunk. First story is Melody and Love.

  3. I like the picture of the little house the most. I can see the neat little curtains in the windows. Just shows you can make a home any where.

    1. LOL, those curtains were the most expensive thing in that cabin, next to the leaded glass window in the kitchen. They were 'homey' that's for sure.

  4. Looks like a cozy place to spend the summer. Not sure about winter. I've lived off the grid in winter it lot of hard work.

  5. Why did I not remember you are an author? I think it's sad you haven't sold many books. That cabin looks like a lovely cosy place to live in.

    1. I'm not famous, lol! And I am little more than a novice, though better than some, I think.

      The cabin was warm in summer and cool in winter.

  6. Love old pics. They all seam to be the same. Just the faces are different.
    It's a way we can all connect I think

    1. Most of these were color, but I had to change them for the book. (Color photos made the book cost more) These seem so long ago, another lifetime ago.
