Dear Friends:

Walkin' Lawton is now available for online pre-order through Amazon.com. A Kindle version is forthcoming.

Pre-ordered copies will ship after November 20, the official release date. A book tour will follow through Florida, Washington, DC, and Connecticut (Yale).

Walkin' Lawton has been a labor of love and a source of intellectual and spiritual inspiration for 5 years--3 years of writing and research followed by 2 years to secure a publisher and complete editing and publication.

Chiles walked a thousand miles under the Florida summer sun and forged a lifelong bond with the land and the people of his state. His "Walk" campaign became a symbol of his career commitment to the public interest. Chiles deserves a strong legacy. I hope you will read this book and learn more about this marvelous man and magical politician. If you enjoy the story, I hope you'll share it.

After a long and fulfilling creative adventure on the "Lawton Chiles Trail," my literary career has truly begun. I'm grateful to my friends for the support and good faith they have shown throughout this journey.

Independent Bookstores

I've been reaching out to many independent bookstores in the state of Florida to expand the audience for Walkin' Lawton. There are some colorful spots out there.

Sandman Book Company in Punta Gorda has added to me to their list of Florida authors. I'm proud to join the list of authors who have written Florida-themed books.

Release Date: Nov. 20

The official release date for Walkin' Lawton is here. Tuesday, November 20th!

It will soon be available via Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble online. You may order the book now via Florida Historical Society. Just click on the book cover.

I've commissioned a poster and a custom bookmark as well--they will be ready soon.

I'm excited for what is to come. I will try to write some true commentary posts in the next couple weeks. There is much to reflect upon at the conclusion of this 5-year journey.

I have learned so much about the writing process.
