True Grit

I picked up True Grit just to listen to again.  The use of the language throughout the film is amazing.  I don't know if many of you picked up on it while you were watching the film in the theaters, but the vocal performances and storytelling were astounding.  The Coen Brothers really outdid themselves on the script.

Rancho Diablo Spinoff Coming!

Folks, James, Bill, and I have had so much fun creating the world of Rancho Diablo that we've decided to add a spinoff series.  There is just too much history in Texas, and in that hill that became an anchor point of our ranch.

Shooter York was a veteran of the Mexican-American War, but he was so much more.  The first book, simply titled Shooter York is going to introduce the man that became the legend, and how he gave the town of Shooter's Cross its name.  But we've got more adventures in mind for him.  Texas was wild and woolly back in the 1840s (not that it can't be now), and Shooter didn't just stay in Texas.

We hope you join us for his adventures, as well as those of the Blaylock family as they make Rancho Diablo their home and tame their section of the Old West.  Shooter York will debut in the fall.
