Hometown Author

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to head back to my hometown to visit family and take part in our annual town celebration. It was great seeing lots of friends from the past. A special shout out to my pal Monte who said this fall he's going to sell our book at his tattoo shop by Wartburg College. An advanced "thank you" to Monte for his continued support.

I also had the pleasure of running into Jason Myers, a friend who I went to high school with back in the day. A couple years ago I had reconnected with Jason and learned he had moved out to San Fransisco and had a book deal in the works. Since then, Jason has published two books (Exit Here and The Mission) through Simon and Schuster publishing. When we first started looking at publishing options, Jason gave me some great advice. This weekend was no different. It has been great to see him continue to see such great success with his books. Check his books out for sure....I know these are just the first of many more books he'll put out there. Congrats, Jason, on your success!

One last thing...if you do find yourself near my hometown of La Porte City, IA, be sure to check out my dad's store/museum. Very interesting items AND you can pick up The Voice of College there.
