Facebook friend buys METAL MAN WALKING

A Facebook friend I’ve chatted with for at least several years bought METAL MAN WALKING today. I’m very excited to hear this.

Every sale of a novel is special.

Thanks friend! Wonderful to have you as a reader.

P.S. My third sale of 2015!

Oh Carley I loved your book…

Those 6 words are some of the best a writer ( named Carley ) can hear – “Oh Carley, I loved your book and oh, so did my friend.”

“Which one did you read?”

“METAL MAN WALKING. I just loved it — the man walking North Chuck ( that’s North Charleston ) and his love of baseball when he was a kid. I just loved it. I want to read all your books.” He pauses, adds, “You write like a guy — you know, for guys.”

I smile. He’s right about that!


Earlier, a different guy says a similar thing, “I’m loving your book.”

“Which one did you buy? I forget.”


“Oh yes; well when you finish it, you need to read METAL MAN WALKING. They go together.”

“Oh, okay,” he says. “That sounds great.”


My cozy spot in the shade outside SINGLE SMILE CAFE. I sold four of my novels this morning. I also met many patrons of the coffee shop and enjoyed conversing with them. Except for the humidity and the heat, a wonderful morning.IMG_1223

Annie Dreaming by Carley Evans

Once again, sharing M.T. Sweat’s wonderful words about me as a writer and about ANNIE DREAMING. Thanks M.T.

Resting in His Grace

By mid-year of 2011, I had become an avid fan of the convincingly positive and inspirational works of Carley Eason Evans. It is a rare trait that is found in her words; ceaseless care, compassion, and concern. The evidence of a life influenced by Christ flows through the ink of her pen… or keyboard.

I recall suggesting she consider carrying her work to another level, perhaps the publishing of a book. Straightforwardly, she assured me my coaxing wasn’t necessary. It was already in the works.

I personally felt Carley could provide us with a unique devotional to complement works like Chambers’ and Carson‘s. She traveled a very different road. Thankfully she went with her heart and not mine. While I still believe she can one day offer such a work, her gift to her readers today is fictional reality. It is very sufficient.

Her available titles are “Metal Man Walking” and “Annie Dreaming.”…

“Local author book-signing” welcome on the sidewalk outside the front door of A VERY LITTLE BOOKSTORE today. 


And the entrance cubby where I sat or stood to sell my novels, METAL MAN WALKING and ANNIE DREAMING. 

I sold and signed five novels: four of METAL MAN WALKING and one of ANNIE DREAMING. 

I’m exhausted, but happy.
