Political Signs, Ads and Interviews

As was noted previously, I'm running to be elected to the St. Paris Village Council.

About 20 Political Signs have been placed around town.

Thank you to all who volunteered
and/or allowed me to place signs in your yards!

I've had several interviews with the Springfield Sun News and the Urbana Daily Citizen (with one more I believe yet to be published after a phone interview).

Urbana Daily Citizen
(Yes, they referred to me by my first name)

I've run an ad in The Booster.

Booster Ad
 And yes, I've been asked questions by the citizens around town. My goal is to be honest and open-minded in all discussions. Always fun and interesting (okay usually fun but always interesting).

In any case, in about a week we'll see what happens.

Flank Hawk soon to be an Audiobook!

My publisher has a contract in the mail for Flank Hawk to be an audiobook.

I was able to listen to the reader's audition and it was excellent. I listen to quite a few audiobooks while driving and his voice, inflection, pacing, etc. is already one of my favorites.

Details will follow.
