    You could try a PM to him on this site, but we know he's busier than a cat trying to cover you know what on a tin roof, and you might not hear back for a while. Bet bet would be to absorb the hassle of contacting the publisher (Halffast Publishing in Texas) or Lightsoutthebook.com.

    I have to ask - David, why did you substitute Kroger for HEB? You mentioned the "Kroger" @ 281 and Thousand Oaks, which was my store for 14 years!

    I had to laugh, because HEB pretty much ran Kroger out of San Antonio by about 1994! I remember when my neighborhood Kroger went belly up about 1993 or so - corner of Bitters and 281.

    I have cousins who live very close to where "Silver Hills" seems to be.

    Stuff like that makes the story great, because I know where everything is!

    I'm halfway through the book. It's - well I already said it - great. [beer]

    Because everyone knows Kroger, but not everybody knows what HEB is. Besides, I didn't want to have people laughing at me for buying my groceries from a guy named Butts!

    Glad you're enjoying the book. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

    I just finished my signed copy about a week ago. That was a great book...I was a little sad to finish it. It is one of the few books that I could read again. There could easily be a sequel (*hint^3 ;->)

    I have read OSA, Patriots, and LO (in that order) and LO was the more enjoyable read, although I think all 3 should be read. OSA and Patriots were very depressing versions of what our future reality could be. I think the neighborhood/family aspects of the book gave little sunshine to a bad situation.

    Bravo!
