After all this time, it's finally getting easier to talk about you. To remember you without getting tears every single time. Without that tightness in my jaw as I fight them.

No matter what, November always slams me down. I've been a hot mess pretty much starting the week of deer season. I'm not proud of myself for that. Otherwise, I think it's been a pretty good year. Up until a couple of months ago.

I sent my best friend to see you. I know you were there to meet Pete when he left my arms. I told him to give you a big kiss from me. I loved that dog maybe as much as anyone ever loved a kid. Losing him was almost as bad as losing you. Because even though I miss you every day, that grief that feels like it could easily kill you had faded some.

It came back fresh and just as knife-like when I realized I was going to lose Pete.

Cowboy Dreamin’

LibaryCon 2017

I'll be at LibraryCon 2017 this year! It starts at 11am August 19th in Springfield, MO at the Library Center on Campbell. You'll get to see super heroes, animae characters, go to tutorials, pick up awesome swag, and of course...see The Heckmasters.

Cowboy Six Pack

So didja get the new box set yet?
Six hot cowboys for that low, low price of 99 cents?
Mine's about a guy in a fictional Oklahoma town who takes over running his family's stockyard. He meets a woman in a bar, tries to buy her a drink, and gets shut down. Then he witnesses an argument between her and another guy. Come to find out later, he's her new boss. And she's expecting a bundle of joy. It's a sweet little story about family and forgiveness. Here's an excerpt:

“I’m meeting someone.” The petite brunette had the words out of her mouth before Dean could set the glass down on the bar beside her. She shouted over the lousy rendition of ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’, but didn’t spare him a glance. “It’s a free drink. I’m not asking for your phone number.” He glared at the band over his shoulder, but they were midway through the song and unlikely to quit playing because he wanted to talk to a woman. “I don’t want it.” She tipped her half empty glass toward him. “You loo…
