http://bookhimdanno.blogspot.com/ Great 5 star review if Kings of Colorado
Let's not talk high-sounding phrases. Let's not use old words, shopworn words, words like "glory" and "peace" without thinking exactly what they mean. There's no "glory" in killing. There's no "glory" in maiming men. There are the glorious dead, but they would be more glorious living. The most glorious thing is life. And we who are alive must cling to it, each of us helping. (John Pershing- from the book)
Pershing is one of America's unsung heroes. The first man to be promoted to General of the Armies, he's largely responsible for winning WWI but is all but forgotten today. John Perry does an admirable job of reminding the rest of us who General John J. Pershing was and why he deserves our respect and a place in history.

Sales are strange!
I applaud Kindle and the new digital revolution for allowing
me to publish and sell my books. I’ve spent the better part of the last twenty
years writing non-stop and have accrued quite a collection. Like a diligent
author, I market and promote heavily online, but have yet to hire an actual
publicity person (that will come in time). That said, I just got my monthly
royalty statement from Kindle Direct Publishing. Now, the amount won’t allow me
to quit my job and move to Key West,
but it’s a start. So, why have I given this post this title; because it’s true;
sales are strange! Though my sales are steadily increasing each month, they are
so wildly unpredictable it seems to have no logic. For example, I sold an
average of three to ten books a day in October. And believe me, I’m very happy
with those numbers. But here’s the thing, doing everything exactly the same:
same marketing, promotion, and social media postings, my sales completely cut
off so far this month. Literally, not one sale for the last two weeks. Then,
this morning I checked and I’ve got sales. Lots of sales. Now, I don’t know if
Kindle stats have been down for the last two weeks or what, but the numbers are
in. To all who bought a book yesterday, thanks! And to whatever book-Gods there
may be floating around in the celestial heavens, thanks for this magic spell.
And please check out my latest interview.
