On Friday, December 12, 2014, I signed copies of Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles–Book One, at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event occurred during the next to last day of the National Finals Rodeo, which is held annually in Las Vegas.
Lauren Beth Murphy, my older daughter, flew in from California to help and was the “belle of the ball” as Jenny McNabb, Will Braddock’s friend in The Iron Horse Chronicles. Beth sewed the dress and bonnet especially for this book signing event. Complete with period shoes, “Jenny” entertained the patrons of South Point as they hurried past our location on their way to a rodeo event or in search of the slot machine that would reward them with a big payout. Through her efforts, booklovers were guided to the signing table where I sold and autographed copies of Eagle Talons. For those who were more interested in knowing if an electronic version were available, Beth gave them a bookmark containing information on how to access the book online.

The second book in my trilogy will be released by Five Star Publishing in October 2015, and I look forward to December 2015, when once again I can be part of South Point’s celebratory activities during the National Finals Rodeo.
