The Golden Amulet

John began reading The Golden Amulet yesterday morning (Sunday) and again, he didn't stop until he finished it last night. He had a strange smile on his face as I watched him close the book. I asked him what was wrong and he said "I didn't want it to end".
John has commented on your writing as a "refined" Louis L'Amour or Zane Grey! You've got a huge fan there Mark! Just thought I'd let you know.


Reader review

John started reading Spirit of the Snake when we got home and didn't put it down until he was finished which was about 2 AM! He said it was EXCELLENT! I was going to start reading The Golden Amulet today but I guess I'll let John read it first and I'll read Spirit of the Snake.

Received the following letter regarding The Golden Amulet:
Mark, I loved The Golden Amulet. I was very impressed with your knowledge of sailing the high seas in the 1800s. Your book is fast paced with a great story line. It is imaginative, exciting and suspenseful - a real page turner for me. Your friend, R.D.

Upcoming events

Thursday (Aug. 6) I am scheduled to be a guest speaker at the Noon Lions Club in Mineral Wells. Looking forward to that. On Saturday, Aug. 15, I'll be at the Strawn Museum for a book signing, noon-3 p.m. Hope to see a number of folks I haven't got to visit with in a long time. Then, Sept. 26, I'll be at the Old Post Office Museum and Art Center in Graham as a guest speaker for that community's Western Heritage Days. Also, noticed that Target is now carrying The Golden Amulet.
