"Thanks for joining me here at the official site. Fort St. Jesus Bait and Tackle was inspired by a story I used to tell my kids as we drove through Louisiana on the way to grandma's house. Mostly to shut them up, scare the hell out of them, and generally discourage them from wanting to stop for chicken nuggets. Unlike me, my children aren't from Louisiana, so they have no memories of the swamp and what lives back up in there. Probably just as well. Make no mistake though, Fort St. Jesus Bait and Tackle is no children's book. There's some colorful language and basic hanky spanky goin' on. If you've already read the book, thanks for that. If you haven't, you can find it today on Amazon as an e-book. In case you haven't noticed, lots of people are pulling out Kindles and other devices on which to read their books. Depending on the survey you're looking at, over a third of book readers have read an e-book this year. I was a traditional book guy myself, but the last 20 books I've read have all been e-books. The convenience, better pricing and incredible choices are just too much to ignore. But if you still like ink on paper, don't despair. In a few weeks, Fort St. Jesus Bait and Tackle will be available to order from Amazon as well. And if you like to get your e-book from Barnes and Noble.com, or Apple iBooks, Sony and others, the book will be available on their platforms in the next week or so. You can find those links on my site when they go live. Of course, you can always email me with words of encouragement and love, and ask me things like, "When's the movie coming out?" And keep checking back here. I'll be running some fun promotions for fans that might get you written into my next book. Seriously. And I'm thinking about some official Fort St. Jesus Bait & Tackle t-shirts, too. You'll definitely want to be the first on your block to sport one of those. Okay, that's enough BS. Go buy the book and let me know what you think."
