Month of May Special Offer!

Do you have graduation gifts looming in the near future? Or birthdays or anniversaries where you just don’t know of an appropriate, thoughtful gift idea?

Let me suggest that for some of your gift-giving needs, you need go no further than the end of this post for a solution.

For the month of May only, you can get a signed second edition copy of Slow Road Home plus a set of Blue Ridge Parkway or Floyd County note cards for only $25 delivered. That’s $4 off the usual price, and more than that if you’re from Virginia. I’ll pay state taxes too on this special offer.


ONE BOOK ~ FIVE NOTE CARDS ~ ONE EASY PRICE!.


Details for ordering by check are HERE. Order soon; note card sets are limited. (PayPal transfers also possible, email me.)
