Congratulations.

David Cranmer said...

JR, I've heard from two people already who said Eastwood but I can see a little Chuck there.

Diane, If you mean CL and the Masked Devil than, yes, that was what I was going for. And thank you for putting in an order already.

Leah, This saw first light over a year ago (and the months since) on our Two Sentence Tuesdays we participate in.

my most anticipated book of the new year.

Scott Parker said...

My #1 book purchase in January. Congrats on the published story. And the cover is sa-weet!

David Cranmer said...

Evan, Thanks but how many books again it was you said you read a year?

Scott, Yeah I thought they did a great job with the artwork. According to Mr Parnham: "cover illustration designed by Jennifer Smith-Mayo based on an original painting by David McAllister."

Just want to tell you that I'm really proud of all you've accomplished in the past year and it's wonderful to see all your hard work taking root. Congrats D!

David Cranmer said...

Thanks everyone. Most credit,of course, goes to Nik, Charlie, and I.J. I'm very proud to be a part of this fine ensemble.

And special thanks to the humble dMix who looked at every rough draft and every so called last polish. And Elaine for seeing the forest for the trees (how's that old saying?) with the opening paragraph.

Dave King said...

Lee Hughes said...

Thanks for the shout out, David. The cover looks dynamic and I love the title too. I hope Cash Laramie becomes a "Cash Franchise" for you. (Sorry for corny pun, couldn't resist.)

It's always gratifying to see a comrade in print, especially one who works as hard as you and helps other writers.
