Yay! My books are here!

I just picked up my shipment of Alvin Coffey: The True Story of an African American Forty-Niner. It’s real! It’s here! Would you like to get a copy? Boy, do I have them. I will soon have it on Amazon and at various vendors.

Alvin Coffey was a real person, born into slavery, who with determination and hope won freedom for himself and his wife and children. It’s an inspiring story and a chapter in American and California history that needs to be better known.

I am grateful for all the help I received from Alvin and Mahala Coffey’s great-great-granddaughter, Jeannette Molson. Steve Ferchaud did a great job with the illustrations and Carla Resnick made it look professional. I can’t wait to start telling people about this new book.

    I just finished reading the Enterprise article today – I am the Friends of the Colusa COunty Library person and we offer author’s evenings to our community during the year. Would you be interested in coming to Colusa in the Fall and presenting your book on Alvin Coffey to us. We offer a $100 stipend and people love to purchase the book if you can bring some.
