Truck Photos

Have had some requests for photos of Irma, the main character in Truck: A Love Story (audio version available here).

Click on photos to enlarge.

Trucks, Chickens, Bachelors, Indies

Indies, not undies.

Over on the sneezingcow YouTube channel we just reposted some footage back from when Truck was given a nice award. I couldn’t be at the ceremony because I was headed out on book tour, so we shot this video, which includes a big thank you to independent booksellers, me demonstrating how to write a book and decorate your office like a bachelor, footage of me and my beloved 1951 International L-120 pickup truck, and a demonstration of how to hypnotize a chicken.

Pictures from France

I’ve done several posts about the 2009 Red Power Parade (perhaps because I got to be grand marshal of a parade consisting of nothing but International Harvesters…surely a Top Ten country boy moment) (as a result of this book), and here’s another one inspired by an email I just received from Jean Cointe, an International Harvester dealer and aficionado from France.  Seems Jean was clearing out his digital camera and found these two photos:

Fearless leader “Other Mike” reviews the parade route.

You may be the Grand Marshal, but when the Scout runs dry halfway through the parade, you will bail out and push just like everybody else!
