March 5, 2008 Bonus Blog Post
Had to drive down into the Beast yesterday to fix the broken glass on the Wyatt scratchboard I sold yesterday. I was carrying it and it slipped out of my hand and as I brought my knee up to stop the fall, I shattered the glass. Drove down to Michael Feldman's frame shop at 32nd Street and Thunderbird and Joshua fixed it for me. Didn't charge me. Great guys.

On the way back out to Cave Creek I stopped at Desert Ridge and went into Barnes & Noble to see our rack position. As usual, Cowboys & Indians was front and center, while True West was hidden in the back row with only the top showing. Did what any self-respecting (or should that be self-righteous?) publisher would do: traded rack positions. Actually, I didn't put C&I in the back, I just brought TW up to the front. Now if I could only do that in the 1,000+ other outlets we are hidden in, we might have a chance at a decent sell-thru.

But I digress. Bought a magazine on owls, plus some other titles, like, Su Casa, Log Home Living and Western Art Collector which has a big spread on Ed and Rose Marie Mell and his art. Very sweet.

Then went over to Aaron Brothers and bought some art supplies ($75 Sue account).

Got up this morning and bailed into amber glow owls. Did six:

Still not haunting enough. Owls were feared by the oldtime Apaches as death omens and we are planning a series of owls in the graphic novel. By the way, these are sketches # 5,894 thru 5,900.
