The First Edition – September 2013
Thanks for visiting this website for my debut novel, Vendetta Stone. It is the culmination of what turned out to be about a five-year project, going through several rewrites and other delays. The sequel won’t take near as long. I promise.
I enjoyed a great, thirty-six-year career run as a sports writer and copy editor at The Tennessean and Gannett, but now it’s time to do other things with my life. My goals as a journalist, author and actor (I’m still working on that last one) are to inform, inspire or entertain. In this book, I think I’ve accomplished all three. That, of course, will be up to you to determine, and I would love to hear your feedback.
This is all very new to me, but I think it’s going to be a lot of fun for both of us. I’ve been on Facebook for less than two years, I’m just starting to blog, and I don’t yet Tweet. Baby steps, Tom. But I am looking forward to continuing down this post-newspaper path, and I hope you will join me. Invite your friends; word of mouth is going to be the key to making this venture a success.
