Spring has sprung

Finally, after a terribly tough winter, it appears that spring has finally sprung. Outside we have only experienced liquid precipitation over the past few days and now the sun is smiling down pleasantly on Middle Tennessee.

I have been busily working on four new books at once. Vacation time is approaching and for anyone planning on traveling anywhere in the greater Southeastern US, anywhere from Louisiana to Washington, DC. my latest book, Exploring Our Wonderful World, Book I is a great carry-along tool to point you toward the best of the best spots to hit. If you like historical sites, this volume is loaded with them. If you frequent or would like to check out State and National Parks, so many are highlighted. There is even information on festivals and entertainment venues. A lot of places include driving directions. But best of all, it gives you an overview so you can see what you like as you travel or plan before visiting and map out your trip. I’m planning on taking it with us when we go to New Orleans, a place I have only visited once before.

So go to St. Clair Publications at stclairpublications.com or any Amazon site and get your copy today. I now will be taking all major credit cards at events and book signings as well. More on that later. Happy vacationing in 2015.

Now you can begin your journey Exploring Our Exciting World!

I have just approved and released Exploring Our Exciting World Book One: The Greater Southeastern United States Including Washington, D.C. It should appear on Amazon in one to two days. Years of forethought has gone into this series which will be global is scope and direct the reader to great vacation destinations, giving many directions and a lot of history of each featured area. It includes State and National Parks, Attractions, Festivals, Civil War Battlefields, Monuments, Old Cemeteries, Sports, Best Lakes, Institutions of Higher Learning, and lots of other features, much of which is from firsthand observation and experience. It has a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED notation on many locales. Photos and information passed on by family and friends are also included. It is filled with photos and illustrations.

Future volumes will include writing by other skilled contributors. Like Most Comprehensive Origins of Cliches, Proverbs and Figurative Expressions, it is a unique tome built upon much research and study, and I believe each reader use these volumes for reference many years down the road of life. This one is 609 pages and covers featured areas in 12 states and the District of Columbia, all of which I have personally visited. So check Amazon soon for your personal copy!

St. Andrews State Park, history and fun

This morning we drove to St. Andrews State Park near Panama City Beach. There is a barrier reef there with a swimming area where the kids could have a lot of fun and hunt shells. The park is also rich in history and has a film and a lot of info in the vistiors center which we enjoyed.

History is frascinating, and a number of books which we have published are based on historic events in various countries. Some offer alternate views of history. A mind is like an umbrella–it doesn’t work unless it is open. Check out the authors at http://stclairpublications.com and see what I mean.
