Border’s Books Claims Bankruptcy

I just had some bad news today. Borders Books is claiming bankruptcy. I did a signing at my local Borders store in Salem, Oregon on November 6th. I have not received payment for  the books I sold there yet. It has been over ninety days.

The manager told me on the phone that another company has taken over paying the bills, and I will have to fill out a claim to try to get my payment from Borders. It doesn’t look good, but God is in charge, and what ever happens, it was meant to be.

I will keep you posted each day on the progress of this continuing saga.  


Think on this:

  • All things work to the good to those who believe.
  • Life will go on if something happens in your life that is devastating. God has a plan , even through this storm.
  • Those who persevere, are the ones who will have many crowns when they are in heaven.
  • It is always darkest just before the morning dawn.
  • Wait on the LORD, because He is with you always.

What do you Want to Accomplish in 2011?

I told you in my last post that I will be starting up a new series of posts that talk about, “Becoming Famous Before you are Famous.” It will be excerpts from my book of the same title.

I have been busy arranging signings for the new year. I just finalized a signing for April 16th at Border’s Books on Lancaster Drive in Salem, Oregon from 2-4 P.M.

I will also be scheduling two signings at Eola Hills Winery in Rickreall, Oregon for Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. Those signings do not have times yet, so be checking this site for more information.

I will be signing books at the Oregon State Fair next fall for seven days in a row.

My book will be in many more stores in Oregon soon as well. That is the top priority for me in 2011. I will be contacting any stores that carry books or gifts.

You can order a book right from this site by clicking on the Bookstore tab above. It will direct you from there. If you order from this site, you will be mailed a copy of the book with a personal note, and autograph. That will not happen at any other outlet you can get books from.

I am also on,, and  www.Barnes& sites.

The thought of the day….

It is a new year. What do you want to accomplish in 2011? How about finding new ways to serve the Lord? I know, you serve Him daily now, but what new things could you do to serve Him even more?
