24 Sep Viva El Paso!!! A Celebration of a Texas City!!!
As you know, my wife, Joan, and I were in El Paso for the release and launch as my publisher, Morgan James Publishing, felt that, especially in view of the recent tragedy there, that El Paso would be the best physical place to launch and release my book on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019! They were right, as the launch went way beyond our expectations!! This is the link to the interview by KTSM – NBC that ran the whole day from 8:00 am to 11:00 pm:
The UTEP Bookstore and the two Barnes & Noble Stores in El Paso all cooperated beautifully, especially the one at Fountains @ Farrah (which is near the Walmart where the tragedy occurred! The two-day book sales were records for the three bookstores and made El Paso Sunrise into a west Texas BESTSELLER!! The media coverage and full support of the entire El Paso legal community, of which I was a part of during the 15 years that I lived and practiced law there, resulted in long lines outside the stores and was an almost healing event for this great west Texas city!!
Joan and I had a 4-day date in El Paso and had a wonderful, magical time, especially at Cafe’ Central, the best restaurant in El Paso and in west Texas. (It’s also in the book.) It was really nostalgic for me and a great experience for Joan – she said on the way back, “I really wouldn’t mind living in El Paso!” The almost 1,600’ mile drive was, of course, exhausting!!
