In 2000, my first book Bill Cherry's Galveston Memories was published by a small Texas press, VanJus Press.
Amazingly, the thing sold many, many thousands of copies.
Today, used copies sell for between 3 and 4 times the original cover price, while new copies that were horded by distributors being several hundred dollars each.
For a few months after Hurricane Ike, they were selling for more than $900 a copy.
Within the past few days, I've published a second round of stories. This time in the e-Book format, and it's available at amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.com. By the end of October, it will also be up at the Apple Store, etc.
The price is just shy of 10 bucks.
While the Damon Runyon-esque tales took place in Galveston, and are true, the only reason they happened there than elsewhere is because the Island is far more quirky than any other place you've ever lived or visited.
If you like this kind of stuff, you're sure to like the new e-Book just as well as readers did who bought my first book, and very loyal followers who have read some or all of the more than 700 newspaper columns I've written about the Island.
