Fun to hear via Twitter yesterday that my Novel, The Blackberry Bush, has made the INSPY awards shortlist for 2011 General Fiction.

Also still in the running for a Pulitzer Prize, although that’s a bit of a long shot :-).

I “wordled” the entire text of the novel and came up with this fascinating mosaic:

The website for the novel continues to get good traffic: Please click on for in-depth information.


The book is available on the shelves at Barnes and Noble and Walmart. Order it right now on Amazon or Kindle.

It includes a study guide in the back for book clubs, classes, and groups.

My apologies for not posting recently. Still getting 150 page views a day, so thanks so much for continuing to read and comment.

The reason is that I have started a new radio show, called The Bottom Line with co-host Roger Marsh.

It’s a current events drive-home show with a free-market and family-values Christian point of view.

It’s on KBRT AM 740 from 3pm to 5pm Pacific Time.

KBRT reaches all of coastal Southern California and has a very strong signal.

You also can listen live worldwide at on any computer, laptop, or smartphone.

Its is NOT podcast; the shows are not recorded. But you can use the TuneIn app to record the show for later listening. Currently (October 2011) it is still listed under the previous show’s name “Talk from the Heart.” That will be updated soon.

You can listen in on your smartphone thru FlyCast at

Advertisers for the show have experienced dramatic increases in sales/customers. Contact Pam Christian at or call her at 714-754-4450.

Thanks for listening in!
