Strange feeling! Since 1962, one or more books have been constantly in my head or on my desk. How many titles? I lost track; 30 maybe, with several publishers. Now my final print book is on its way—cover photo above.
But you just can’t quit writing cold turkey. We’re going digital, guided by webmaster Jackie, with www.lloydsstorytree.com as a holding tank. Take a look now and then.
As probably you know, we give away Wordshed Mission books—30,000-plus to date. Over $100,000 have come from somewhere to cover costs. Occasional book table sales have fed the kitty. Tech help, printing, and distribution for How Do Know That’s a Tooth? will eat about $5,000—1,000 copies. The bill will come due in about three weeks.
Thanks to many already onboard, we have about $1,000. Visa and MasterCard drool in the wings. You can help disappoint them. Ten bucks will get you a signed copy, postpaid. If you request several, I’ll be pleased. Send money on delivery. Email requests: mattson.lloyd1 at gmail.com (we don’t list e-links). Include mail address. My snail mail: 127 E Calvary Road, Duluth MN 55803.
Sunday evening, November 9, 6:30, we’ll introduce the book at a campmeeting sing. Emmanuel Baptist, 1505 Eklund Ave, Duluth. Accordions, fiddle, Kevin and his 12-string, a country chorus, and Grandpa Lloyd’s Heavenly Harmonica. We’ll pass the hat for the book and give a copy to every family attending. Coffee and goodies? Of course.
The wooly mammoth tooth that gave the book its name appears in the lower left of the cover photo. Ancient bones framing my father’s old Bible pictures God’s two books.
How Do Know That’s a Tooth? closes out my 52-year book-producing career. Thanks for your prayers and help.
Old Grandpa Lloyd
