“Days of Soup and Holler,” ~ My New Book!

It’s available wherever you purchase books online – Amazon and Barnes & Noble to name a couple.
This is the back cover of the book – sorry it’s blurry – it’s a copy from Amazon.

And just for fun – here is the Table of Contents. I am drawn to titles, so perhaps some of these will entice you.
