Cheyenne Courthouse as it was back in the
day. 
Much of the  drama and action takes
place here as it has been since the Grand
Saga began, but in A PLACE AMONG
HEROES, Book 1, we are heading out...
...destiny is calling our heroes onward.

 




The Liberty & Property Legends
Volume Five begins...

So, so thrilled to announce that Volume Five has arrived at last, starting with A PLACE AMONG HEROES Book 1, Rise of Hope. Yes, that's right - Volume 5 will have its own set of instalments!
   Lots of reading, lots of adventure, romance and epic stuff is heading this way. You know me, I love to talk up the epic, I guess I must be wired that way.
   But as with previous volumes, this one is also full of love and enduring friendship, dotted with surprises so our new characters and those well-loved ones can get on with their quests and deepest desires. 
   For in this volume, conflict, pain and despair are shouldered by the desire for faith and hope and that elusive 'pursuit of happiness'. And don't forget trains, because the locomotive moved the wonders, the romance, the business and the nation's deepest desires of the Gilded Age across America...


  This is Reuben! You will meet him and other
wonderful characters in A PLACE AMONG HEROES Book 1 Rise of Hope. He doesn't drive a train, no, but that's kinda the point with him.

Why the addition of the butterfly motif
for Volume 5?

We are in brave pursuit of happiness and
it's not going to be easy or simple. However...

'Happiness is like a butterfly; the more
you chase it, the more it will elude you,
but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.' 

Henry David Thoreau
