Gray reined in the big claybank horse, unlatching his canteen from the saddle horn and uncorking it; he took a drink of the unbearably hot water. The water was hotter than the boiled coffee he drank. Looking in every direction, studying the landscape, he made sure that he had not veered off course during the dust storm. He took another look, surveying the desolate desert...

  • Finding Luck with Roland McCray (The Adventures of Roland McCray) on Oct. 01, 2013

    Finding Luck draws you right into what life was like for a young man growing up in the country in the 1970s. Within the first pages of "Finding Luck" I was drawn into the story and tumbled along inside a young man's mind as he is hunting wood ducks and dealing internally with the conflict he feels about taking life. Blaine Coleman expertly paints each scene so that you experience country and farm life along with the main character, you're drawn inside and live, for that little bit of time, as him. I highly recommend his book "Finding Luck" for those who enjoy a good coming of age story, but especially for those who grew up on a farm or in the country and wish to be transported back to a simpler time in the world. These stories are woven in such a way that you feel what the boy feels, they are not all lightness and brightness, but more like real life remembered in all of its shaded details. There is a theme of remembrance and a bit of melancholy that runs throughout the book, only serving to make it seem more real. Blaine Coleman is a master writer and I look forward to reading more of his work in the future.
  • The Telegram on Oct. 01, 2013

    Tony has a talent for spinning the reader from the beginning of the tale right back into the past. The ending of "The Telegram" was a nice twist and unexpected. Give it a read and Tony, keep writing!
