Sportsman's legacy reissued

Exciting news on the publishing front!  Sportsman's Legacy has been reissued.  The book was originally published in 1993 as a memoir that quietly celebrated the amazing bond that Bill and his father shared.  The expanded edition includes the complete original text, plus:

  • more than 60 photos
  • seven additional chapters
  • The Phil 'n' Bill Show
  • Introductions by Bill's wife, Vicki, and his son Mike (that's me!)

The book is available from Amazon, or can be ordered directly from sportsmanslegacy.com.  Special thanks to Vicki for taking on this project!

Kindle Editions now available

Thirty-nine of Bill's books are now available as Kindle Editions via Amazon!  These include some hard-to-find early Brady mysteries, as well as collaborations with Phillip Craig, a number of fishing/hunting collections, and the entire Stoney Calhoun series.  Hope many of you will enjoy these books in their new format!

Kobo, nook, ibooks...and audio books, too!

Last year, we announced that most of Bill's books were being made available as Kindle editions.  The books are also available in most other popular e-book formats, including Kobo, Nook and iBooks.  Many of the titles are also available through Audible  or as audiobooks on the iTunes Store.  Some of the older, out-of-print books are now just a click or two away!

Brief Amazon update:  A couple weeks back I announced that this website would be partnering with Amazon's Associates program, meaning that "click-throughs" from here to Amazon's site would result in a small kick back for this website.  Well, Amazon rejected my application, stating that there was not enough "original content."  I'll aim to spruce up the site over the next few months and take another run at the Associates program.  In the meantime, the click-throughs do not generate any revenue for this site. Stay tuned...
