Fan letters continue to arrive long after books are published, proof that people enjoy books years after they are out-of-print. A recent fan letter written in Old English Script, is the most unique fan letter, and book order, I've received since Behind These Mountains, Vol. 1 became available in November, 1982. The letter writer is elderly, with a wealth of history included in the letter which ends with, 'I would honor you, by just outright buying a 3 volume set.... bound of course...yer'a good read... and I mite add, yer folk's ˜ad a heckava sense of humor.....naming you sech!'
As the reviews for Coastal Access start to come in, I'm very pleased that the novel is being so well accepted. Many thanks, to all of you who took the time to crit. Coastal Access while it was in the development stage. I am told by many that this installment of the Tucker Lee Anderson series is better than the first, Beneath The Dune, and as many of you know, that novel did and is still doing quite well.
