"Newspaper Days" available from Amazon.com
My latest book, Newspaper Days, has officially hit the market.
The book, which details my journalism career from my first job at the Newton County News in 1977 through my last days at The Carthage Press in 1999 Newspaper Days can be ordered from Amazon.com for $18.95. E-books are available for $6.
The book includes a detailed account of the $1.5 billion libel suit that hastened my departure from newspapers, as well as giving a picture of a day before chain newspaper ownership thoroughly weakened print journalism.
The book will be available at retail outlets in the Joplin area in the near future, as well as from other Internet sites.
