Roy M. Griffis – Storyteller

Month: March 2015

Let’s stop to reflect on someone doing good, and lot of it.

Gonna take a break from the novel and the other efforts (Right-Wing Riot, ahem) to share the important work someone is doing.  Elephants hold a special place in my heart and this short video gives just a taste of the contributions a very kind and loving woman has been making for over 25 years in Nairobi, caring for orphaned elephants.

 

You can learn more about her work here, and the on-going efforts of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the foundation that helps support what she does.  Had I riches, I’d give a lot of them to these folks.  They are, in fact, doing God’s work.

If, like me, you believe that to change the culture we need to change the story that culture tells itself, then here’s an opportunity to make the change real right now.

As you know, the book is available in paperback at Amazon,Barnes & Noble, and other brick n’ mortar sites.  You can get the ebook at Amazon, iTunes, Barnes and Noble, and over 20 other sites, and it’s an audio book from Audible!  Something about that last part is just pretty damn cool.

My “blazing” debut.

This was lovely and wholly unexpected.  TheBlaze.com ran an excerpt from the opening of Volume One of the Lonesome George Chronicles, The Big Bang.    One major reason it was so nice was because it really excited my Mom.  She’s a fan of Glenn Beck, and after having to read my stuff ever since I was a wee annoying lad of seven, she was thrill to see all of her decades of patience and encouragement pay off with my appearance in the virtual pages of The Blaze.   (Love ya, Mom!)
