Skirvin Sales Are Going Well!

Well, it's been awhile since we've posted. Forgive us, but 2009 was a tough year where we had to totally rebuild our main site,, while also finishing and getting "Skirvin" published.
The good news is "Skirvin" is almost sold out and a second printing is coming. And the book is also a finalist for best non-fiction and best design at the 2010 Oklahoma Book Awards.
Coming soon: a big new push for OKC history.

Great Show on Cable 20

I know the programming on Cox Cable 20 isn't always the most exciting viewing, but it's starting to gain more and more appeal now that the networks have resorted to nothing but reality shows with the ongoing writers' strike. Catch the January city council show with Ward 4 Councilman Pete White, and you'll hear a great history of south Oklahoma City with attorney John Michael Williams and Capitol Hill Beacon Publisher Jim Sellers.
I know they play the show on a loop, so my best advice for catching it is to simply flip to Cox 20 every now and then and look for the guy to the left.
