The Kid Who Wasn’t There, Part 2 of 2 Parts


dontravis.com blog post #473  Photo Courtesy of uplash.com   If anyone noticed the change in the numbering above, it’s because the web site told me of all the posts I’d not counted. So I brought it up to date.   Last week Noah Bainbridge, a dedicated loner, was flabbergasted to discover he’d fallen in love with John Llewellyn, a handsome jock he’d been tutoring in Algebra.

dontravis.com blog post #415 Photo courtesy of uplash.com The guest post last week by Don Morgan of the beginning of his new book Miasma, got a lot of hits but few comments.

MIASMA, A Guest Post by Donald T. Morgan


 dontravis.com blog post #414 The story about NIGHT FRIENDS seemed to go over well. I had over 10,000 hists for the month… small potatoes to some, but a bunch for me. Hong Kong readers still held the lead at the end, the the interest we spread pretty well around the globe. This week, I asked my other fellow scrivener from Oklahoma to do a guest post. I know he’s working on a new book and thought he might want to try out some of it. Sure enough, he did. Attached is the prologue and first chapter from a novel entitled MIASMA, the story of an unusual friendship between and old White man and a ten-year-old Black girl in 1940s Oklahoma when Jim Crow was king.

It was the listing agent for the Malpais Trail property. Antonescu’s offer had been accepted. I put down the phone not certain how I felt about that. It meant I would have to face him...

NIGHT FRIENDS, Part 3 of 4 Parts


 dontravis.com blog post #412   Last week ended with Chad standing on the porch of a remote home with a weird stranger. Antonescu asks if they can go inside. ***** NIGHT FRIENDS “Sure,” I said, fumbling with the Multiple Listing keybox. It took a little longer than it should have, but we were soon inside. Antonescu donned a heavily smoked, wrap-around pair of shades and made a slow, methodical round of each of the rooms. Within thirty minutes, he turned to face me. “I like it. It will serve me nicely. Do you think an offer of three hundred thousand would be accepted?” “I don’t know,” I answered frankly. “The listing agent says they’re motivated.” “Motivated,” he repeated softly. “That means ...
