I had read most all of the Hardyville series but I received a book yesterday and it reads GREAT, even better than before and I can't wait to finish it, even though I know what's happening or at least I think I do.

A Wonderful book and a great read. Would make a super Christmas gift, especially at these low prices.

Highly recommended, fine story and well, Claire wrote it.

Woo hoo! More Claire!

Thanks for the tip Bill. I was going to order "the Hardyville Tales" at $15 thru BHM (and I like to support them), but this sounds like a better deal.

The $25 combined deal is sold out, so now the combined price is $30, still autographed and still including shipping.

I ordered mine. I've always thoroughly enjoyed Claire's writing style as well as her content. Can't wait!

Got email from Paypal saying my books have shipped. Yay!

USPS media mail takes 8 days to get across the country, so I won't have it until the middle of next week. Not so yay.

Received both my books today. But I have a very big problem. Which one to start first. Oh, woe is me.  :BangHead:

Lucky guys. You must live closer to the left coast than I. USPS predicts Wednesday for mine.

It's also the state of Lincoln. You have my sympathy.  :shakehead:

Mine are "on the way" or so I am told by email.
I got one of the BHM copies of the Hardyville book and then saw the offer directly from Claire so I HAD TO  go ahead and get them from her so I could get the signature inside.
I can skip a meal or two to have the TADGOF's signature in my very own copies of those two books.
Now I have to work on getting Joel to sign a couple of his books [that I already own] for me.
I've got George Potter and soon Claire so Joel is my next author's signature goal.

They got here today and I even have a "misprint" issue ... Tah Dah !

Claire, being the generous person she is, autographed my copy and left the "E" off of her last name on the signature.

SO .... not only do I have a new, autographed copy but one with an only once hand written imperfection.

Now I can bug her about sending me a sticky note with an "E" on it to add to the book ... 'snicker, snicker'

Just joking Claire.

Still waiting, and with the volume she's dealing with I may be waiting for a while.

I'm interested to see how she laid out the Hardyville book, because I know it's not a list of straight reprints.  She worked pretty hard on that one.

For those who have read The Bad Attitude Guide To Good Citizenship book, Claire needs reviews on Amazon.

***I have just learned that one must have purchased something from Amazon before they leave a review and I never have purchased from Amazon that I can remember...I always used my wife's account...so I think I'll go wake her up and get her account info.....uhh  :shakehead: maybe I should wait until morning to talk with my wife after she awakens and has her coffee.

Sent in a subscription to "Backwoods Home" magazine for a three year stretch. I guess they were out of the free books that were offered with a three year subscription because they sent me "Hardyville Tales".  I ain't complaining, it is a good read!

I hear that good wine and good women improve
with age. (I don't know nothing about either.
I like the ones that taste good.)

I finally got around to reading my autographed copy and thoroughly enjoyed my return to Hardyville. Thanks, Claire.
