Born in the middle of the 20th century (an experience he denies remembering but steadfastly refuses to reinact on the pretext of being too old), Jon Etheredge has labored a lifetime to avenge his honor, sullied in the fourth grade where he met and subsequently agitated Mrs. Ebinotia Mummelsome, a horrid rat of a woman who gave him a D-minus in Citizenship, tainting his permanent record...permanently.

He lives on a small tree farm in East Central Mississippi, the cultural headwaters of blues, jazz, and American literature. All the best writers come from Mississippi. Also catfish.

No, my books usually take a couple of years to before they're ready. That said, I've been busy on my next novel, "Passable Cats", and just to stay fresh, I've penned a few free short stories on my blog (http://jonetheredge.com). I'd love to hear your opinion of the latest story, "Assateague". It's a tad longish at just under 7K words.

What's with the book market nowadays? I can't give away my books unless I become a serial killer and get interviewed on Fox & Friends (and even then, I have include a kitten with each book). We're re-releasing "Dream Talker" with a new cover and hopefully, endorsements from the Midwest Book Review and others. Wasn't I supposed to be rich and famous by now?(less)

Carole Gill Hi Jon, thanks for accepting!

JoAnn Hill Hi Jon, Sounds to me like congratulations are in order. So great"Dream Talker has been picked up. I thoroughly enjoyed giving it a read through. Finally I'm starting on another book. I'm slow at my writing, so it's going to take a while. My blog has kept me occupied. I'm up to 2,240 hit's though. I will recommend "Dream Talker to my daughter and friends.
Best of luck with it! JoAnn Hill P.S. Love your bio.

On the positive side, while you lost the farm, as a fellow flying enthusiast, you have have avoided buying the farm.

JoAnn Hill Hello Jon,
Hope I caught you in time. I had suggested you send the new text to my Kindle, but in thinking it over, I think the pdf would be better. With that I can type in suggestions. Let me know what I should be doing. Your dealing with a novice computer operator here you know.

JoAnn Hill Hi Jon, I'm looking forward to seeing what you do to Abigail Dare.I enjoyed it a great deal. I have been working on 9 posts for the authors marketing group I'm takig part in, and useing excerpts from various chapters in my book, and I'm amazed and dissapointed in how many mistakes I have found. I'd like to rewite too. I payed a hefty sum to an editor, supposed to be a really good one. How is your wife doing with reading for me? I hope she hasn't given up.I'll be throughly interested in what she has to say. JoAnn
