Folsom’s in Color

Folsom's 22I wanted to share this colorized picture of William M. Gray, Folsom’s 22nd execution. My son has been playing around with Photoshop, and this one particular shot has always stood out to him, so he wanted to see what he could do with it. Given the information surrounding Gray’s case, I’m not entirely convinced he committed the crime for which he hanged. I’ll leave you with his last words.

” . . . there could be no God, else an innocent man would not be hanged.”

“The matter-of-fact detailing of events in the entries does not make for dull reading. These individual stories are not only mini-biographies but also an informal history of California.”

Book Signing at Barnes & Noble

For those of you in the area (and needing to spend those B&N gift cards you get for Christmas) . . . I’ll be signing copies of Folsom’s 93 at Barnes & Noble at Centerra in Loveland, CO on January 4, 2014 from 12:00 p.m. to 6 p.m. Come by and chat with me—nothing’s worse than a lonely author sitting all by themselves at a table with no one to talk to. (My family can only take so much before they get bored and find something else to do). Hope to see you there!
