brazil-mdMaybe I should try selling my books in Brazil. In the last 30 days, my website,, has had 310 views from the USA and 53 from Brazil. Eight views have come from Italy, five from France, and four each from Germany and Australia.

brazil cityI’ve been getting lots of hits from Brazil ever since the web site started early in 2012. I’ve also gotten hits from every continent in the world except Antarctica. Maybe people everywhere soon will read my books about the Gateway Arch, St. Louis Germans, and South Side Hoosiers and Scrubby Dutch.

Meanwhile, if you’re reading overseas, drop me a line, either at the bottom of this page or at my e-mail address, Talk to you soon.
