Luis Santana by Laura Hollingsworth

I have been working all week on the technical aspects of book three, so I am afraid I don't have an actual chapter for you this week. I am wrapping up all the story lines in book three, so it's imperative that I get the timing of the events in the story to happen on a tight schedule. That is harder than it might seem (particularly for me), and I've been obsessing over it all week, probably with smoke and the smell of overheated wiring pouring out of my ears. I didn't want to distract myself. I finished all that up today, so there will be a chapter next week. 

But I do have something to offer you this week that I hope you will enjoy as much as I have. Here is an adorable picture of everyone's favorite juvenile delinquent by the talented Laura Hollingsworth.

She did some things here I absolutely love. I love that he appears to be hiding something behind his back, and that he's barefoot. In my mind, this isn't a static picture, it's animated. I can see the movement of him clowning around and shifting on his feet.

¡Ay, caramba, Luis! You're going to be heartbreaker some day, young man.

Ok, a comment not at all related to the artwork posted here (which, by the way, is awesome), but I've been rereading the story and came across your post about TV shows with a Western theme.

Do I even need to mention the name "Longmire" to you? It's in season 3 now, so you're probably already aware of it, but if not, you should really check it out. The story is set in present day, but it's about as Western as it gets.

You know, I don't get any regular network TV, so yeah, y'all do have to give me a heads up! I sometimes am out of the loop as far as shows I should watch goes (even though I do try to look for stuff sometimes). So no, I didn't know about this show until this weekend, believe it or not. Looks like something I need to give a look!

Thanks for the tip. Added it to the queue!

You probably should yes, it's a great show. Well, as long as you can overlook the fact that quiet, rural Absaroka (don't I recognize that name from somewhere?) County has a body count higher than South Central L.A. anyway.
