Shadow Warrior by T.L. Davis

Shadow Soldier by [Davis, T.L.]

The story of J.D. Wilkes is the story of people’s lives, of hard times, of redemption, real life choices and real life consequences. One should put away preconceived notions of what defines a “Western” when considering Shadow Soldier. J.D. Wilkes is three dimensional, not always right and not always moral.

$25 Gift Certificate at Carolina Readiness

  1. Van Horn says:

    Save two seats for me for the Conference…D. and I will be staying in Murphy and commute daily. My check will go out tomorrow, Aug.7. Additionally, I would be prepared to speak, if needed, on the issue of, ‘a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles’, and if a ‘praxis’ session is needed, I am prepared to speak on, ‘practical considerations for portable/off grid amateur radio for the new operator’. I will come also prepared to take notes, as the next weekend will be Brock’s Pat Con, and relaying to the Eastern part of the state a summary of yours’, might be helpful.
    Thanks for the invite!

  12. Virgil Kane says:

    Can you expound on the fee vs admittance? As I read it, I can send payment, but if I’m not in the first 90, then I can’t attend and I don’t get a refund. Is that correct?

    • David says:

      The fee is for two meals and to partially reimburse speaker travel costs. No one will be charged unless they attend the conference. Of course you would get a refund but more likely the check would never be cashed and you would be notified prior to the event. As of 8/14, 1/3 of the conference is confirmed.

    • David says:

      I revised the post. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  13. JnotJ says:

    Any chance the conference will be video broadcast or recorded and uploaded? I know video and play back use a lot of bandwidth, but for those of us that can’t make it?

    • David says:

      I know it will not be broadcast live or streamed. It may be partially uploaded later to YouTube (for however long they allow it up).

  14. Doug Lawton says:

    Do you have a schedule of events with times of starting available yet? Trying to decide whether to commute or find a place to stay….

  27. David, I’m a little late getting this info, but my husband and I are considering making the trek. We live in Havelock. I wonder if you know which of the RV campsites is closest to the event. ( I don’t think staying on the conference site is what we really want to do. We have dogs that travel with us, and cannot leave them all day, so would like it close enough to check on them at least once.) Also, is there still space available. I realize that I’m running close to the stones, but as long as we can find a place to stay and nothing untoward happens, we would like to attend. Thanks for any help.

  28. David, Talked to my husband and checked out some things. Looks like Persimmon Creek Campground is very close to the conference site. I will put a check in the mail today.
