Tuesday ebook spotlight - Randy Willis

    “The best men I’ve known have been cowmen,” wrote Daniel Hubbard Willis Jr. in 1900. “There’s a code they live by—it’s their way of life. It starts with an abiding reverence for the Good Lord. They’re taught to honor and respect their parents and to share both blanket and bread. Their words are their bond, a handshake their contract. They’re good stewards of His creation, the land. They believe the words in His Book. Learn from these men—from their stories of triumph over tragedy—victory over adversity, for the wisdom of others blows where it wishes—like a Louisiana Wind.” 
     “Louisiana Wind: a Novel of Louisiana” by Randy Willis is the story of such men and the kindle edition is only 99 cents to download at Amazon.com
     Randy Willis is the author of many books, including “Three Winds Blowing,” “Texas Wind,” “LIGHT,” “The Apostle to the Opelousas,” “The Story of Joseph Willis” and is the co-author of “Twice a Slave,” which has been chosen as a Jerry B. Jenkins Select Book, along with four bestselling authors, and adapted into a dramatic play at Louisiana College by Dr. D. "Pete" Richardson.
     He owns Randy Willis Music Publishing (an ASCAP-affiliated music publishing company), and Town Lake Music Publishing, LLC (a BMI-affiliated music publishing company). He is an ASCAP-affiliated songwriter.
     Willis is the founder of Operation Warm Heart which feeds and clothes the homeless, and is a member of the board of directors of Our Mission Possible in Austin, with the goal of empowering at-risk teens to discover their greatness. He is a member of the board of trustees of the Joseph Willis Institute at Louisiana College.
     Randy Willis was born in Oakdale, Louisiana, although he now resides in the Texas Hill Country. He is a fourth great-grandson of Joseph Willis.
