#UnexTex is featured on This Eclectic Life today

Welcome to Day 5 of the #UnexTex Unexpected Texas Book Release Blog Tour for my quirky travel guide Unexpected Texas. It’s now on sale as a paperback and ebook on Amazon. Yippee!

Today, my book is featured on Shelly Tucker’s blog, This Eclectic Life. Not only is Shelly a bona fide native Texan, but a few years ago the National Endownment for the Arts (NEA) named her an “American Masterpiece.” Pretty cool, eh?

Of all the bloggers on the #UnexTex Unexpected Texas Book Release Blog Tour, Shelly is the only one I have met in person. Another distinction for Shelly is that she features prominently in my chapter about the town of Denton. Around those parts, Shelly is known as “the ghost lady.” You can read all about it in this excerpt from Unexpected Texas: The Ghosts of Denton, Texas: Haunted History Tour.

Day 5 #UnexTex Prizes

I didn’t find anything particularly ghostly for today’s prize pack, so I went for the Texas angle. As I mentioned before, Shelly is a native Texan. Today’s prizes include the latest issue of Texas Parks and Wildlife. This ties in with the Athens, Texas chapter of Unexpected Texas in which I describe a visit to the Texas Freshwater Fisheries Center. Not only do they have aquariums and a well-stocked pond, but they will loan you a rod and reel and teach you how to fish.
