In other news about town, its been a very quiet release for the third and final book of the Portsong trilogy: Virgil Creech Rides a Pig. This one was written just before Kylie got sick and I only got to read her four chapters of it. Since our lives turned upside down, releasing the book just didn’t become the highest priority – but I am actually quite proud of it. I think it is a fine ending to the legend of Virgil Creech.
As with everything I write now, proceeds from the sale of this book will go toward Kylie’s mission of finding safer and more effective cures for childhood cancer.
Here is the book’s summary:
The Buxley County Fair comes to Portsong, bringing excitement and its annual pig-riding contest which Virgil Creech sets his stubborn mind on winning. Virgil will stop at nothing in his quest to practice his skills. But even he didn’t plan to barrel through the town’s busy streets atop a runaway pig.
Meanwhile, Sheriff Hub Whitaker has a secret. The problem is, in a small town like Portsong there is no way he can keep his secret to himself. What will he do when everyone in town learns that he has an affection for something other than his pretty girlfriend, Evelyn Crandell?
Enter a mysterious stranger who seems singularly interested in Harland Gentry, and Portsong is in for a wild summer. Everything comes to a head as the fair starts, and we find out if Virgil Creech Rides a Pig to victory in this final traipse through Portsong.
