What Samuel T says:

July 7, 2017

James, your book, A Panther’s Father, is extraordinary. I am not a young man any more, and I realize the things I was taught as a young boy, well, they weren’t always right. Frankly, I’m ashamed at how ignorant I was… Now, I wasn’t the worst kind nor the best kind of man in my time, but I’ve since found Jesus, and He has sure changed my heart. There I go again, but what I mean to say is, your book made me re-evaluate my whole existence. The stories you told. I felt like they were coming from my own grandparents. It’s like (Granny Z) saw into my Soul. She saw the ache I carry, for family, here and the ones that are gone. Z reminded me to love, not just myself, or others like me, but especially my neighbors, like like Jesus. She also reminded me to not be ashamed of my own ancestry, to proud up, if you will. There’s not many books that an individual will read that they can say changed their lives, and your book did that for me James. That’s all I wanted to say about that.

My goodness.  I never expected to receive such a warm and heart-felt evaluation of A Panther’s Father.  And this is how many others have addressed this book.  It is a long paged book.  It is not a short read by any sight.  But, let me please help you.  The book basically has three storylines going on all thru the book.  One is with the LAPD, another is with the Roosevelt family and JeanPaul who is the Panther, and the other is with Dr. Bahu.  The 1st two are from a time period I lived.  The last is from the days when America was bursting to find her own identity like so many of us have done in our lifetimes.  Is it worth reading?  Yeah, it is.

But for now-

Fans, I just wanted to update you.  The 2nd and 3rd books in A Panther’s Father Book Series are coming out in print soon.  The Book Cover Artist has finished the Book Cover Design for A Panther’s Father II and is working to complete the Book Cover Design for A Panther’s Father III.  This is the last thing that needs to be done by this amazing and very gifted Artist, then this artwork will be photographed by a professional photographer and then it will go into the final stages of production for printing.

Folks these two books are so close to being in print that it just ain’t even funny.  And I pray everyday for each and everyone of you.  And I hope that you will continue to tag along with me in this amazing journey.  God Bless and may God’s Grace be with you.

A Panther’s Father II and A Panther’s Father III are scheduled for publication in 2019.

About the Author

      JAMES BROWN is a master storyteller and historian. His most recent work is A Panther’s Father, Books I – III, which is a spiritual series, a testament to the hardships James and his loved ones have faced overseas and here in the New World. He takes his readers on a journey, exploring humanity, the highs and lows, our virtues and vices, our pain, and yet, also our laughter, and all to express the hope and the love the Lord has for each of us.

James is a simple man, a Texan, and when he’s not playing cowboy he’s one heck of a Dad, to three mostly-grown individuals, and one amazing Grandpa to eight grandchildren. He’s been married to his special lady, Janet Brown, who dabbles in math wizardry (i.e. a high school math teacher), for 38 magical years. She is the love of his life, his muse, and best friend. James is also a decorated U.S. Army Veteran, a gunner for a M-60 Main Battle Tank, which the crew affectionately called-Aphrodites.

James is also the author of Handgun Safety, and his work has been featured in The Texas Review and the Sam Houston State Literary Review“The living breathing James Brown” has over 16,000 followers, so join us, we’ve got beer, at http://jamesbrown.blog

And exactly who is this wonderful Book Cover Artist? Well, she is a super, absolutely super special sort of person and my oldest daughter who God allowed us to be able to say-Thank you Father for allowing our daughter to still be with us after suffering a .45 caliber handgun slug ripping thru her chest. She’s in a wheelchair today, but THIS AGGIE IS ALIVE! Again, Thank You, God! All Glory, All Power, All Love, All Honor to God the Father. Amen.

Jessica Arbelaez, Book Cover Designer for A Panther’s Father Book Series.

Folks, I do believe that all three of these books are about to take-off in the very near future with such wonderful messages for all readers who will cherish their taking the time to read them. Yes, I do believe more than ever. And if you are the praying type, then let one loose on these books and it will happen. And your prayer may have been the one to get them over the HUMP OF THE UNKNOWN WRITER. Thank you.


Now, here are Book Cover Designs that were reviewed but they NOT selected-
